Our Wish for a Greener 2021
Posted on January 5, 2021
2020 was a roller coaster for many of us, but we are incredibly grateful for all the support we received during these challenging times!
With 2020 behind us and a new year ahead, here are some ideas to create your own green goals for 2021:
Support your local farmers and businesses
2020 was a difficult year for many independent local farmers and businesses. If your budget allows, choose to buy fresh produce from your local farmers on a regular basis. Worried about going into the store? Many local businesses, such as YYC Growers, are offering delivery options as well. Not only will this support our local businesses, but it also reduces the emission from transportation by sourcing locally.
Bring your own reusable containers for refills!
If there’s anything that defines 2020 and the beginning of 2021, it would be soap and cleaning products! Ditch the single-use plastic and bring your own containers to get your liquid soap and other cleaning products from a refillery such as The Apothecary in Calgary.
Save energy at home
With many of us staying at home until further notice, there are many ways you can save energy in your home! From lowering your thermostats to hang drying your laundry, saving energy is a direct climate action you can take! Check out our energy efficiency tips sheet here.
