Each year, every Canadian produces an average of five tonnes of greenhouse gases.
If you drive 20,000 kilometres a year, reducing your annual distance by only 10 per cent (or 2,000 kilometres) will reduce your greenhouse gas emissions by a Ĺ tonne or more.
By replacing five light bulbs in your home with compact fluorescent light bulbs, you can reduce your greenhouse gas emissions by 1/8 tonne.
Breathe easier. Enjoy the outdoors.
Decreasing the amount of energy we use means less greenhouse gases emitted into the air and a lot more breathing room for all of us.
Reducing the harmfulness of climate change also means that we get to enjoy Vancouverís spectacular outdoors, the mountains, parks, lakes, waterfronts, and beaches, for generations to come.
