Go Green in 4 Weeks

Week 3

Day 15: Go paperless.

With email and online invoicing, there aren’t many reasons why you shouldn’t be using less paper. Use the internet as much as possible and eliminate the need for paper waste.

Day 16: Handel with care.

Taking care of what you have is an essential part of being green. The longer you are able to use existing items, the less waste you’ll create by buying new things.

Day 17: Plant a plant.

Having house or office plants are not just aesthetically pleasing, they also help keep the air you breathe clean and fresh.

Day 18: Collect your cans.

During the first week of your green plan, you started recycling paper. Now you are ready to move up the recycling grid to cans. Contact Collect-a-Can to find your nearest collection point. Before you recycle them, make sure they are clean and dry.

Day 19: Repurpose your rubbish.

Before you throw out or give away the great items you have lying around in your home, think of creative ways to re-use your treasures. You may find that your old ladder could make an interesting shelf.

Day 20: Buy local.

Purchasing locally grown fruits and vegetables reduces the amount of processing, packaging and transportation needed to get the foodfrom the farm to your table.

Day 21: Take it in or let it out.

Find someone in your neighbourhood that can alter your clothes for you when necessary. This will save you time and money that you would have spent purchasing a new wardrobe every time the numbers on the scale change.
