- Switch on. One of the easiest ways to turn green is to switch out old-style light bulbs for energy-saving fluorescent lights. Changing just half of your household light sources can mean big savings for you.
- Use reuseable. Cloth grocery bags make a difference in landfill volume.
- Buy local. Shop at local farmerâ€™s markets or stores with the maple leaf sign reducing truck fuel usage and investing in your community. When buying seafood, ask for â€œocean-friendlyâ€ types.
