Everyone Has A Story

Londoners are taking action every day to reduce waste, save energy and help the environment. We are half way through London's Community Energy Action Plan (CEAP) and are seeing great results! Check out the CEAP: It's All Up in the Air video above to see what we’ve all accomplished so far and what else we can do.

New Home, New Outlook

A Story About Reducing Waste

Map for New Home, New Outlook
Written by pamlupa@gmail.com 3 months ago

I just bought a new home. While I was fully aware of my water, garbage, and hydro habits when I was living at home, I didn't pay the bills so I kind of just used it all. I took long showers, left lights on, and tended not to recycle. Now that I own a home, I completely recognize the error of my ways. Saving money is a great impetus towards better environmental practices. So, now I recycle constantly, use energy in off-peak hours, and take shorter showers (well, that one I'm still working on). All in all, I'm on my way to being better.

In the last year, we have made a concerted effort to use less paper and plastic waste. We have purchased a a set of silicone food covers and a Norwex envirocloth to use with our reusable lettuce bag instead of paper towels. We have purchased beeswax reusable food wraps to use alongside our reusable snack bag instead of buying plastic wrap and bags. We reuse water bottles. To clean, we use Enjo products as much as possible. We are a composting household. We must be kinder to the environment.

A Story About Reducing Waste

Map for It's all about choice
Written by GAIL FRASER 4 months ago

My husband and I try to purchase food without the containers. We found that our mushrooms were in a container that was not recyclable. We now we use the loose mushrooms and gather them in a paper bag - the only place in grocery stores with paper bags. I have been known to use those bags for my Brussels sprouts too.
I find my garbage is a lot of plastic film. In the Kawartha's (family cottage) the film is taken in recycling. That would drop my garbage footprint a lot.
