LNBF's Top 5 Green Tips

Posted on 08 September 2014

Small steps can lead to big changes! Here are LNBF's top 5 simple steps to reduce your ecological footprint!

Use a reusable water bottle
WHY: The energy we waste using bottled water would be enough to power 190,000 homes.
Our favourite: S’well bottles from Eco Existence
Use cloth towels
WHY: Paper towels are expensive, unnecessary and a major contributor of landfill waste.
Our favourite: Learn how to make your own from Crafty Gemini
Use reusable shopping bags
WHY: Plastic bags can take up to 1000 years to break down, yet every year we use over 9 billion in Canada!
Our favourite: Canadian company credo bags are sold at Grassroots
Swap before you shop
WHY: The average Canadian disposes 14kg of textile waste a year. By buying gently used clothing instead of new, you’ll reduce your contribution.
Our favourite: The Kind Exchange sells gently used clothing and accessories, and takes your unwanted clothes (for cash!).
Make your own cleaning products
WHY: Many of our household cleaning products contain harmful chemicals that can disrupt our hormone and reproductive systems - not to mention the countless hard plastic containers you throw out when you're done with them. Make your own to avoid disruptive toxins and avoid adding to the landfill.
Our favourite: Great printable of easy-to-make, effective green cleaning recipes via David Suzuki's Queen of Green
