nature challenge

The David Suzuki Foundation has researched the best actions you can take to protect nature and improve your quality of life for the future. The good news is that simple changes can make a real difference! Sign up for the Nature Challenge and see how many of the following actions you can do!

1. Reduce home energy use by 10%
An energy-efficient home will lower your utility bills and reduce your environmental impact. Heating accounts for nearly 60% of energy use in the average Canadian home.

2. Choose an energy-efficient home and appliances
R-2000 homes use 30% less energy than standard homes. Modern appliances are better for the environment.

3. Don’t use pesticides
Small children and pets are especially vulnerable to the dangers of chemicals.

4. Eat meat-free meals one day a week
The production and processing of grains requires far less water and land than does meat.

5. Buy locally grown and produced food
Try buying local food for one month a year. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants from food transportation.

6. Choose a fuel-efficient vehicle
A typical SUV uses almost twice the fuel of a modern car, although both seat the same number of passengers.

7. Walk, bike or take transit to work
The air we breathe inside our cars can be up to 10 times more polluted than the air outside.

8. Choose a home close to work or school
If you live in a convenient location, you’ll lower your emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.

9. Support alternative transportation
Transit lines and bike paths mean less pollution, less gridlock and urban sprawl.

10. Learn more and share with others
We can inspire our elected leaders to incorporate environmental conservation into public policy.

We invite you to sign up for the Nature Challenge and you’ll receive our monthly newsletter full of news and handy tips to protect the environment.
