Canadians pledge to make Earth Day Every Day

Earth Day Canada hosted a lively assembly at Queens Park yesterday, to launch the Earth Day Every Day 5-year campaign that provides Canadians with the tools they need to reduce their carbon impacts, not just on Earth Day, but every day!

Registering on EDED.ca, people can post daily green acts, track their impact, and win prizes.  The tool launched with a ‘clean commute’ theme and offers 25 ways to reduce the carbon associated with transportation, which represents 23% of people’s carbon footprint on average.

VGP’s (Very Green People) attending the Earth Day assembly included Scott McGillivray (HGTV’s Income Property), Glenn Murray, Ontario Minister of Environment and Climate Change, eco-adventurers Water Brothers (TVO) and Deb Doncaster, President of Earth Day Canada.

In the front row are WorldVuze’s Program students from Bishop Strachan School, who lead a group of over 150 elementary and secondary school students in the 2015 Earth Day Every Day pledge: I pledge to make Earth Day Every Day and reduce my carbon footprint. Attendees also signed an Earth Flag destined for the Paris Climate talks later this year.
