Canada wastes more energy than almost every other country in the world, which is why the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance is challenging consumers to change their habits and use less energy with the Eco-City Community Challenge. Everyone benefits when we lower our consumption: families save money and less strain is put on our natural ecosystems and municipal infrastructure.
The Eco-City Community Challenge was designed by Green Living for the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance to educate Canadians on the benefits of energy conservation to our economy and the environment. The goal is to capture and reward the energy savings activities that Canadians have undertaken in their homes, and inspire them to do more. The program will also assist municipalities across the country to achieve their individual goals.
The 7th Annual Green Living Show — North America’s largest consumer show dedicated to providing simple solutions for leading a healthy and sustainable lifestyle—set a new attendance record for the 2013 show.
Crowds enjoyed delicious local and sustainable food and drink at the Ontario Culinary Adventure Pavilion, live animal demonstrations and crafts in the Kids Zone, yoga demonstrations, forest and water pavilions, fashion shows, the Business Forum, the presentation of the inaugural Canadian Green Car Award, and an impressive lineup of health and eco-experts on seven different stages.
