Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe.

Recycle paper, plastics, and cans

Recycling of waste products also help our environment from destruction. Recycling helps protect the environment. Recycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials. All of these create substantial air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.

Stop littering

  • Always have available a litter bag in your car.
  • If you are a smoker, carry and use a portable or pocket ashtray.
  • If you see litter, pick it up
  • Make sure your trash cans have lids that can be securely fastened or use bungee cords to hold them in place.
  • Secure all bags and use twine to secure loose trash for curbside trash collection.
  • Tie paper into bundles before placing into curbside recycling bins.

Walk to your destination instead of driving

Walking is great way to safe the environment from climate change. Active transportation, such as walking, cycling, in-line skating or skateboarding, is a great way to reduce greenhouse gases. These gasses harm our environment as they contribute to climate change.

The average car emits 4 tonnes of carbon dioxide in a year. Vehicles contribute to about 30% of total greenhouse gas emissions in Canada. We would save about 3.8 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year if everybody left their car at home just one day a week. This is the equivalent of taking about 800,000 cars off the road.
