The Green Challenge

Chive FlowerFor the last 5 days, I’ve gotten a daily email tip from Canadian Living’s Green Challenge on how to live a little greener. Not a lot. Just a little.  But add up 30 little ways to make my life more eco-friendly, and multiply that by the number of people who are reading… and bing bang boom, we’re making a difference.

Green Challenge Tips like:

Cover your pots when boiling water on the stove.

Then you simply respond to the challenge with:
· I’ll take the challenge
· I already do this

Did you know that boiling 4.5 litres of water in a covered pot uses four times less energy than boiling without a lid. Actually, it also means your water boils noticeably faster too.
