Corinne asks: I am a young student working on a big project for school. My goal is to let people know what we can do to our homes to make them eco-friendly by building a small version of a house and demonstrating it inside it. I was wondering, could you tell me what are 10 easy things we can do to make our house eco-friendly?
Whether it's a real or virtual home I think I have just the answer. We've launched an excellent resource called Sustainability at Home: a toolkit. It's a result of a partnership with The Natural Step, the Light House Sustainable Building Centre and the David Suzuki Foundation. Although this toolkit was made specifically for British Columbians, anyone can use it! Some of the best elements are that it walks you through your home, room by room, comes with a shopping guide to explain labels and a checklist. Enjoy!
