Happy Earth Day!

Below you’ll find a list of the Porpoise team's favourite sustainability tips. When put in place these actions can be good for both your wallet and the planet! 

  1. Turn off the lights, open up your curtains, and let in some natural light. 
  2. Turn down your thermostat a couple of degrees and throw on a sweater.
  3. Use cold water rather than hot water whenever possible. 
  4. Shower rather than taking baths when possible.
  5. Don’t run the tap continuously when shaving, brushing teeth, and doing dishes. 
  6. Switch to LED lightbulbs.
  7. Shop locally when possible. 
  8. Avoid purchasing single-use items (ex:disposable razors).
  9. Try to reduce food waste.
  10. Eat less meat, and more grains and vegetables. 
  11. Use reusable straws and containers. 
  12. Go digital/paperless when possible.
  13. Sort your garbage, recycle materials, and compost your waste.
  14. If possible, carpool with your friends or colleagues. 
  15. Opt for human powered modes of transportation or public transportation.
