    My environmental passion is lowering mine and my family's carbon footprint by making small lifestyle changes.  Since the pandemic, my children and I are very into recycled art, games, and other things. We have made a ball game, a Barbie doll closet, a bouquet of flowers, pencil holders, flash card holders, vases, and more out of boxes, egg...

    It is so important to support local organizations and businesses, Local businesses are the heart and soul of communities. The more of them that stay in business and thrive, the more the community stays together and thrives. They are often the ones that help and support individual community members when the need arises. We need them to come back...

    It's so great to know the difference and what everything really means. I feel more educated to save some of my $1,500 each year, as well as buy smarter form the outset. :)

    This doesn't surprise me, except when I think about how much my whole neighborhood of 21 houses could save a year! We could build a neighborhood in-ground pool if we saved this money. That would be fun!! :)

    For the past two years, we have had people over for dinner every Friday night. Now, no one is able to go out. I  miss our friends. This week, we made Peach Crumble in individual serving containers so we could seal them hot and deliver them to our usual dinner guests. They were ecstatic! Now, I get to each Peach Crumble and don't have to worry...

    I have a family of squirrels living nearby. I watch them run back and forth on the fence many times per day. Today I learned more about them: They are an alien species - Eastern Squirrels living on the Vancouver Island. They are not good for our Garry Oaks because they typically damage the nut when they bury them, preventing them from...

    Most of our food requires pollinators. Without them, our diet becomes less diverse. This could lead to health problems as we decrease the variety of nutrients we consume. Nutrition is far more complicated than anyone has ever told us.  One summer, I spent an afternoon photographing the different pollinators I saw in the wild blackberries...

    Four years ago, I moved into a suite in a house situated on 5 acres, backing onto wild space. I shared many photos of my new outdoor surroundings with my family. My mother said "what about the inside? What does that look like?" I said "I don't live inside - I just sleep there." I've found that the more time I spend outdoors...

    Today I visited a local egg farm. Our family goes through a lot of eggs, and I like to buy them direct from the producer. Today I got a flat of multi-coloured, multi-sized eggs with imperfect shaped shells. I love them!

    I check my Hydro usage once or twice a month and compare my usage to similar homes nearby. I am consistently below the average. Once or twice in the past 16 months I had above-average use. Typically this happens in the winter if we forget to turn the heat down at bedtime. This reminds us to be vigilant about checking. Our nightly checklist is:...
