Tips for a pleasant… and responsible summer!!
Finally, the sun and the summer vacation is here! Whether you’re at home or on the roads in Quebec or Canada to explore the surrounding area, we wanted to share some habits to adopt to enjoy sunny days in a green way.
To quench your thirst at the beach, in the mountains or on the campsite, bring your gourds, coffee cups and thermos to avoid disposable bottles and containers.
For a snack break, favour [sd1] washables fabric bags rather than plastic bags.
Avoid food waste by planning all your meals during your vacation.
Use products that are not toxic to the environment (shampoo, cosmetics, laundry soap, sunscreen, household products, mosquito repellent). Even better, concoct your own natural blends! You will find several recipes on the web. And why not involve children in the creation of your products? This is a fun and educational activity!
Always have reusable bags in your car! A tip for you ladies: there are compact sizes that fit very well in your handbag!
Choose to buy local products and avoid imported products. This is a good way to encourage the local economy and reduce your ecological footprint.
Take the time to sort your waste at the source (recycling, compost or trash). It’s so simple and yet so important! Most public places have the right containers.
