The CCRD encourages everyone to make it count for Earth Day 2015 on Wednesday, April 22. The theme this year is “clean your commute”, where Canadians are asked to green up their trip to school, work or wherever they’re travelling. There are a variety of green commuting options available including walking, biking, carpooling and taking public transit or school bus.

CCRD also encourages and supports all residents to take actions around the three pillars of Earth Day: conserving energy, reducing waste, and to remember that Earth Day is really ever day! Join in with other Canadians in a combined effort to lessen our impact on the environment. For more information on ways to be involved in creating a more sustainable Earth please visit Earth Day’s website at earthday2015.ca.
