Before the One Million Acts of Green was introduced on The Hour many of us were already getting into patterns and habits that help the environment and ourselves.
Soon after I moved to Toronto, two years ago, I woke up to what a walkable city it is. I purposely moved to an area that I could walk to the downtown core from. I work as as an Administrative Temp and most of my jobs are in the core. I now walk 35 minutes each way to be fitter and greener. It's also cheaper. I have bus tokens for bad weather days and I leave my car at home. It's for weekend excursions only. I may even sell it and be free of the automobile. But one step at a time. This good habit started off slowly with a thought, 'can I walk home from here and how long will it take?' Now it's second nature and I am starting new green habits inspired by the
One Million Acts of Green page.
Such as taking my The Hour mug off my desk at work to the coffee shop on the ground floor to fill up my mug instead of wasting paper cups. It's one idea you can find there. During this campaign the Stroumboulopouli will all be writing about how the Acts of Green is affecting or infecting us in our lives. Please share your idea here or on the website. We have a community group on the site anyone can join.
