Spring into a greener home

Easy eco-friendly ideas to help you spring clean and spring green your home this season.

Stop getting bills (…paper bills, that is)

Sorting through piles of papers, bills and statements for spring cleaning isn’t fun, is it? So prevent the same scenario from happening again next year. Switch your bills and invoices to electronic form, and use epost.ca. This simple change can save more than 6 pounds of paper, 17 litres of gasoline and 171 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions a year!
