On Earth Day, we’re reminded each year about the importance of environmental protection, reform and sustainability. But often, what’s required for large-scale change feels overwhelming and impossible.
There are, however, many small, meaningful actions Torontonians can take to help make a difference and live greener lives. From making the switch from driving a motor vehicle to cycling, taking transit or even carpooling, to donating and buying used clothing and conserving water and electricity – every little bit counts.
Recycling, composting and making an effort to divert waste from garbage cans – and eventually, landfills – is also easy to do. Plastic containers and bags, newspapers and pizza boxes, metal cans and so much more can all go into a blue bin.
In celebration of Earth Day 2016, we’ve put together a short online quiz. Think you know Toronto’s recycling, composting and waste-diversion rules? Take our quiz to find out.
