We've got TWO Home Energy Efficiency Team (H.E.E.T.) events coming up. Learn about actions you can take to lower your home's carbon footprint, and even learn specifically what to look for in the hardware store when you want current-generation efficient showerheads and lightbulbs.
The first event is on Wednesday Sept. 27th between 7-9 pm at St. Anselm Church, 1 McNaughton Road. The second event will be on Tuesday is Oct. 10th between 7-9 pm at Runnymede Library, 2178 Bloor Street West.
We've been tweeting up a storm about the Sept. 22nd Green Energy Mixer (so give us a retweet when you have a minute), but that event is kicking off a whole Green Energy Doors Open Weekend. All through the province there are open houses showcasing things like the Clean Energy Zone at Ryerson, the green energy features at Steam Whistle Brewery, and the electronics recycling at Free Geek Toronto. Learn about it at the mixer, and visit sites all weekend.
As much fun as you can have in the next few weeks between H.E.E.T. and the Green Energy Mixer, you have to admit that the year wouldn't be complete without a trip to the EcoFair at the Barns. Learn about a new neighbourhood solar power initiative, get an awesome lunch, donate used electronics, take part in hands-on activities, and come away with a deeper connection to the green options and enterprises in your city.
