I hear a lot of pessimism today from people who feel our system is broken and beyond hope. I disagree. I see things we can do everyday to advance the cause of wiser, cleaner, more sustainable, policies and habits. But we have to care enough to take action rather than just complain or stick our head in the sand and keep doing things the same old way.
Cultivating self-discipline and respect for the health of ourselves, our families and the planet is an easy place to start in my view. Part of this is a commitment to eat fresh, natural foods, grown by conscientious farmers, and locally where ever possible. Another is a commitment to regular exercise. A third and key element is how we chose to use energy both in the type of vehicles we drive and in how we heat, cool and power our buildings. For the past 7 years we have been buying our electricity for home and office through Bullfrog Power:
“Bullfrog Power, Canada’s 100% green energy provider, offers homes and businesses clean, renewable energy solutions. By choosing Bullfrog Power’s green energy, you can reduce your environmental impact, support the development of new renewable generation in Canada and help to create a cleaner world for today and tomorrow.
When you choose Bullfrog Power, Bullfrog’s generators inject 100% green electricity or 100% green natural gas onto the respective energy system to match the amount of electricity or natural gas your home or business uses.
Bullfrog’s green electricity comes exclusively from regionally sourced wind and hydro facilities that have been certified as low impact by Environment Canada under its EcoLogoM program—instead of from polluting sources like coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear. We offer a green electricity choice to everyone in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.”
Today we are happy to add their newest offering 100% green natural gas. Bullfrog makes it painless to go green. It is easy to sign up and they take over direct billing from your current service providers. This is the link for your home and for your business.
Here are some video clips for more info. . Even if you are not sure about whether you believe humans are a major factor in climate change, burning organic, renewable energy just makes sense for better efficiency of world resources and health for ourselves our families and our planet. Honestly this is a win-win, no brainer that will make you less of the problem and more of the solution leading the world towards a brighter future.
Every little step in the right direction makes a difference, one thoughtful family at a time. If you think about it, why in the world wouldn’t you do this?
