The Ecology of Ottawa

Check out this nifty site from Ecology Ottawa!

It explains how we are all connected through water, heat, electricity, fuel, stuff and food. It explains where all these things come from, where they go after we've used them, and how we can be better stewards of the things that connect us.

For example, did you know that 18% of Ontario's electricity comes from coal, and that 39% of electricity is consumed from appliances?
The simple solution? Turn it down, turn it off!

This site is a great resource. It's easy to navigate. It provides useful information and helpful, simple tips. Even if you don't live in the Ottawa area, I think this site is well worth the visit! And don't forget to check out my favourite section on, you guessed it, stuff!
