July Home Tip: How to go green at the beach

July 17, 2012

Summer is a great time to enjoy Vancouver's beaches and parks. Callum has some ideas on how to do that a little more eco-friendly.

Reusable containers: Have these handy to make packing for the beach easy.
Hydrate: Try making your own drinks, like iced tea, and bring them in old pop bottles. Don't forget the ice!
Routines Reduce Waste: Use the same containers and supplies every time, this will save time and reduce waste.
Buy Local: Try foods that are in season and grown here in BC. They taste great.
Plan for Waste: Make sure you bring something for those rinds, peels and other waste. Don't leave them behind!
Walk: Leave your car at home. Walk, bike or bus down to the beach. Looking for parking sucks!
Sunscreen: Try to find a more natural sunscreen like Green Beaver and don't get burned!
