Tonnes for Trees

Environment Hamilton (EH) has launched a great initiative called Tonnes for Trees. With pilot projects in Kirkendall, Strathcona, and Westdale neighbourhoods, the Tonnes for Trees initiative is encouraging residents to commit to reducing their annual production of carbon emissions and help plant more trees in the process.

With a 63 point (!) carbon calculator and a host of air pollution-reducing ideas, this program could make a real difference for the quality of life in Hamilton.

Check out the EH website for more details.
