- Take public transit to work
- Conserve energy
- Eat local
- Plant a tree
Or, even better, maybe this is the time to start greening your workplace, with ideas like energy conservation, car pooling, recycling, reducing waste, etc. CUPE has produced a fact sheet if you want to set up an environment committee in your workplace.
CUPE also wants to encourage and promote existing green practices in our locals’ workplaces. You may submit your local for our 2016 Earth Day contest. Deadline is May 6th.
