Nova Scotia is FINALLY starting to get some snow, so now is the time to get outside and enjoy some of that winter weather! Here at Green Schools, we talk all about different ways we can save energy and waste-less. One of my favorite ways to save energy is to head outside and enjoy what fun nature has to offer! I love spending time at Trenton Park with its 6 km of hiking trails surrounded by 565 acres of century-old coniferous trees.

With the price of owning a vehicle in Halifax being unattainable for many people, one of our Engagement Officers at Greenschools has been exploring a cheaper and more sustainable method of transportation. After years of bussing, biking, driving, and walking around Halifax, Sandford has been using an electric scooter for day-to-day commuting. Sandford has been “scooting” (while incorrect, it’s more fun to say than scootering) for about 2 months, and has put roughly 500km on his device!

In our webinars, we talk about energy saving but we also like to burn some energy with lots of actions, class participation, and add-on activities! One of our favorite activities with our elementary students is the Ecological Footprint Pledge.
