Hit the Road with a Bicycle, see the Toronto Cycling Network ↗ and Waterfront Trails (maps below)

Reduce emissions with an electric car, hybrid car, or more efficient car.
Still emits emissions via manufacturing, energy usage, and maintenance
#2 Retro-fitting Buildings
Improve Insulation & Ventilation (Air-Leakage Control in Roofs and Attics, Basement, Walls, Windows and Doors)
More Efficient Home Heating- use Smart Thermostats (automated control)
Change Lights to LED with Dimmer and Occupancy Controls
Use Low Carbon Construction, and Energy Star Appliances
