Saving Polar Bears One Christmas At A Time

Let's be honest: winter is not necessarily a time when people are overly cautious about saving the environment. Environmental ads on the television get muted between watching Christmas Specials, gift wrapping is torn up and thrown in the trash, everyone drives everywhere in their warm, heated seats. We aren't condemning you, but we do have some tips of ways you can help aid environmental efforts during this holiday season:

 

1). Use LED lights to decorate your home! They are 90% more energy efficient than normal bulbs, and just as beautiful! Not only will the save you money, but they will help cut down on energy.

 

2). Recycle your Christmas tree! Don't just throw it in the trash. Cut it down and store the logs for a summer campfire, use the needles in compost, or cut it into little pieces and use it as mulch for your garden! If this sounds like too much work, look up tree recycling programs in your city and they will do all the dirty work for you.

 

3). Cut down on tinsel and use popcorn strands instead! A lot of Christmas decorations are a one-use-kill-the-environment kind of deal. Does tinsel look biodegradable? No? I didn't think so. Be creative—turn finding natural, recyclable Christmas decorations into a fun project!

 

4). Spare the harsh chemicals for getting rid of snow and do it the old fashioned way! With a snow blower, of course.

 

On behalf of us and polar bears everywhere, thank you.

 
Winter Wonderland Woes

winter

 

It's that time of season! Lights are on the house, a chill is in the air and snow is on the ground! Wasn't it such a beautiful picture back when you were young and too small to carry a shovel? All that snow, blowing around in the wind, settling on the front yard of your property like a white blanket promising hot chocolate and cheesy Christmas movies?

 

Perhaps that ideal has changed now that you're a homeowner. Perhaps now the beautiful, majestic snow means twenty minutes (if you're lucky) of back-breaking, toe numbing, teeth-chattering shoveling, of which your only solace is repeating the manta 'spring will come, spring will come, spring will come' like the little winter train who thinks he can.

 

You're probably wondering, "If it's illegal for me to not clear my driveway and sidewalk, then why doesn't the city do it for me?" That's a great idea! Let me know what Nenshi thinks when you propose that the next time you two chat. In case he says, "You're a lunatic, how did you get my cell phone number?"... We've got you covered.

 

Here are some easy snow removal tips:

 

1). It may be obvious for most of you, but we all know that person who NEVER shovels their yard and then complains when it becomes a giant brick of snowy, icy, horror. Don't want to be that guy? Shovel your walk as soon as snow begins piling up! Even if it's still snowing—rest assured, your hard work will not go to waste. Better to slowly shovel it away when it's nice and fluffy than when it's a giant block of ice.

 

2). Sometimes despite your best efforts, snow and ice piles up! Take a tip from the professionals, and sprinkle salt on your sidewalk and driveway! The salt helps melt the snow faster and more effectively! Bonus: it serves the duel purpose of helping provide grip when you're walking, too!

 

3). Go to your local Canadian Tire and buy a De-Icer! It sounds like a made up word, but it is actually a chemical that helps break the bond between ice and pavement so that snow and ice is easier to remove! Ahead of the game? Buy an Anti-Icer that prevents this bond from happening, period. *Note: Make sure you follow directions on the bottles carefully, because the last thing you want is for your hate for a snowy walkway to harm the environment.

 

4). Break down and buy a snow blower. Do you live in Canada? Yes? Then it's worth it. Trust us on this. It's not only effective, but can be fun to use, too. Bonus: Have your neighbors recently been less than neighborly? Blow all the snow onto their drive way. That'll teach them.
