Climate change is scary, but taking action doesn’t have to be. It is often difficult to settle on real, tangible changes you can make in your own life to stop climate change. This is why Ecology Ottawa has launched a campaign to educate residents of Ottawa about the local actions they can take to fight climate change. There has never been a better time to ‘go green’ in Ottawa. There are a number of incentive programs available to help you save on energy and reduce your greenhouse gas emissions at the same time.
