Today is World Environment Day, Montreal! On days like today (and every other day), it's important to recognize what we all do for our planet...big and small!
From using public transport, to reducing electricity and all the way to abandoning single-use plastics, there is a multitude of things we can do every day to keep our planet healthy and pollution-free.
Plus, Montrealers now have the advantage of saying they live in the most sustainable city in North America! Yep, that's right! Montreal was recently given this title by the Global Sustainability Destinations Index at the end of last year.
here are many things that lead to believe this ranking was awarded to our beloved city. In its 2016-2020 sustainability plan, Montreal's plan put in place collective actions to reach sustainability, such as:
Encouraging the use of public transportation
Organize more eco-responible / zero-waste events
Further develop local cultures
Put in place a circular economy
Electrify and optimize Montreal's transportation methods
