We at the Rocca Sisters Team are passionate about our environmental initiatives and lowering our collective carbon footprint. With Earth Month upon us, we have been turning our thoughts to the small changes we can make in our lives that can enrich our community and help with environmental conservation. This week, we are proud to announce that the Rocca Sisters Team is partnering with The Halton Environmental Network to help you reduce your home heating and electricity use. A more energy-efficient home will lower your utility bills and reduce the emissions that cause climate change. With this in mind, we are launching our FREE Green Guide e-Book, full of helpful guidelines to reduce your energy consumption and your bills.
- Sealing your home to block winter cold or summer heat, adding up to savings on your energy bill.
- Vampire Power: What it is and how your awareness of it can save you money and lower your carbon footprint.
- Changing air conditioner and furnace filters frequently, resulting in a unit that does not have to work as hard to cool or heat your home, saving you money.
The Green Guide also includes environmentally-themed activities in the community presented by Halton Environmental Network, Conservation Halton and/or the Rocca Sisters Team. Events include:
- Thursday, April 18 – 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm – Working with Nature: Selecting the “Right” Plants – Naturalizing your yard by using native species, organic fertilizers, or a backyard pond. You will leave this workshop with the inspiration and know how to make your garden a low- maintenance oasis. The Burlington Series is hosted at the Tansley Woods Community Center.
