A Cleaner Future
Starts Now

Our everyday choices matter. How we get around, what we eat, the way we power our homes – these daily decisions have an impact on the climate. Now is the time for us to change the future, by committing to choices that reduce our contribution to climate change.

We’re a group of Ontarians choosing to reduce our carbon pollution through our everyday actions. We are fighting climate change by driving less, or eating more plant-based meals or making our homes more energy efficient. You can too.

When you join us, we’ll send you ways that you can take action on climate change from the people leading this movement. We’ll also fill you in on money-saving incentives and rebates that help your pocketbook while you help the planet.

Everyone – governments, corporations, individuals – has a role to play in addressing climate change, and we need to act now. We need strong policies, forward looking companies, and millions of people taking small steps every day to reduce our carbon emissions.

Together, we choose a cleaner future. We choose to move forward instead of standing still. We know that when we choose to act, we change the future.

We want you to make that choice with us. Join the movement.
