Last Thursday (October 27th) Lindsay Coulter, David Suzuki‘s Queen of Green spoke at BCIT. She presented discussion and tips on how to turn a home into a healthy and sustainable environment. Some of her tips include:

  • avoid canned foods, the can contains a BPA lining;
  • if you want people in the office to throw out less garbage, label the garbage can “landfill”;
  • the “Christmas shrimp ring” is one of the worst things to eat this holiday season;
  • when buying products think of their “end of life” , e.g. silicon (currently) cannot be recycled;
  • and there was so much more (you had to be there).

Some tips I already new about, but others where an eye opener. She also talked about the benefits of forest bathing, and idea that came out of Japan.

On another note: David Suzuki just finished airing an interesting 3 part series on nano technology on CBC. You should check out The Nano Revolution: Will Nano Save the Planet? Part 3 talks about how nano technology has the potential to clean up the environmental mess we have created.
