In a tree census in London Ontario carried out over the last 2 years it was found that there were 4.2 million trees, approximately 12 trees for each member of the population.
This sounds extremely healthy, however the problem seems to be that these trees are not in areas that are truly regarded as woodland.
London has 27.4% leaf cover which is considerably higher than other major cities including Toronto which is only 19.9%.
The UFORE report estimates the value of London’s trees at approximately $1.5 billion.
Programs like Scout Trees have a considerable impact on these numbers as in London they plant approximately 5,000 new trees each year, these come from public donations, and make the scouts the single biggest charitable contributor to new trees in London every year.
I was surfing around earlier today and came across a very interesting idea that’s helps the environment, by saving on paper, fuel to deliver the paper and much more.
It’s an idea called the Personal Wedding Site. The whole idea behind this is, they will document your wedding and it’s build up online. I hear you say but how is that green, well the whole idea is the invitation response, how to get there, registry info etc. etc. is all held online.
So no paper is needed, no need to mail stuff back and forth, changes are posted on-line and best of all so are the pictures.
Oh and I almost forgot, these guys claim that suppliers to you like to give discounts in return for you posting them on your site. So that’s green as well !!!!!
Great Idea Personal Wedding Sites you’ve made the frog very happy going into the weekend. Keep up the green work and Keep up the green work and watch for Changes to Same sex wedding regulations..
