http://www.thegreenrock.ca – Habits for your Habitat
Think Global. Live Local.
thegreenrock.ca~habits for your habitat is a non profit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of, and promoting sustainable living practices to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The northeast Avalon is a peninsula off the edge of an island in the North Atlantic. We have fresh air, clean water, and a history of conservation, respect for and historical reliance on the land and sea. Through economic development, growth and change the population has moved away from its land- and sea-based roots. While there are currently strong pockets of environmentalism throughout the province, and many organizations working toward sustainable, healthier solutions, as a whole we are not leaders in environmental practice. That can change.
A thegreenrock.ca survey (2010) targeting women aged 30-50 in the east end of the capital City of St. John’s shows that 100% of survey respondents are ‘interested in information that will make it easier for you to integrate green habits into your daily life.” People need information and guidance. thegreenrock.ca works to make information available, connect the strength and capacities of like-minded organizations toward the sustainable goals in a positive, non-nonjudgmental, collaborative manner.
In 2011, thegreenrock.ca site was launched and, in partnership with the Conservation Corps, a video series on sustainable, green practices and practitioners in the greater St. John’s area was developed to make practical knowledge accessible, appealing and inspiring to viewers.
thegreenrock.ca website is complemented by a facebook page also called thegreenrock.ca.
