VANCOUVER | TRADITIONAL, UNCEDED TERRITORIES OF THE xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (MUSQUEAM), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (SQUAMISH) AND səlilwətaɬ (TSLEIL-WAUTUTH) FIRST NATIONS – The David Suzuki Foundation has launched a “Living Green” digital content stream, with tips and resources for living sustainably.

Members of the Living Green community will learn everyday solutions for lowering their climate impact; protecting, respecting and restoring nature; and supporting safer, healthier communities; via:

  • A monthly digest email with tips and resources to live sustainably, including simple DIY recipes and how-tos. Topics include: body care, culture, food, home and garden, travel and recreation and zero waste.
  • Membership to a community of people striving to make sustainable living mainstream, plus ways to build community by empowering and connecting with others.
  • Inspiration and ideas to fire up their commitment to the people and places they love, and help everyone act on the understanding that we are one with nature.
  • Chances to speak out on issues they care about.

While systemic change is needed to address the environmental crises we face, science confirms that small everyday actions add up to a create meaningful impacts, and can help support the larger societal transformations needed.

“Confronting major issues like climate disruption, pollution and species extinction requires top-down actions from governments, industry and societal institutions, but each of us can contribute to the tidal wave of change the planet needs,” scientist, broadcaster, author and Foundation co-founder David Suzuki said. “After all, humanity’s utter interdependence with nature means that how we treat our surroundings affects us all.”

In 2008, the Foundation became one of the first environmental organizations in Canada to create a sustainable lifestyle content stream through its “Queen of Green,” which grew into a network of nearly 50,000 community members. Through Living Green, the Foundation is also calling on the public to join the conversation, ask questions, share tips and expertise and co-create community wisdom.

Anyone can subscribe to Living Green emails, or access Living Green content through the Foundation’s social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). The full archive of content can be found at
