Bullfrog Power is committed to helping Canadians live eco-friendly lifestyles. That’s why we created our green energy solutions – to help you reduce your environmental impact and fight climate change.
With back-to-school just a couple weeks away, we’ve pulled together some simple tips to help you make this the greenest school year yet! Check out the list below – and if you have any tips to add, feel free to share them with us in the comments.
- Walk, bike or scoot to school together – it’s a great way to get active in the morning while avoiding the carbon emissions that result from driving or public transit.
- Pack lunches and snacks in eco-friendly, reusable containers. We love shopping at FENIGO for all things litterless lunch – plus, they’re bullfrogpowered with green electricity. Our favourite FENIGO pick: this frog-printed snack bag!
- Refresh last year’s school clothes with a DIY upgrade. Check out this video for an easy jean jacket update.
- Keep an eye out for bullfrogpowered ingredients when shopping for lunch supplies. Try an egg salad sandwich with Burnbrae Farms eggs, Hellmann’s mayonnaise and Stonemill Bakehouse bread – all are bullfrogpowered with green energy!
- Need a notepad for jotting down class notes or to-do lists? Staples’ Sustainable Earth notebooks and paper products are made from 80% sugarcane plant fiber waste – a rapidly renewable agricultural resource.
- Fall is harvest season for many fruits and vegetables grown in Canada, such as apples, corn and squash, to name a few. As an after-school or weekend outing, head to your local farmers’ market as a family and pick up produce for a local foods lunch!
- Does last year’s backpack have a torn shoulder strap? As an alternative to replacing it, try a DIY repair by following this guide. If your backpack is beyond repair, consider purchasing a new one at a bullfrogpowered retailer such as MEC.
- Stash bullfrogpowered snacks in kids’ lunchboxes – Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bites and Taste of Nature organic snack bars are two healthy picks.
- Bullfrog Power now offers green power for devices, including computers. For less than $10, students can bullfrogpower their laptops with 100% green energy for the whole year. Learn more here.
- Get the whole family involved in going green! Encourage your kids to share ideas for eco-friendly living at home and school—and work together as a family to make them happen.
