Going off the Grid
Are you doing laundry? Forget to turn out the lights sometimes? Did you know that if we don’t change our ways, there will be very little world to leave our kids, (and UrbanMommies will be kind of pointless). With the Olympics coming to Vancouver, this community wants to create something new and wonderful while the world watches BC. Eagle Island, a typical neighbourhood 90 feet off the West Vancouver shore, wants to get off the grid. But not in the Swiss-Family-Robinson way. This island wants to carry on with dinner parties, taking kids to soccer practice and working via wireless internet – but without the carbon footprint. Let’s help. There are 13 days to vote for a grant that could make this a reality. As I leaned in Political Science… vote early. Vote often. And until the wind turbines arrive – turn off the lights.
Vote to help fund Canada’s first urban sustainable community.
