Outdoor People: Over the weekend, U.S. Snowboarder Chloe Kim Wins First Competition Back in Nearly Two Years (I’m sure you know that she’s also an amazing singer…or am I the only one that watches Masked Singer? #guiltypleasure) (1 min read)

Despite falling on her first trick Saturday, Kim nailed a frontside 1080 nearly an hour later to win the Laax Open in Switzerland, scoring an 89.75 on her second of two runs.

Waste Less: Start the new year off right with some changes to your sustainability strategy at home. (1 min read)

If the coronavirus pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we can all do more to be better stewards to the environment. While it’s admirable to say you’re going to strive to be more eco-friendly this year, it’s a goal that’s hard to quantify or can easily be forgotten if you’re not set up for success.

Do Better: Random Acts of Green inspires you to track the ways you're helping the planet by earning points (eg. weekly recycling 600 points, cold water laundry load 30 points) that can be used for savings at eco-friendly stores (my fav - 2000 green points for 25% off at Simply Natural Canada). Download the app here - IOS / Android. (1 min watch)

Random Acts of Green is a social enterprise whose mission is simple, yet ambitious: to educate, entertain, engage, and empower the public to participate in more sustainable behaviour, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and combat climate change. They believe that sustainability is NOT just for “tree huggers” hippies, or protestors – and have set out on a mission to prove it!
