Riverdale CI is participating in Project Neutral, please read the information below and support us in this.
Project Neutral is an organization run by volunteer neighbourhood members who want to help individuals, families, and the Riverdale community lower their carbon footprint.
This fall, Project Neutral is launching its 3rd annual Household Carbon Footprint Survey. Their campaign encourages households to measure their carbon footprint based on energy and water use, and transportation and food choices. Each participating household will be able to view a breakdown of their carbon footprint and see how they compare to our neighbours. Also, all households will eligible for over $2000 in prizes and incentives!
There is an additional prize of $500 for the school in Ward 30 that has the highest number of families complete the survey.
The deadline for completing the survey and being eligible for the prizes is Dec 1, 2013.
