Life in the Green Lane

Environmental journalist Candice Batista shares video clips and eco-savvy advice from her TV show, A Greener Toronto.

Hello fellow Canadians. Happy New Year. I don't know about you, but I am looking forward to year where we see change in many aspects of our lives. I am hoping for more awareness on climate change in the mainstream media as well as a change in attitude from our federal government.

This week on A Greener Toronto, we team up with the folks at Clean Air Champions, an organization that brings Olympic athletes into the classroom to talk to kids about the importance of good air quality. I got to hold a real gold medal...pretty cool.

Mark Sepic is a musician who uses things that he finds around the house to make instruments, he's very cool! And so is his music.

Now, if you are like me and you love bread, then join me on a tour of Stonemill Bakehouse for the BEST bread you have ever eaten, trust me, I ate the whole loaf. Don't laugh, it's true.

Did you know Ontario has an emerging bio-ecomony? I talk to the Ontario Soybean Growers to find you about this innovative legume.

In Eco Tips, its all about those number you see on plastic bottles, what are they and what do they mean?

And finally, Artscape has transformed the historic Wychwood barns into an environmental centre where art, culture, food and innovation come together.
