Live Green Toronto! Save the planet & some money while you’re at it!

Posted in: Stuff You Use

I try to be as environmentally friendly as possible.  Yet, being “green” can put quite a dent in the ol’ wallet.   I’m OK with forking out a few extra dollars to buy organic, support local food, and be good to the planet…but I’ll take a deal when I can snag one!

If you already LIKE me. myself. and food.  today, you’re going to LOVE us for this find!   Unless of course, you’re way ahead of me and already have one of these in your purse.

Background:  I met a new mother in my neighbourhood yesterday while examining her stroller.  When I told her I was buying our UppaBaby at “ Baby on the Hip ” she responded…”Make sure you have your Live Green card, because you’ll save $75 (10%)”.   Did someone say “save”?!   Thank you, Julie!

Get this!  Toronto offers something called the Live Green Toronto Membership which comes with discounts at TONS of green stores across the city.  The Membership Card is available to people who live, work, and shop in Toronto – and it’s FREE!
