Over the edge of seventeen

Last week we asked you what your plans are for the new year. Missed it? Like magic, here you go. We gave 17 options (cuz 2017), mixing up traditional resolutions with some (subliminal) sustainable suggestions. Happily, you chose a lot of sustainable suggestions!  The results tells us a lot about you. (Note that what follows is entirely based on my glance at the results at precisely 3:45 pm on Wednesday).

Tune into our Blog everyday during the month of January for simple day-to-day things we can do to make UHN (and the world) a better place. Wouldn’t it be great to reduce our waste and our waist at the same time? Get the mind-body-spirit connection by getting outside and recycling (but in french!). What a revolution to the world of resolutions.
