Eden Mills to go Carbon Neutral

By Ryan McGreal
Published December 07, 2009

The village of Eden Mills, a small town outside Milton, Ontario, has pledged to go carbon neutral - to ensure that the town is not a net emitter of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

The initiative has been building steam since 2007, with a regular newsletter and a Footprint Survey [PDF link] to determine how much needs to be done to achieve this ambitious goal.

Ryan McGreal, the editor of Raise the Hammer, lives in Hamilton with his family and works as a programmer, writer and consultant. Ryan volunteers with Hamilton Light Rail, a citizen group dedicated to bringing light rail transit to Hamilton. Ryan writes a city affairs column in Hamilton Magazine, and several of his articles have been published in the Hamilton Spectator. He also maintains a personal website and has been known to post passing thoughts on Twitter @RyanMcGreal. Recently, he took the plunge and finally joined Facebook.
