The Little Canadian Town That Could Go Carbon Neutral

first_imgIn today’s Big Story podcast, sometime very soon, Eden Mills, Ontario, will become Canada’s first carbon-neutral community. How did it happen? You might be surprised. It wasn’t with millions in carbon taxes. Or through government intervention. It didn’t come from a billionaire’s sweetheart investment. It’s not a PR stunt.One citizen saw communities overseas who had proven it was possible. He came back home and started enlisting his neighbours. And the idea spread. Small things became bigger things. Everyone started to get excited, and everyone wanted to play a role. That’s it. That’s how it happened. Now…how does it happen elsewhere?GUEST: Alireza Naraghi, Maclean’s (Read his story from Eden Mills, right here) Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.You can subscribe to The Big Story podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google and SpotifyYou can also find it at
