Sunday Morning Coffee is the place where I sit down with a big cup o' joe and recap the past week's events - from my favourite posts of the week, to the happenings here at t.o. & fro, and even share my "Eco-Tip of the Week" to encourage you to live a more responsible and sustainable lifestyle. So please, grab your Sunday morning poison and join me...
Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of March? We are already 1/4 through 2014! Now if only Mother Nature would get on board with spring.
Steve's last day of the season is this afternoon. I always get so stressed around this time of the year because it means we have to pack up and move some place new for the summer and that next season is usually up in the air. But, despite my occasional breakdown this year, I'm excited to be at home this summer and to see what next season brings us.

Eco-tip 11. Earth Hour
Yesterday was Earth Hour. You may have heard of it... You know, that one hour a year that the entire world turns off their lights to take a stand against climate change?!
Millions of people worldwide participate in this symbolic event, including iconic landmarks. Last night, I got to witness the CN Tower in total darkness. Toronto Hydro even tweeted that power usage across the Greater Toronto Area dropped by 6%! And while this hour is more of a visual vote against climate change than an energy-saving hour, it is very interesting to hear how much power this city actually consumes, reaffirming why it is so important that we be more responsible and protect our planet.
So even though Earth Hour 2014 has passed, please take a moment today to think about how important Earth is to you. We only have one planet, you can help protect it.
Did you participate in Earth Hour last night? What did you chose to do for your one hour of darkness?
If you have a good tip for greening your life, or even a photo of your living a more sustainable lifestyle, I'd love to hear about it and even feature it as my "eco-tip of the week" during Sunday Morning Coffee! Please leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your tips and photos.
Have a good week!
