Nova Scotia Going Green
For the past week, my family and I have been on a trip exploring the beautiful Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island provinces of Canada. Recently, I read some amazing facts in a magazine about Nova Scotia. Some of these include the following: Nova Scotia has Canada's highest recycling rate, it produces about 50 percent less waste than the Canadian average, and it is striving to have 40 percent of it's electricity needs met by renewable sources by 2020. All of these facts show that Nova Scotia is among the most environmentally active provinces of Canada. These bits of information do not come as much of a surprise to me, as it is very beautiful here and I can see why people would work hard to preserve their natural environment!
