Meet the Foremans
This family of five loves to be active and out in nature. (And if they are outside they are consuming less household electricity.) Some their favourite activities include biking, running, cross country skiing, soccer. Father, Shane, has taken up gardening and extending the growing season with a greenhouse while their son, Alex, is designing solutions to improve the process.
The Foremans understand the importance of addressing carbon emissions at the individual level since, though just one drop in the bucket, many drops will fill it.
