Meet the Proulx-Coll household
This very energetic and outdoorsy “wolf pack” enjoys many outdoor adventures, including camping, fishing, hiking, paddle-boarding, canoeing, kayaking, surfing, bouldering, and mountain biking. (Whew, just reading that list is exhausting.)
Keep up to date on the Proulx-Colls' journey to Live Net Zero on social media.
Follow them on their quest to live a net zero life.
Steps already taken towards a lower-carbon lifestyle
- As early adopters, bought an EV in 2015, which with Québec having close to 98% renewable electricity means their commute is very low in emissions
- Replaced their oil furnace with an electric furnace
- Rarely use their dryer, using an outdoor clothesline in the summer and indoor racks in the winter.
- Something that Oli is very proud of – that he had nothing to do with – is that their kids now have access to an electric school bus to get to school!
