City’s Live Green Toronto website gets refreshed
  
The City of Toronto today unveiled its new and improved Live Green Toronto website in honour of the upcoming Earth Day (April 22). The new site - at livegreentoronto.ca - offers tips, tools and resources to help Torontonians live green and take action on climate change.

The new site is divided into easy-to-navigate sections spanning topics from how to green your life and neighbourhood to ways to get involved in your community, and the people and organizations that are making a difference. The site also features two new sections - one for businesses and one for kids, which is aimed at empowering Toronto’s youngest environmentalists to take action at home and at school.

Livegreentoronto.ca (http://www.livegreentoronto.ca) also offers increased functionality with the option to view the site in one of 52 languages or to increase the font size.

“We are incredibly proud of our new website,” says Toronto Mayor David Miller. “Torontonians have told us time and time again that they care about the environment and want to make a difference. Hopefully this new website will provide the tools to help make this happen, and will encourage everyone to take action today to make Toronto the greenest and most sustainable city in the world.”

Visitors to the new website can get advice on ways to live green with resources such as the City of Toronto’s new Live Green Toronto video series. The “how to” library offers practical, step-by-step instructions on how to start a community garden, ways to make your home, apartment building or condo more energy efficient, and much more.

Livegreentoronto.ca also offers expanded information about the many grants, rebates and incentives to help Torontonians conserve energy and water, green their transportation, or bring their great green idea to life.

The site also covers the many ways people can get involved in the community with details about green events in Toronto, and how to become a Live Green Toronto volunteer or connect with a local Community Animator.

Residents and businesses can also sign up for the Live Green Toronto membership card and the City’s new electronic newsletter.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto's government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents. For information about non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
