Creating the ocean

Cities are capable of doing extraordinary things.

For instance, they’re capable of gathering thousands of inspired people together to generate change. If our climate strike in Toronto didn’t show that change starts with people, that we are not alone, and that we can create enormous impact together (like marching 10,000 people to make some noise), then you aren’t seeing the ocean right before your eyes. 

It’s our turn to keep the tide turning by making it our own priority to live cleaner, better lives. 

We start with a question

Sustainability is such a general term that it can be paralyzing when it comes to tackling its issues. Here are some questions we want answers to:

  • What might be the reason why there is such large controversy in proving/disproving climate change?
  • Families have been using the recycling bin and bringing it out to the curb since the 1980’s. If the program has existed for so long, why is there so much confusion and contamination in recycling now?
  • Exactly how dependent is the average Canadian on oil?
  • On a human level, what would it take for us to get the ball rolling to correct the current global climate problem?
  • If the world produces more food than people can consume, where does it all go, and why can’t we simply produce less of one third of it goes to waste?
  • If people already know the environment is important, what holds most of us back from acting on what we preach?

The goal of Double Cow is to open up dialogue and awareness to the everyday person about sustainability, and that starts with asking both big and small questions.
