Ten Great Ways to Conserve

Conservation: it's what your grandparents did, right?
Well guess what, living better while using less never went out of style. Living sustainably, or being green, it's all the same thing.

Times have changed, and so has a conserver lifestyle. Being a conserver is a great way to save money, live healthier, and enjoy life.  It's not that hard.  In fact, you are already a conserver.  The goal is to become a better conserver. 

Here's our top ten actions:

·         Help Nature

·         Save Water

·         Save Energy

·         Use Green Power

·         Drive Less

·         Eat Smart

·         Waste Less

·         Prevent Pollution

·         Buy Green

·         Live Local





Conservation Leaders

The Beer Store
We've always known The Beer Store is green:

·         they've been reusing and recycling since 1927

·         they are improving energy efficiency across all their 440 stores

·         they support the Conservation Council and We Conserve

Look for the new We Conserve poster at your local Beer Store.

Littering: More Than Meets The Eye
Thu. February 26, 2015 
6:00 pm – 7:30pm
215 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON 

We all know littering is wrong. Then why is there so much of it? And what can be done to reduce its trail? Come be part of an interactive experience unlike any other with litter expert and CCO member, Sheila White. A game to test your littering and recycling knowledge, participatory music that entertains as it educates and Sheila’s presentation on what is being done to fight litter here and around the world will leave you more aware and inspired to help the goal of lowering the overall rate of littering. A presentation suitable for all ages.

We will also explore a profile of litter, littering and litterers, and why we should care. We will debunk some litter myths and carve out effective litter reduction strategies, while establishing total recycling habits. We will discover best world practices and developments and next steps in Ontario.

About Us

Founded in 1952,
The Conservation Council of Ontario is a provincial association of organizations, businesses, municipalities, and individuals working individually and cooperatively to promote and apply conserver values across Ontario.



We believe that, sooner or later, by choice or by crisis, Ontario will be a conserver society.  We prefer sooner, and by choice.



Our members are all leaders in conservation, each according to their expertise and their audience.  Together, we are a strong movement in support of a voluntary transition to a more sustainable future.


If you are not already a member, we invite you to join.

worth to you?
