think planet. live local.
thegreenrock.ca ~ habits for your habitat launched in 2008. with the tagline ‘think planet. live local’ thegreenrock.ca talked about ‘habits for your habitat’ – things we can all do to live more sustainably where we live. it was about connecting people to others, to community, to planet, and to themselves.
thegreenrock envisions Newfoundland and Labrador as the community leading the western world in sustainable living.
through information, education, and inspiration, thegreenrock promotes ‘where you are’ choices to help address challenges facing the planet, our communities, and our individual lives. thegreenrock nurtures relationships with like-minded groups, organizations and businesses to increase our collective capacity to attain objectives.
