Earth Day will be celebrated around the world on April 22. In Quebec, the tone is more severe than in previous years: “We all take a bit of the blame”. Gone are the days when you could point your finger at just one other country, one company, one neighbour. The conservation of the planet is everyone’s business, all year round. Every day, we take actions that have an impact on the future of the Earth: how we travel, what we eat, how we consume, where we go on vacation, and so on.

But Earth Day is also a time to celebrate the initiatives of companies and individuals that give us hope. Sometimes simple ideas that have major impacts on the environment. In the coming days, we will therefore be offering you inspiring texts. And if you have initiatives to share with us, send them to us by email or on Twitter!
