Have you ever wondered how to improve the present and the future in an incredible way? It sounds like a lot of work, but in fact it’s easier that you thought. As everyday citizens, we can really make a difference.
The BCSEA Kamloops Chapter has organized an inspiring exposition about the people in and around Kamloops, who have reduced their footprint substantially with the use of alternative energy.
The presentation includes visual and audio material about many of these people and what they do. For example, Daniela Ginta shows us how to cook without electricity using a Wonderbag, and she uses reusable bags instead of plastic. Personally, I found interesting the way the Wonderbag is used for cooking and how this bag creates a positive social and environmental impact with the donation of one Wonderbag to a needy family in Africa for every bag purchased.
Other people in Kamloops, such as Nancy Bepple, use solar panels on the roof of a house in order to generate energy and reduce the electricity bill as much as possible. Some Sustainable Energy Superheroes drive hybrid or plug-in electric cars which reduce the fossil fuel habit; others would rather ride their bicycles to reduce their emissions.
In my personal opinion the exposition provides every visitor with a whole range of different options regarding what a person can do to reduce impact on the environment. You’ll see how you can take action on a daily basis.
A must-see: this exposition can be enjoyed at any time during its duration, but it’s an excellent plan to bring along a cup of coffee on a cold weekend afternoon.
Why: it will inspire and provide knowledge to transition to more eco-friendly energy use!
What you’ll see at the exposition:
- How to use the energy of the wind to dry out your clothes
- How to save energy while you cook
- How to reduce emissions in your everyday commuting
- Short interviews made by citizens about eco-energy
- Eco friendly vehicles
- How “Conscious Actions Promote Positive Reactions” [Brianna Powrie]
