Green Living Magazine Challenges Canadians to Take a Stand and Become Greener Citizens

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2009) - It doesn't matter how much time you have to give, there are things every Canadian can do to take a stand and become a greener citizen. The fall issue of Green Living, available today, provides short-, medium- and long-term suggestions whether you're able to make time daily, monthly or annually.

"Canadians want to do more for the environment than the proverbial 'changing of lightbulbs,' " says Lindsay Borthwick, editor of Green Living magazine and greenlivingonline.com. "The goal of this issue was to show them how. From voting to volunteering, leading by example to making climate change art, we've showcased the numerous ways to help individuals, families and communities work toward significant environment change."

Highlights in the fall issue include:

- Dear Future Prime Minister, which lays out the biggest environmental challenges Canada faces, how our government can work to solve them and what voters can do to help.

- In Made in Canada, we showcase more than 25 green ideas and icons that Canadians can be proud of. You'll be surprised by some of the amazing innovations that have spread around the globe that originated right here in Canada.

- In this issue's profile, environmental artist and activist Franke James uses her creativity to affect change in her community and to communicate the crisis of climate change.

Green Living magazine is distributed nationally in select cites via The Globe and Mail. The digital edition of the magazine is available for free at http://magazine.greenlivingonline.com/greenliving/2009fall/
