Our village of Eden Mills is “Going Carbon Neutral”
We are a small Canadian village with an ambitious goal. We are engaging in a grassroots initiative to tackle the urgent issue of a warming planet. We want our children and grandchildren to know that we not only cared but tried to do something.
Therefore we are aiming to become the first village in North America to achieve carbon neutrality. We launched this project on November 7, 2007.
Eden Mills and Ashton Hayes featured on Global News, November 22, 2016
Global’s European office was in the process of interviewing representatives of the English village of Ashton Hayes about going carbon neutral. (Ashton Hayes inspired Eden Mills to launch our going carbon neutral project in 2007.) The Ashton Hayes folks immediately suggested Global contact Eden Mills too! Of course! And so they did.
