Bullfrog Power is a Canadian green energy retailer that offers its customers power from renewable energy sources, such as wind, low-impact hydro and green natural gas.
Bullfrog only sources electricity from generation sources that meet or exceed the federal government’s Environmental Choice Program EcoLogo standard for renewable electricity.
When you sign-up to Bullfrog, you’re not switching Hydro providers, and you’re not installing any equipment on your property.
Instead you’re simply agreeing to pay Bullfrog a small amount each month based on the size of your home or business. Bullfrog then uses that money to generate enough green energy which it pumps back into the power-grid to offset your usage.
Anyone can sign-up. There’s no complicated contracts and it only takes about 5 minutes to register. You can learn more at the Bullfrog website.
Bullfrog’s goal is to essentially replace all (or most) fossil fuel energy providers with sustainable alternatives, and it’s achieving that goal through grass-root funding from companies and individuals that are able to help pitch in a little more each month.
Here’s a short video explaining how it works.
We also offset our air travel emissions
Air travel is a wonderful benefit of modern life — but we all know it creates harmful emissions.
While we don’t travel often for business, when we do (and when we travel for pleasure – also infrequently), we take the extra step to mitigate travel emissions and lessen our environmental footprint by purchasing carbon offset credits from Less – a Bullfrog company.
The cost to purchase offset credits on a round-trip flight for 2 from Toronto to Los Angeles is only and extra $42 per person – only a little more than the cost of an extra checked bag.
We’re all on this planet together
Making small responsible choices (within your means) is the least we can do to help ensure we can all enjoy sharing it together for a very long time to come.
