Nature always wins. The Earth will experience seismic activity, volcanic activity, pandemics and cyclical changes in climate that will affect our lives in some way. There’s no disputing this, so how can we be ready to keep our families and loved ones safer and more resilient to the weather? How can we work with the knowledge we have on sea-level rise, the frequency of flooding and storms, global population growth, energy use, infrastructure status, water resources and food security?
In an age of smartphones, tablets and YouTube, modern kids have fewer interactions with the natural world. At TD, we believe in the value of green experiences for children. Since 2000, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation has been providing grants to schools across Canada to build “outdoor classrooms” – spaces within school grounds that allow teachers and students to integrate nature into learning.

Sure, they’re 100 percent recyclable (and accepted by most curbside programs), but instead of putting them in the recycling bin, why not find a good way to reuse or repurpose them? Those bright colors, that glossy paper, that gorgeous photography can likely find new life in a project or a craft. Old copies might even be new reading material to someone.
