WHO WE ARE

 

GentleWays for OurPlanet’s mission is to make it easy for individuals and communities to take pro-environmental action with accessible, fun and easy to use tools. We support three goals: enabling individuals reduce their carbon footprint by 50% over the next decade, increasing the consumption of plant-based products, and planting trees. One of our tools is a mobile app, the i4ThePlanet, that makes it easy for individuals to start living more sustainably. Since the launch of the app, we have contributed around three hundred trees in Ottawa. We have also begun over the past year working more closely with cultural groups in Ottawa, so climate action is more inclusive and more empowering to all communities.
