For Earth Day 2019, join MEC to explore the everyday ways you can lead a more sustainable lifestyle and become a responsible steward of our earth. From the cars we drive, to the resources we use in our homes and gardens, to the food we eat – living sustainably is truly about making thoughtful choices in our daily lives. And MEC would like to showcase just how easy (and cheap) it can be!
