Environmental Action Committee

The Montreal West Environmental Action Committee is a standing advisory committee of Council. It is invested in making the town a more sustainable and environmentally friendly community. The committee was set up with the understanding that towns and citizens need to come together in order to work as responsible actors in lieu of the rapid decline of our global ecology. Through education, action, and policy change, it is committed to making Montreal West a greener neighbourhood. Some of the specific issues dealt with by the committee include: waste management, recycling, composting, pesticide use, energy conservation, and Meadowbrook preservation.

Benefits of trees

Trees are invaluable for carbon dioxide absorption. That’s why protecting our tree cover is so important in today’s context of climate change. Trees, however, have a variety of other benefits:

  • Sequestering of air pollutants
  • Energy conservation (shading, wind breaks)
  • Storm-water attenuation
  • Noise buffering
  • Improved property value
  • Improved mental and physical health
