Our intention was to do something to help protect the environment.
To do our part.
We started by talking about our experiences trying to be more eco-friendly.
We all made mistakes while trying things, so talking about what worked and what didn't was important.
It took tons of trial and error but the more we talked, the more we saw that together we could make a difference.
Slowly, we created a fun and interactive community where people could ask questions and share their ideas. A community full of like minded people who want to save the world.
Our goal was to spark the motivation in people to take these tips out into the real world. Together we would be the proof that small changes can have huge impacts.
Out of these ideas of raising awareness and collective action, What's Your Impact was born.
What's Your Impact is a registered non-profit organization that is based in Montreal, Canada. Our efforts are concentrated on creating awareness about climate change and how everyone can help fight it.
Since June 2007, What's Your Impact has been teaching people how they can fight climate change with simple everyday actions. Concrete and direct actions that you can take with your own two hands. Not by signing petitions or making donations and hoping for the best.
Over the years, our research expanded to get a better understanding of the causes and effects of climate change. All efforts were supported 100% by our volunteers who would squeeze in research time after work, on weekends or whenever else they could.
Everyone can make a difference and together our small changes will have a huge impact

The power of leaving a better life for both present and future generations is in our hands, right here and right now.
