You might not think that the spare change jingling in your pocket can benefit the environment, but ‘Change for the Environment’ would love to prove you wrong. This three-day Canadian initiative in Toronto and Quinte asks residents to donate their spare change at the donation points; every bit of it will be spent on the environment.

According to ‘Change for the Environment,’ it doesn’t take much to make a real difference: Just 5 loonies will buy a tree, which enables 2 people to breathe clean air for a lifetime.
