One of the things that really impressed me about Canada was all the green initiatives. Our hotel room had a recycling bin and nearly all public trashcans had recycling and/or composting options. To facilitate getting around in an eco-friendly way, Montreal had abundant public bike rentals and Quebec City had an electric bus service around Old Town that anyone could ride for free. In one public restroom I used, the motion sensor sink faucet had a tiny solar panel on top. I hope all of these ideas get implemented in my area soon.
