Did you know that just one elevator uses about the same amount of energy annually as seven homes? Choosing to take the stairs instead of the elevator is a win-win... this simple action not only minimizes your personal impact on the environment, but is also great for your health.
Next time you're on the move in a multi-story building, try taking the stairs!
Climbing stairs burns up to 10 times more calories than standing in an elevator. Please visit the Public Health Agency of Canada's "Stairway to Health" page to determine how many calories you burn by using the stairs.
