The environment is probably at the top of everyone’s concern these days, what with fires ‘breaking out’ in the lungs of the Earth, plastic filling the ocean faster than ever before and the increase of traffic, congestion and combustible fumes filling our stratosphere to a rather disgusting percent - it’s no wonder most of the population is turning to eco-happy solutions.
There are so many ways in which we can safeguard the environment and help to build a better future together. From community clean ups to full on meat reduction tactics, there are so many ways to make your mark and go that little bit greener.
