Climate

We can all agree that the climate has changed from what we remember it to be even 10 years ago. It’s important for us humans to be informed of our effects on Earth. After all, we are not the only generation reaping the benefits of this beautiful planet. We must be GREEN! Which means recycling, walking and biking more, reusing items and other non-pollutant tasks.
