22nd April marks Earth Day, a time to take a step back and ponder on what we can do to protect and improve the beautiful floating rock that gives so much to us!
This year, the theme is ‘Invest in Our Planet’, which can sound pretty scary. But what if it was actually simpler than it sounds (hint, it is!)? Investing in our planet is sometimes no more than simply investing in sustainable options for ourselves.
