But, even when we get back to the 'old normal', we have to remember to treat Mother Nature with respect. Let's collectively learn to take the initiative without being told to do so. Even if you can't personally plant trees, be involved in conversations that need voices to amplify the message.

They say small acts multiplied by millions of people will make a difference ❤️? THE CLIMATE IS CHANGING, WHEN WILL WE?"
