good news | environment | 11/21/2016

An old coworker of mine said something along the words of accepting the bad as well as the good and with his wisdom, I am here to say, learn from the bad and progress towards the good. I came across some positive environmental news as of late and I wanted to share those links with you friends in case you are interested. I am so proud and happy to hear that there is real progress towards real change. Change that will affect all of us and hopefully provide a cleaner, healthier world.

It’s important for us to realize what it means when we disturb the ecosystem and how that greatly affects the living things that rely on it (which is essentially everything, including us). We are all connected. I’m learning that now more than ever.
