It’s no secret that there’s a growing focus on climate change and the role we all play in it. With record-high temperatures being recorded across land and sea, and carbon dioxide levels from human activities increasing at an exponential rate, it’s never been more important to take action and search for eco-friendly solutions before it’s too late.
