It is not enough to claim to care about the environment! 😏
Action needs to be taken to back those words. 💪🏽But knowledge of what to do is also very important. GreenWithGrin does its best to enlighten us about environmental crises and solutions, but what have we done to boost our sustainability literacy on our own?
