Climate change can seem such a global and big problem that any personal effort would be unnoticed. But this couldn´t be further from the truth.
In fact there are many things all of us can do to help the environment. It begins understanding the environmental impact of our current lifestyle.
For example, a good starting point would be to know the sources where the energy we use comes from. Is it renewable or not? If it is not, we are seriously contributing on increasing greenhouse gas emissions.
Times of change have arrived, but how can we change things?
