From July 17, 2010 on we will have to use our reusable / returnable bags everytime we go grocery shopping in Rio de Janeiro. This is the law in our beautiful city. Are we really ready to go green?
Our planet is facing bigger challenges than ever before. Our ancient forests are being chopped down and our oceans recklessly fished out and polluted at a breathtaking pace. Whaling, toxic pollution, dirty coal, dangerous nuclear energy and genetically engineered crops threaten the quality and even sustainability of lives around the planet. Catastrophic climate change looms as governments and industry spend time and resources in hopes of increasing their profits while avoiding the changes necessary to curb carbon emissions. What can you do to help?
