    Ecosystems are under tremendous pressure due to unsustainable human activities and if we don’t act now to move towards sustainable development, zero waste and eco friendly living, we may have to pay the consequences sooner than we think.

    Nourishing Food Donate Food
    Why do you donate food? How does it connect to your values?

    Donation of surplus food can eliminate the methane emissions produced by rotting food. The reduced volume of food in landfills also helps combat climate change by reducing the greenhouse emissions associated with food waste.

    Teens spend a lot of time in front of screens. But too much media use can interfere with getting enough exercise, doing homework, being with friends, and spending time with family.
