SPRING – SO FRESH AND INVIGORATING…
Spring is in the air in most of the Northern Hemisphere and in the South the beautiful colours of Autumn leaves are seen in the parks, forests and lining the streets of cities. Regardless of where you are, change of season focuses the body to prepare for the upcoming summer/winter. It is an important time for all of us as our crops are planted/harvested, the success/failure of a good season will determine the mood of the population for the rest of the year. Infact, a bad harvest/planting season in many parts of the world, leads to higher food prices and is known to cause riots, protests and even toppled governments.
However, this fragile balance is governed by the climate and weather conditions, including the ocean currents. The warming of our planet is beginning to disrupt this natural cycle, leading to extreme weather events, which has a direct impact on the planting/harvests and production of food.
As we move into Spring/Autumn, it is a good time to reflect on what we can individually do to reduce our impact on the climate. In our blog this month, the team of envoPAP have put together some measures that they have taken to reduce their impact, whilst also saving money. Good for the planet, good for the pocket. Let us know on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram what changes you are making – perhaps we can all benefit from it.
