Can you cut 1 Tonne of carbon pollution out of your life?Take the challenge
And now for something pretty to brighten up your day.
Trees are a big deal. They are actively keeping our air clean and our planet alive. We aren't always so nice to them. Now, if you're a 1MW follower you probably love trees, and wouldn't cut one down for your own benefit, because, as you can see from below, the benefits of leaving them standing are tenfold.
Feast your eyes on some of the most beautiful trees in the world, and remind yourself (not that you need reminding) of why people should stop cutting so many of these beautiful things down.
