50 Ways To Save the Planet Now

Every year, during Earth Hour, or even Earth Day in April, discussions on sustainability and sustainable living permeate the media landscape. At times, it may seem like mere lip service for a problem that seems so insurmountable—the waste produced from almost 8 billion people on the planet, global temperature rise at an alarming rate as seen through the shrinking of ice sheets, glacial retreat, ocean warming, rising sea-levels, plus the number of extreme weather events.
