Caring for our Earth has never been more important or urgent. In the last few years many of us have experienced the impacts of climate change. Disasters such as drought, flood and fire have featured local, nationally and globally. Climate change needs to be managed by the government, however individuals can also make changes in their day to day approach to life that will help make a difference. With the proper approach and care it is possible to maintain or return our Earth to a better state than we currently find it in.
