As the end of the year draws nigh, we figured it would be an apt time to take a look back at 2019 and its quite monumental impact on the awareness of the environmental destruction going on around us.
Greta Thunberg was named Time’s Person of the Year for having brought the aforementioned environmental awareness to greater prominence, and for lobbying politicians, companies and governments to step up their environmental commitments.
Greta started the movement ‘Fridays for Future’, which in turn led to this series of blog posts – Recipes for Future is our way doing our bit, too. Naturally, we hope it encourages others to make some small changes, as well.
She was also responsible for inspiring global mass demonstrations for ecological concerns in September, like the one pictured above in Hamburg, Germany.
