environmental awareness

this idea Arrived at the birth of her second childThe last year.

When Elliott was born, I read a draft of the IPCC report. “Life on Earth as we know it will inevitably be altered by climate change when children born in 2021 reach the age of 30, or even earlier,” he said. I immediately thought of my son and told myself that I should act.

local second hand

with two childrenMartin Le Tellier The challenge of dressing them up Every day they are growing up. So think of the second hand. “It does exist, but the clothes are not.

Martin Le Tellier certainly committed to this activity after reflection and some research: “I learned that, on average, a child wears 300 clothes During that The first three years.
