Another week has passed and we're back with the climate updates! This is "Let's balance out" and you'll read one good news and one bad news about the climate crisis. Shall we begin?
So what do you want first? The good news or the bad news?
Sport teams are urged to drop their sponsors from companies that promote high carbon lifestyles or products. More than 250 sponsor agreements worldwide happen between sports groups and high carbon industries. The damage they do is that they normalise lifestyles that are very heavy on the climate.
It would be good to see something so looked-up at as the sports' world to promote things that are good for the climate, not to mention our health.
There are about 3.4 million people around the world using an app designed to encourage people to give away rather than throw away surplus food. There are a lot of apps that help not to waste your food, and to indicate ways to consume what are the leftovers of shops etc that they don't sell.
It's surely the best way to make people aware about the huge issue that is food waste!
