We have to be deliberate about how we treat our environment- whether its by cycling or planting a few trees. Because when we are gone from this planet, we will be leaving it in the hands of those who come after us. We want to leave them a planet that will be comfortable for them. We want to create environmental legacies that they will imbibe and improve upon.
