Surely you will be aware that the planet is in trouble, thanks to the “success” of the human species. And you will also know that after exterminating dozens of species of animals and plants and deteriorating the conditions of the planet, the risk is now for the human being. Much of the damage is due to industrial activity. However, we can always do something to help the planet (and ourselves).
These are some solutions that the industry has found, options that you can start implementing if you have the opportunity.
