Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities. It is an initiative of the Plastic Free Foundation, a foundation working towards a vision of a world free of plastic waste.

Father's Day: Dad the Footsteps to Follow

Father’s Day: Dad the Footsteps to Follow

 

Nothing comes close to the role that dads play in our lives. Dads are mentors, protectors, providers, coaches, and many other kinds of superheroes. Dads are role models and forces that guide us through life. Sons and daughters quietly pay attention to what dads do and grow to follow in their footsteps, and many parents are delighted and honoured when their children seek to emulate them.

The Youth of 2020: What Youth Day Means to Us
