Putting a Spotlight on Climate Change.
Spreading knowledge on the impact of climate change is no longer just a job for environmental experts and politicians, but a responsibility for every person on earth – the ‘rich and famous’ notwithstanding!
This is because climate change is a reality and the signs are evident: extremities in temperature and weather patterns, droughts, melting glaciers, and warmer oceans. Research indicates that, of the different factors contributing to climate change, the surplus release of carbon dioxide is one of the major culprits that’s leading to an off-balance of the planet’s ecosystem.

From giving financial support to environmental initiatives to participating in awareness campaigns, these celebrities are inspiring people to be more eco-friendly.
