With March bringing us Spring, we open the door to welcome April and the spirit of green things that brings Earth Day. Since 1970, this annual event has been celebrated on the 22nd day of this month to show and demonstrate the support for environmental protection. For this reason, we wanted to contribute to the spirit of preserving the environment and to remind everyone how lucky we are to be witnessing nature every day. For this reason, we've put together a list of projects worth doing to honor this event!
