Think Green. Go Green. The Green Issue

The earth’s population is increasing exponentially. Natural resources are finite and are fast being depleted. The effects of global warming are hard to ignore. With the increasing awareness of such problems, more and more people are taking the initiative to “Go Green”. Environmental activities such as recycling, energy saving, reducing pollution, saving water, planting trees...are now being practiced by many individuals and communities all over the world. We all want to contribute to preserve the world we live in…but is all this enough? Companies or business establishments may exert most of their efforts on gaining profit but a lot of them are still concerned about leaving the future generation with a higher quality of life. Businesses change how they operate and are assisted by communities or organizations to have the right tools and the right knowledge to help protect the environment.
