Every Day Eco-Heroes: Melina Laboucan-Massimo

Happy Earth Day! As we began preparing to celebrate today, we created our Every Day Eco-Heroes series in collaboration with Earth Day Canada, which shines a spotlight on Canadian environmental activists who make every day Earth Day.

The Nature Force

When thinking about the future, unfortunately, it is impossible to think of one that does not involve climate change.
