Green Blog Round Up - March and April 2020



Each month I put together a post with some of green themed blogs I have come across over the preceding month. I didn't do a March roundup as things all got a bit weird with lockdowns being put in place across the globe and I'll admit my blogging MoJo left home. But it's back now and you'll find below my round up of some of the blogs I have come across in March and April.

I also want to send you this message:

We are on the brink.

Covid-19 has allowed us to see the type of world that is possible if if we pull ourselves back. Now we have been given a glimpse into a different future, what is being coined a "New Normal", we cannot let this go. So please, read these blog posts that all share a common green theme and then spread their messages far and wide. Tell your friends, add them to your social media and above all act on the messages they contain.
