  1. This amazing and creative! We all should help lessen things that affects the climate. I found a website, http://www.motleygreen.com that helps me keep track of my environmental acts and gives me a list of all the activities that will help the environment. You can share stories there too.

  2. Muito boa a iniciativa de Salomon, é um parceiro nosso no Projeto Amazônia & Cia – que promove o empoderamento de mulheres amazônicas através do manejo dos recursos residuais da floresta. Transformar resíduos do bioma em arte, com beleza e estilo é, sem dúvida um dos ramos da economia criativa que apresenta maior potencial para o desenvolvimento sustentável.
