Storms and glacial cold, heat waves and catastrophic fires, and an average temperature constantly rising. Climate change is increasingly causing extreme phenomena and endangering human survival itself. The time to study and debate solutions is over, it's definitely time to change.
A web series that highlights families with inspirational sustainable practices
Maria Cordoeiro was still a child when she began her fight against plastic. Today, married and mother of five children, she shares this urgency of saving the planet with the whole family. They live in a house in central Lisbon, where they have a small vegetable garden, from which they get most of the vegetables and fruit they consume. The composting that they practice allows them to have a more fertile land which gives them hundreds of tomatoes, lettuces, spinach, radishes every year. They make customized clothing from the fabrics they no longer wear. And packaging gets a second life by supporting the art of her husband, Francisco Moreira. Come and meet this family and get inspired. There are many small gestures that make a difference. And these can be within everyone's reach. Do you accept the challenge?
