Earth’s General Store encourage everyone to come out to the rally today at 2pm to send a loud and clear message – we want effective and immediate action taken on Climate Change.
There are many big and little actions that contribute to Climate Change. The purpose of this blog post is to talk about one of the ‘little’ actions – idling our vehicles.
