At this point, we are all aware that some parts of our day-to-day life will eventually harm the environment. Flights abroad, plastic bottles, disposable coffee cups, the electronic waste we leave behind so we can buy the latest phone – the list goes on.
But 2020 changed things.
Suddenly, we found ourselves spending most of our time at home. We are not commuting, we are not buying a coffee on our way to the office, we are not purchasing plastic packaged meal deals for lunch, we are not flying for weekends abroad.
And it turns out that these changes of behaviour could be having a minor positive impact on our environment, with some cities reporting cleaner air and clearer skies.
