The Climate Countdown

The Climate Countdown Episode 9. Bee the Change Shownotes:

7 years, 281 days, 18 hours, and 30 minutes to save the planet.

The Climate Countdown is a weekly podcast hosted by uni student Madeleine Wright. Hi, that’s me.

I know without action climate change is happening. The only hope, a drastic change from large companies and government – but also from everyday people. People like you and me.

Each week on the Climate Countdown I explore one change I am making in my own life to become more sustainable. This week we are looking at saving the bees – what’s going on, and what you can do to help.

Please look at the links referenced in the episode below.

Remember, make each minute a decision to be kinder to the environment.
