    It’s really interesting initiative to encourage young people to gain sustainable habits because, as the boy says in one of the videos, “are little people doing big difference.” That is what should be done throughout the world, as are the new generations who must assume the role of caring for the planet and preserve its resources, improving the habits and quality of life.
