Educating children and young people about the importance of protecting the environment is very important for the future of our planet,” said Bree Hollinsworth, co-founder of Ungalli. “Creating change doesn’t happen with just one person, it has to involve everyone. By fostering lasting habits early on, those habits are more likely to stick as children grow.
