Our world is the only one we have, and while space travel to Mars is still long away, we can do what we can at home to help save some of our precious resources. It can be easier than you think to make the switch to some earth loving activities. Plus, many of these save you lots of money in the long run and who doesn’t want that?
So, with that in mind Health Squared has created a 60 second quiz to find out whether you’re an Eco Beginner, an Eco Apprentice or an Eco Warrior. No matter what level you’re at you should be proud that you’re doing amazing things, not only for our precious environment, but for your family and your wallet too!
