    Nice video. Great idea to do this project.
    The question at the end is very pertinent. Makes me think especially about what are we doing about climate breakdown. Some Friends (old and young) are currently engaging in civil disobedience (eg with Extinction Rebellion) because of the lies and inaction on this subject. Our Earth is on fire ! Recycling our plastic containers etc is no longer enough if we are to prevent the worst effects ; we need to change our habits in a big way – it is no longer ok to fly regularly or to eat lots of beef, especially if it’s fed on soy beans from what was the Amazon rainforest. Yes, Love and Truth can be uncomfortable. They were in the 17th century and they still are today.
