Where is the planets PPE?

Author: Steve Groom Today, wearing plastic gloves and masks whenever we leave the house and using bottles of hand sanitiser regularly has become totally normal. But at what cost? We are painfully aware that the planet is suffering under the human use of natural resources and the waste that we dump on our land and in our oceans – when it was announced that microplastic ingested by fish was recorded all over the world, it confirmed that we’d finally abused the entire span of our oceans. It seemed that the amount of plastic waste had finally pricked our climate consciousness. We saw marches and protests, and global conferences and governmental commitments in response, and then – Coronavirus hit. The human race was forced to face one of the most serious pandemics of modern times. Our primary instinct to survive kicked in … View Case Study

Author: Sam Nunn Fast-forward to 6 months or even 1 year from now… what do you think the “new norm” will be? This is the question on many people’s minds right now as we continue to wonder how we will get back to Business as Usual – and what that even looks like when we get there. Since COVID-19 has been spreading around the world, governments and businesses have seen an exponential change in how decisions are made and put into effect. Some decisions, prior to the pandemic, took months if not years to become reality – and the train has well and truly left the station for many, but has this set a good or bad precedent for things to come in the years ahead?

What the hell is going on?

Author: Steve Groom These are unfamiliar times. We’ve been forced into social isolation and suddenly have all this spare time thrust upon us as we forsake going out, sports, and other leisure activities.

Like Bird Flu and SARs before, unfortunately there will probably be another.
