Sustainability and our planet: ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
“It has been way overdue for our industry and ourselves to start giving back to our earth. As a native Brazilian, I have always been drawn to our rich fauna and flora, it’s sad to think our future generations may not get to see our beautiful animals and our beautiful planet. It’s our job to show our children how to make changes, even if they are small ones in order to reduce the impact in our environment so together we can move forward to a more sustainable future.” ⁣
