⛱ At the beach, in the mountains 🗻, in the countryside, in nature 🌳, and also on a city trip 🏙we are all about to enjoy summer.

So during this summer period, let’s remain vigilant and always take care of our ecosystems : limit your waste, sort your packaging, don’t throw your cigarette butts on the ground 🚬, collect the waste that hangs on the ground and put it in a garbage can.🗑
