Good day. My name is Dafe and I’m a nurse. I am looking to start an eco friendly initiative for an NGO I’m currently working with. The aim of this initiative is to ensure industries or firms adopt an eco friendly means of productions of goods. We want to work on how we can link most industries in Nigeria to join the “Save the Environment” movement and how to prevent harsh weather and climate changes from affecting the country as a whole. Our aim is also to inform the general public on how to reduce most harmful practices that are polluting the environment through health talks and policy implementations. For example plant a tree or stop bush burning.
