✨New Year’s Eve✨ is coming! And usually that happens with a big loud BANG!

We’re so used to having fireworks and firecrackers as part of our celebrations. And I have to admit that fireworks in particular can be absolutely stunning. (Things that are just loud, but not even pretty I never understood…) 🧨

But we rarely stop and think that all this noise can be extremely harmful to both the wild animals and our beloved pets alike. Anyone who lives with an animal has seen first hand the complete terror in their eyes. 🙀

On top of that fireworks pollute the air immensely and have a massive carbon footprint.

So just because we’ve been doing something for a long time, doesn’t mean it’s the best possible way. I’m so proud of my country, because this year, thanks to public pressure, a few big cities in Bulgaria decided to skip the fireworks and donate the money to good causes instead. Isn’t that inspiring? 😊
