It’s Mothers Day so we decided that we wanted to pay tribute to the one of the raddest momma’s to ever exist – Mother Nature. It seems as though right now we’re the snotty teenage kid who calls their mum a haggard old trollop in JD Sport because she won’t get us another pair of Air Max 97’s. We gotta start treating our Ma with the respect and care that she deserves.

Climate change is one of the hottest (haha) topics of conversation at the moment, and if you don’t believe in it then we implore you to stop reading this now. Who are we kidding, if you have the same scientific views as that piss stain Donald Tr*mp you probably can’t read.
Realistically, we know things have to change on a macro level to make the kind of difference that we need, but that’s not to say that we, as individuals, can’t make a difference within our own microcosm. We all as humans have a responsibility to be environmentally aware, but more so as people who enjoy snowboarding – the hint is in the name, we kind of rely on the presence of snow. We’re not saying ‘stop going snowboarding you planet killing toad’, we’re saying ‘be mindful and conscientious when you’re snowboarding please’. And as much as conscious consumption can be a slight neoliberal copout it’s all we’ve got right now so suck it up.
There’s a bunch of really simple things that we can all do to start being better pals to Mother Nature, and yeah they probably all seem super obvious, but we don’t seem to be doing them… So this is a proverbial kick up the arse for all of us to pull the metaphorical finger out.
