Our Earth Foundation (Fundacja Nasza Ziemia)

 

Slawomir Brzozek
Vice-President
of the Our Earth Foundation



It is nice when our job is at the same
time our passion. But my work for the
Our Earth Foundation, things I am
able to do thanks to the Foundation
and through the Foundation, are
much more than just passion for me.
When I saw my newly born son
I realized that Igive him nothing
but the best. And so how can
I give up and let others pollute
the environment?
