Bajro, from Slava Raskaj, has made this song for our Zero Waste Project. We would like to share it with all of you and hope you like it.
It's about global warming, the destruction of the planet, how we could change our habits and our lifestyle to save the planet. A really awareness song.
Thanks Bajro and let's save the planet.
