I had already known a bit about David Suzuki because my parents and I are fans and support him and his beliefs. But, there were things I didn't know, like his background story and what he went through. Plus, on the DSF website I found tons of small things we could do to make our homes more ecologically friendly so in the future I will certainly use some of them.
