The Ripple Effect You Have
For the final episode of 2020 and the season finale of Book of Leaves, I asked people for stories of a ripple effect they witnessed. Times when people told you that you inspired them to ditch plastic toothbrushes or the other way around, when you were inspired by someone else!Thank you to Vasco, Mark, Conor, Mies, Gerda, Sophie, Elaine, Lucrezia, Katy and Cecilia for sharing your stories! If you have a ripple effect moment, send it to me at email@example.com or on Instagram or Facebook. I'll most likely do another one of these in the future, but for now, thank you for listening and I can't wait to bring you more leaves to add to your book in 2021.
