As we deal with the Covid coronavirus lockdown, lots of us are working from home. To keep in touch with our colleagues, many of us are spending a lot of time on Zoom meetings as a result.

It’s challenging in lots of ways, but one thing that can be a bit awkward is the clothes rack of underwear in the background, or the old Duran Duran poster adorning the bedroom wall.

One trick to make your video calls more interesting and to block out any unwanted indoor scenes from your makeshift home office is custom Zoom backgrounds!

Here’s some images from the Greenpeace photo library which you can use to pimp your Zoom. Enjoy!
