    I could definitely add "Remember" to my daily practice routine, because I find myself sometimes forgetting to recycle plastic bottles, reusing plastic bags, etc.. Another great "R" could be "Reflect", which would help me reflect on what I did each day that could have helped lead us to a more sustainable planet, and...

    I sent a link to calculate the carbon footprint to some of my friends, and I hope to see most, if not all of them calculate it! My family's average carbon footprint is 6.69 tons of CO2 per month, which is 2.69 tons above the average per US household. I am hoping that by the end of this year, my family can reduce our carbon footprint by making...

    Currently, I would say that the most pressing issue for female and LGBTQ+ people in the community is getting the proper hygiene products they require.

    A carbon footprint calculator has calculated that the average footprint within my household is 6.69 tons of CO2e every year. The average U.S. household has an average of 4.00 tons of CO2e per year. I was surprised by this; I think I expected a higher average footprint within the U.S. households, and also a slightly lower average within my...

    Especially during the pandemic, we must all become aware of all the actions we can perform to positively impact our environment. Drawdown Ecochallenge is a great platform to get started, and it really helped me personally by enforcing certain habits when it comes to reducing my carbon footprint. Although I might not check in on the website...
