    Women and Girls Give a Microloan
    Globally, women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men. Why do you think that is?

    Women tend to be the majority nurturers/care-givers in their families (whether due to cultural pressure or natural tendencies)  and this extends to communities as well.

    Purchased and replaced light bulbs. Always trying to think of ways to help our earth.

    I had steak from my aunt's grass-fed cows last night for dinner.

    There are so many things we can do during our day to days that cost us nothing besides getting into the habit. I'm a firm believer in leading by examples even if doing the smallest of actions because in aggregate, these make BIG differences. Bringing your own reusable water bottle, coffee mug, silverware, and to-go containers when eating out and in the office is a huge step you can take. I'm optimistic that decades from now, humans will look back at how we live today and laugh in ridicule of our trashy, disposable lifestyles... If this intrigues you, the best resource I can point towards is the book by Bea Johnson, "Zero Waste Home". She inspires me to live a more minimalistic lifestyle benefitting not only the planet by my mind :)

    Micro turbines can be placed on large structures to take advantage of stronger, steadier breezes. The Eiffel Tower now sports vertical axis turbines that produce electricity for use on site. Where could micro turbines potentially be installed in your city?

    I would love to see microwind used in the DC area! Since there are not a ton of very tall structures, maybe it supports many green roofs/microwind combinations?

    It's the little things, I guess! When I bring in unused water from the gym, I use it to water the plants. I've been trying to recycle everything and hoping that it makes its way to recycle downstream.

    Here in Sweden, the world’s first electrified road just opened. It charges vehicles as they drive, via an electrified groove:
