    I love being that guy with fun facts that he bothers his friends with. All this research is just more tidbits to share with my friends.

    external shades, vines, trees, and awning are all great ways to keep the solar heat from getting in to a building, without using electricity. These are hard to build when you rent a room in an apartment complex like I do, but another interesting idea I found was to cook hot food outside! The summer is coming up and it's a great time to BBQ and instead of an oven heating up your apartment you keep that heat out so you stay cool indoors.
    Materials Properly Dispose of Refrigerants
    How do you address your own feelings of concern, fear or despair about climate change?

    I chose to work for a company that cares about reducing our impact on climate change and that brings me some piece of mind that my decisions are hopefully helping bring positive change to this matter.

    It's the last day of the challenge but I'm definitely going to keep thinking about these ways I've learned to implement drawdown solutions in my every day life.

    I definitely won't freak out about yogurt as much. And another important lesson is just proper food storage. Using your freezer can really help if you're worried you won't use food in time.
    Food Learn More about Regenerative Agriculture
    Clean air, clean water and healthy food are three reasons to care about regenerative agriculture. In what ways can you support your closest regenerative agriculture farm?

    Using natural ecological cycles just makes sense to preserve natural resources. I will be an advocate for farms to reject simplicity and mass production of a single crop for more diverse and smarter farming.

    It sucks that beef has such a huge impact on climate change because steak is so tasty! But reducing beef consumption for other meat options like poultry and pork is a small step I could take. And reminding my friends of the effect will probably do a lot of good as well!

    Today I received a response from a contacted official. It is great to hear that people are so easy to reach in the digital age.

    What are some of the barriers that exist to women's equal participation and/or representation in your community?

    In an office that is about 3/4 men, I can see how the industry and socialization perpetuates the under representation of women in certain fields. Theoretically leveling a playing field is not enough to ensure equality across all genders, there needs to be active work done to give women more power in workplaces and create environments where women feel comfortable and inspired to join fields that they were previously excluded from. Reparations must be made to make up for the discrimination of the past before equality can be claimed.
    Women and Girls Learn about the Need for Family Planning
    What did you learn about the need for family planning? Share some of the learning with your friends!

    The amount of misinformation and lack of information about family planning is a real concern across the world. Taking full control of their bodies is going to hopefully be one of the earliest social justice accomplishments of the 21st century.
