Celebrating International Compost Awareness Week

Let’s Celebrate International Compost Awareness Week!

Did you know that food leftovers and garden waste together make up 30% of our waste? We can easily turn this common waste into compost.

To make the SDGs more digestible, effective, and appealing, we propose condensing them into 6 Groups. By having the same amount of goals, but with manageable categorization, it will be easier to communicate specific visions of what needs to be done and how to do it.

Celebrating the Lives of International Female Environmentalists

We are grateful for their contributions.

Sometimes we believe that the actions of a few can not possibly impact entire communities or generations. We are honored and grateful to share the stories of women who directly and indirectly impacted the lives of people within their own communities with rippling effects felt around the world.
