    Zero Waste Wisdom is one of my favorite web-sites and she is local.  She has a list of books about environmental racism.

    https://www.zerowastewisdom.com/post/books-about-environmental-racism-white-privilege-and-climate-justice

    I am going to select at least one to read.

    As I go through the actions, I may keep posting things.  There is an action about sleeping.  I recently downloaded the CALM app (it's free for one year if you have an AMEX card).  I love it.  I listen to sleep stories and meditations while I drift off to sleep.  I want to start listening to more of the content during the day and not just as I'm falling asleep.

    I found this amazing sustainable lip balm that is minority-owned a few months ago.  We all love it.  I am planning to place another order if anyone wants to order some, please let me know.

    Not only do I love bees, lip balm, and sustainable packaging but my son is name Kobe so this is beyond perfect!

      Rhianne, got your order!  I'll place the order tomorrow.  I can't recall exactly how I found it but it was toward the beginning of this more recent social unrest and I believe from a list of minority-owned businesses to support.

      I am always in need of a sustainable lip balm that is minority-owned! What an awesome company. I'd love to go in on an order with you if it's not too late, I'd purchase one CBD balm and one coconut vanilla balm :) Glad to bring cash or venmo. How did you find out about Kobees? Also, love your sons name!
