    I recently took a permaculture class and water collection was a hot topic. I've been watching how the water flows in my yard and selected my garden bed locations this year based on natural depressions that will require less watering.

    Central midwest region shows 60% !!! still coming from coal. I had no idea. Definitely motivation for solar and to look at other utility offerings in the area.

    I love how impact investing creates opportunities for financial gain while supporting sustainable efforts. It doesn't have to be (and shouldn't be) solely driven by philanthropic funding.
