    I built houses for Habitat for Humanity. More recently, I have loved getting my son involved in volunteering. I would like to start volunteering to help with composting in the neighborhood.

    Women and girls are impacted greatly in many categories. We need to work to achieve more inclusive societies worldwide and it seems like we are back sliding in many ways in the US.

    For these, it seems those that have access to electricity and many things are the worst offenders. As with all of these , there is uneven impact and access.

    Humans need to change our ways before it is too late. The planet is in crisis and we (governments and people) are unwilling to make the changes we need.

    What surprised you about the two produce lists? How will you use these lists for your grocery shopping? Have you used these lists before?

    Many of the produce I purchase regularly was on the dirty dozen list. I think I will buy more cautiously moving forward. I have never used the lists before.
