Refreshing

I enjoy hearing the stories of entrepreneurs finding unique ways to deal with climate change. The tone is “Yes there is a problem, and here is what we are actively doing about it.” It’s a good listen since you are bound to learn something new and feel a little more optimistic about our collective future. Thanks for putting this together, Dylan!
