Plant Rich Diet: Eat For Life PRD #4 - A public Facebook page for anyone to post recipes, articles, thoughts, events, recommended reading, or ideas relating to Drawndown Solution 4: Plant Rich Diet. "(PRD#4)" Not necessarily for vegans or vegetarians only, but certainly for those who want to support the increase of plants in their diet and decrease the use of animal products in order to drastically reduce the extremely large carbon footprint animal agriculture produces.
Afforestation: Our 10,000 Trees - A public Facebook page for anyone to post anything at all about the Drawdown Solution supporting Afforestation. Love of trees, inspirational quotes, interesting articles about trees and supporting the life of trees, why trees are important, etc. Chris has established a link /group with the organization One Tree Planted so that people can donate under the "Our 10,000 Trees" group (adding to the grand total working toward 10,000 trees) but anything related to Afforestation is welcomed, whether on an individual level or associated with any organization.
Find even more resources organized by Drawdown solution/topic in our locally-compiled climate action database.
