Can’t Stop Columbus
Can’t Stop Columbus started a week ago as an impromptu online virtual hack-a-thon to offer support for Columbus, and since they’ve launched a series of projects to make a difference to those affected by COVID-19. Within 48 hours, over 250 people had joined… now it’s up to 700, and has become a model for doing something that makes an impact while we’re stuck at home.

 Vegan Wool
Just because I’m overload with COVID-19 news… this ‘Vegan Wool’ is Made From Desert Plants That Need No Water. I know retail has basically come to a screeching halt, and while the virus may not be good for humanity, hopefully, it will at least do something good for the environment. But when we get rolling again, this company is selling products made from Weganool, that is, vegan wool, bringing us a solution for sustainable clothing that offsets the huge carbon footprint of the apparel industry.
