β€œEvery time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for what kind of world you want.” Read this quote (though I’d seen it before) last week and posted it on another sub, but thought it’d be good to repost here.

Question: What sites, or universities, or countries are doing the best innovation for sustainability?
