Welcome back to The Planet You Save, a weekly newsletter on local climate action. I'm Taylor Kate Brown and Merry Christmas to those who celebrate. The days are getting a little longer from here on out.
This week and next, I'll be sharing some good reading around the web on local climate stories. If this is your first newsletter, check out the archive to see what our regularly scheduled editions look like. This newsletter only grows through word of mouth, so thank you to everyone who shares it.
