Talk about quick results: since Matthew Bravo at Entusi met Robert Sabimana in Kabale just last week, they have already installed a composting shower at the resort on Lake Bunyoni with the help of trip participant Gretchen Fillmore. Specifically, a compost pile was constructed to surround a 100-gallon drum filled with water that will be heated from the energy of microbes, which will then provide hot water for showers. Said Matthew, "By morning, we will have hot water and in a month-and-a-half, we will have some beautiful soil in our gardens!"

- On October 1, concerned members of the University of Colorado commun...ity will be calling President Benson and asking him to divest the university's endowment from the Top 200 Fossil Fuel companies. Can you join us? Fossil fuels are a top driver of climate change pollution and right now universities have invested their endowments in the fossil fuel industry. We find it contradictory that the university promotes critical thinking and sustainability while investing in these destructive companies. Join us in calling President Benson on Wednesday, October 1!
