Good afternoon you all. After a short Easter break, I have time to send out the latest MEMO. I am also working on new content for the Better Human premium subscribers. Before we start, I am sharing an initiative that I am very fond of. Klima is an app that helps you calculate your carbon footprint and then offers you the option to offset your produced carbon.
