Food

To Cut Food Waste, Spain’s Solidarity Fridge Supplies Endless Leftovers.
I need this to be a thing I can contribute to, pronto. I always cook far, far too much. And I really hate food waste.


Beer

Waste Not, Want Not: 5 Ways Breweries Recycle Their Waste
I am endlessly fascinated by learning about what different breweries do in dealing with their waste streams. I think because it’s all such simple waste (water, grain, etc), and thus something I can see potential in and have some clue about how to reuse it. And probably because I know there’s some amazing potential for goodies in there.


Science

Building standards aren’t to blame for chilly offices
So what is? Because, at this point, we’ve all ready about how it’s sexism in building standards. (Spoiler: look toward the thermostat.)


Blather

Boars Everywhere: Climate Change is Boosting Wild Pig Populations
I picked this one because there’s an adorable piglet picture and my friend Rosminah would appreciate the knowledge. Also, because wild boars are an ENORMOUS problem, really, and we’re struggling to figure out what to do about that.

Announcing The Session: The Hard Stuff
Normally I’d reach further back into the archives for this, but I really want to see a lot of writing out there, so I figured it’s worth reminding people that the session is happening. Have a post up on your blog on or before 4 September 2015, and I will collect all the links here.

Related, if you have something you’d like to contribute to the session, but do not have your own online space for it, please feel free to let me know. I am happy to host many things here for this month’s Session.
