  • Took 100% of our electricity from our rooftop solar panels.
  • Worked at the Utah Food Bank.
  • With a bake sale/brunch, raised $500 for No Kid Hungry.
  • Sponsored the education of a 9-year-old Nepali boy for the next three years.
  • Sold certified organic, fair-trade coffee to support a Mexican farmers cooperative.
  • Marched in the Salt Lake City Pride Parade.
