Hello fellow world-savers, and welcome back to one5c. (You might notice that this email isn’t coming from Substack, but don’t worry, it’s still us.) We’re smack in the middle of October, which means leaves have started to drop in parts of the U.S. and mountains of swept-up foliage are tempting pile-jumping kiddos and doggos everywhere. Knowing full well that the American obsession with lawn upkeep is frustratingly misguided from a saving-the-planet POV, we’re digging into what reprogramming our grass-tending brains means for leaf removal.
And, because winter is coming, we’re keeping an eye on moves toward better efficiency in the built world—from towering office buildings and affordable housing to unwinding the effects of roads on natural ecosystems.
