The Hum Sum – Humanity Adding Solutions

Matter of Trust founded, develops and sponsors The Hum Sum – for Humanity Adding Solutions as a practical, environmental social media platform dedicated to everyone who wants to offer and hear about planet-friendly ideas in an organized and useful way.  This is a spam-free, rant-free, bully-free, politics-free, troll-free site that is cost-free to the general public and isn’t selling or sharing personal data. It is member and staff moderated. Everyone, all nonprofits, businesses, government departments, utilities, schools, research, media, pilot projects, households… are welcome to join!  We found we needed what we created on platform and figured we might as well build it big enough for everyone else who wants to use it.
