SustainableQATAR’s 52 weekly challenges – that is one challenge per week for a whole year themed by month – are Qatar-specific and Qatar-relevant opportunities for all residents to take actions in personal life, work and within our communities.

The desert heat has attracted us to live here. We are not alone. With heat and humidity come a few more residents we share our homes with. In October we discussed Gardening for Climate Action and encouraged everyone to observe and keep beneficial bugs for healthy soils. This month’s focus on Green Chemistry offers alternatives to the many toxic chemicals in consumer products, like those used to reduce disagreeable insects.

This week’s challenge is about keeping our homes free of the unwelcome guests that can invade our homes. We focus on preventative measures and safe options for pest control management when needed. For the case of accidental exposure to toxic chemicals, we introduce the Qatar Poison Center for swift action.
