This podcast should appeal to anyone, at any age or stage, who wants to live more simply and mindfully. Episodes are clear and concise, and the delivery is smart yet appealingly humble. I am happy to learn from this sharp young woman. Her ideas are fresh and uncommercial. Looking forward to more!
Perfect Way to Start Moving Towards Zero Waste
I made the move to zero waste living about a year ago, and discovering this podcast has been a great way to continue that journey. I recently interviewed with Stephanie to talk about zero waste living in episode 20 of the podcast and it was such a great experience!
Practical and Impactful
Very thoughtful info that if even some is practiced by a fraction of is will mak a big difference!
I love the idea of sustainable lifestyle changes to make the Earth Day intent more than just one day per year.
Being a former chef, I can say that the buying ugly produce tip is a great way to use food that will probably go to waste. Blemished fruit is typically just as good and should definitely be used as well.
The “Family Cloth” tip is a bit (OK a lot) extreme for me. However, I do love and try to support local food as much as possible. That tip gets two big thumbs up for me!
