105 • Kids Taking Action
The work we're doing is important but what about the kids? Ocean Heroes Alexander and Leo (12 and 10 years old) chat on today's podcast along with Danny Witte of Lonely Whale about the work they are doing to reduce single-use take out containers in their home town, and how you are never too young to start taking action for the planet. "By no means are straws the biggest threat to ocean health, but we use them as a symbol, as a gateway conversation to the dangers of all plastics."

103 • Symptoms of Climate Change
Extinction of a species? When it comes to symptoms of climate change, that feels serious. This week I’m chatting with Jolyon Collier, founder of Counting Coral, a non-profit organization working tirelessly beneath the waves to restore our coral reefs. We start with the basics, such as what is coral and why is it bleaching before getting into direct actions we can take to help Counting Coral save these stunning marine life habitats, and how reducing our reliance on the meat industry is actually the first step towards the planet’s salvation.  Counting Coral: https://www.countingcoral.com/ Documentaries to check out: https://www.cowspiracy.com/ https://www.whatthehealthfilm.com/ https://www.forksoverknives.com/ https://www.chasingcoral.com/ https://www.netflix.com/ca/title/80216393 __________________ New Episodes Every (other) Sunday at 8 AM.

Today I’m chatting with Sara Brigz of Let That Shit Go, all about decluttering for your mental health! We cover tips for decluttering, how to get rid of things sustainably, ways to discover your values and motivators, and how a tidy room can be a tidy mind. I know for me that the space around me if very often a reflection of how busy, tired, stressed, relaxed or anxious my brain is at any given time, and I can often feel better about my situation by tidying up all the kids toys or laundry or doing the dishes. Well not the dishes, I don’t really do those.. Sara has such great tips today, and it was so lovely to chat with her again. It’s been almost two years since she was first on the show and you’re going to love what she has to share. Let’s go!

095 • Advanced Zero Waste with Polly Barks
Beyond the bubble of our own households beyond the individual actions we talk privilege, climate justice, and community activism, as well as all about Polly’s book More Than a Plastic Bag, which I just got as an ebook and it’s so so helpful and full of action items to help us change the world. If you are BRAND NEW to zero waste, hold up, and swing over to some other episodes like episode 55 zero waste swaps, or episode 19 Random Acts of Green, there’s lots of episodes for those who are just hearing about zero waste for the first time. In today’s chat with Polly we upend a lot of typical zero waste ideals and expand our horizons to take on larger climate action, so if you’re ready to get a little scared but also super charged to do more for the planet in the time we have left, join me in this chat, because it is oh so good.

087 • Fertility + Plastic Free Sex
The Sex Ed class you should have had in school. Before we get into today’s chat a few bits of information: (1) Lisa uses necessarily explicit language in some cases to be as clear as possible. (2) This conversation focuses on plastic-free sex between a male and female partner because the topic is fertility awareness as a method of birth control, but that being said I think every woman should be aware of how their bodies work for optimal health so look into it either way. (3) We don’t cover condoms, IUD’s or any other form of barrier method, we’re just talking about fertility awareness as a form of birth control and the effects of hormonal contraceptives like the Pill on our overall health. And (4) my views in the episode are my views, and Lisa’s views are her views backed by studies and years of research. It’s up to you to take it or leave it. But if you come away from today’s topic with anything I want it to be that you deserve a healthy awareness of your reproductive health as well as a loving, safe relationship.

083 • What is Zero Waste?
Ready for a radical way to live by your values for the good of everyone? Environmental activist Carlyn Grebleski speaks today about how to live zero waste and how to take further action to reduce your impact and go beyond remembering your reusable water bottle! Grab her quick definition below as well as links to blog posts and how to get in touch. zero-waste: “Zero waste as you’ll see on this blog is the effort to reduce the individual’s waste of limited resources while also avoiding, as much as possible, giving money to companies that encourage the misuse or irresponsible use of the world’s resources. A resource is anything that we can make use of. Wasting something can be throwing something away so it isn’t used, using more than necessary so that we need more financial resources (money) or natural resources to make up for using too much, or generally using a lot of resources on things we don’t need; one way to think of it is resource frugality.” Carlyn's Blog: https://www.lesswasteworld.com/ Manners for a World on Fire: https://www.lesswasteworld.com/blog-1/2020/1/25/radical-manners @ecopracticality https://www.instagram.com/ecopracticality/ New Episodes Every Sunday at 8 AM.
