When it comes to the climate crisis, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to sort through all the voices and information out there and to find the inspiration we need to start making changes in our lifestyle.
The wealth of resources, the grim statistics, and the opinions of scientists and politicians and our neighbors make it impossible to decide… who do we trust and where do we even begin.
Personally, with four little kids, and all the conveniently packaged snacks and plastic toys tempting me from the shelves, I assumed it was a useless endeavor to become eco-friendly in our family and absolutely impossible to live “less waste.”
But listen up… it is important we don’t tune out of this conversation, no matter our obstacles, and do what we can to invest in our Home and future generations. Perhaps we all need to consider bumping up sustainability as one of our top values.
My hope is to make educating ourselves on sustainability a joyful and simple process, so you can become excited about your part in bringing healing to our planet.
So today, I offer you…
3 podcasts I highly recommend to increase your awareness & find your next step in slowing the climate crisis:
We’ve been duped into thinking our plastics are being recycled.
In this brief episode, Seth breaks down the plot behind plastic recycling and reveals what might need to happen to get us all off the convenience bandwagon.
I listened to this over a year ago and I still think about it all the time!
When it comes to trying to figure out whether our individual lifestyle changes or activism matters, this episode will deliver clarity, helpful and eye-opening facts, and practical steps you can take to make the most difference.
How To Save A Planet is one of my favorite podcasts on all things climate crisis. The hosts are fun, super smart, engaging, and easy to listen to.
Author Stephanie Miller is so encouraging and advocates for each of us doing the best we can (even if it feels like not enough!) We must celebrate all the little actions we take to live more sustainably if we are going to be in it for the long haul.
She also explains her term “wish-cycling” which I’m sure we can all relate to. After listening to this episode I snagged a copy of her book, Zero-Waste Living: The 80/20 Way: A Busy Person’s Guide to A Lighter Footprint.
Which of the above recommendations sounds most interesting to you?
Pick one and take a moment to listen this week. They are all worth your time!
