    Conscious consumption can be tricky right now, during these quarantimes – if you’re not someone who typically spends freely, perhaps you’re feeling pressure to support local businesses in capacities you don’t normally, or maybe you’re just itching to make a frivolous purchase because you’re seeing more advertisements on social media. Whatever your struggle, we are putting conscious consumption into context: how should you be spending during and post-pandemic? We are breaking down unique ways to support business and brands that align with your values, and we’re also sharing some ideas to support organizations you like without spending dollars. Topics include equity, shopping small and/or local, building community online, equity and social issues, + more.

    111: Intersectional Environmentalism; How Race and Culture Impact Your Identity as an Environmentalist | Leah Thomas, GreenGirlLeah

    111: Intersectional Environmentalism; How Race and Culture Impact Your Identity as an Environmentalist | Leah Thomas, GreenGirlLeah

    We’re speaking with Leah Thomas, of GreenGirlLeah. Perhaps you’ve seen her viral Instagram post with the title slide of ‘Environmentalists for Black Lives Matter.’ We’re speaking today on Intersectional Environmentalism – defining it, relating it to feminism a bit, and talking broadly about how different cultures experience nature and those human-environment relationships historically. We also touch on climate racism, and why black, POC, and marginalized communities are experiencing the most severe public health risks from environmental degradation. Additionally,  we talk about the cognitive dissonance around why we may be experiencing disconnect from natural disasters and environmental degradation.















    Leah Thomas is an intersectional environmental activist and eco-communicator based in Southern California. She’s passionate about advocating for and exploring the relationship between social justice and environmentalism. Her work has been featured on The Good Trade, Buzzfeed, Vogue… her ideas of ‘intersectional environmentalism’ are literally changing the environmental world as we speak. Find her online at greengirlleah.com + on Instagram, @GreenGirlLeah.

    We’re joined by Julia Pyper: one of my very favorite journalists, podcast hosts, and all-around incredible women in energy!

Switching gears, we discuss inclusivity in energy and environmental spheres, and the injustices surrounding climate change, health, and minority communities.

She is a professor and director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, and has authored 125+ peer-reviewed publications.
