In this episode @dansolo__ is in conversation with Georgina Wilson-Powell, founder and editor in chief of @pebblemagazine. Pebble mag’s mission is to help folks live a more beautiful, fun and lower impact life on the spaceship earth. They are a magazine that inspires and informs about everything needed to crack on being more circular, less wasteful, more ethical, less plastic and so on. They want to help folks move away from overconsumption. They are big on community, and their online spaces are lively places to ask questions, share tips, eco-wins, new brands and anything else you love to talk about. And in a pre covid world they are all about events. We talk about the story of Pebble and its recent relaunch, what the community has been learning through lock down, exploring our relationship to stuff, food, community, waste, travel, fixing and mending, the responsibility of brands, having time vs materials. We explore hyper consumption culture, life in lockdown, fast living vs slow living, how folks have been feeling, this moment in time and the opportunity to hold on to new behaviours and lessons learned during the lockdown which might lead us to a more beautiful way of living on this planet. We also dive into the enormous tension and power of vested interests to get us ‘back to normal’. ( we get a bit ranty here, but this was recorded 4 months into lockdown) We get into the role of brands and stories in shifting behavior and tackling the big issues of our time, we touch on Facebook and media platforms and the ethics of advertising on platforms that are supporting hate. And much more. Georgina is an inspiration and her dedication and drive to build Pebble is something else. Do check out PebbleMag and hope you enjoy.
