    Kresse Wesling - Her journey in rescuing waste from landfill

    In this episode of The Goods Podcast we chatted to Kresse Wesling of sustainable and luxury bag brand Elvis and Kresse, back in July. Tune in to hear all about how the brand was born from her love of waste and determination to solve one of these waste streams.



    Kresse explains how she fell in love with decommissioned fire hose and initially had no idea what she would do with it but she knew that the material was too good to die in landfill.



    We discuss the systemic problems within the fashion industry and she talks about how she felt compelled to act and create a business that did better. She’s super passionate about her cause and is a true example for the fashion industry that being a sustainable business within the space is possible.



    Grab your headphones, get comfy and get ready for your daily dose of inspo. Hope you enjoy listening to this one as much as we enjoyed recording it!

    Hugo Tagholm - His journey in protecting our oceans

    In this episode of The Goods Podcast we have Hugo Tagholm, the chief executive of Surfers Against Sewage, and all-around legend!

    We caught up Hugo from the epic charity Surfers Against Sewage to talk all about his love of nature, his passion for the environment and his journey in protecting our oceans 🏄‍♂️

    A true guardian of our oceans, Hugo has led SAS to become a central community for environmentalists of all ages and we loved chatting with him to discover what inspires and motivates him in his quest to do good. We recorded this one in Bristol at The Wave back in February 2020 before Covid 19 and it was a particularly great morning as we got out for a paddle before talking over his journey and the future of ocean conservation and activism. 

    With 8 million pieces of plastic finding their way into our oceans every day, Hugo and his team are on a mission to inspire, unite and empower communities to take action to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife 🌍

    Jonathon Porritt - His Journey and The Current State Of Our Climate

    Jonathon Porritt - His Journey and The Current State Of Our Climate

    Episode 1 of The Goods Podcast is with one of the UK's most loved environmentalists and one of the most inspiring figures in the sustainability movement, Sir Jonathon Porritt.

    Jonathon has had an incredible career, he was director of Friends of the Earth, A key member in the Green Party and founder of Forum For The Future a pioneering sustainable development organisation. He's also a patron and mentor for an incredible amount of organisations and environmentalists globally.

    More recently he’s announced that he’s stepping back to focus more heavily on activism and further amplifying the message of the urgency to act on climate change, using technology and methods that already exist.

    He’s also an author of multiple genuinely brilliant books which we talk about today, including ‘the world we made’ which was released in 2013 and his newest book Hope in Hell, in 2020.

    In this episode we also looked at his journey in how he’s got to become one of the most well-known figures in sustainability in the UK. We also take a look at the current state of sustainability, covering some pretty pressing issues, as well as the best way to communicate change and what actually needs to be done. We then closed off the podcast with some pretty wise predictions for the future from Jonathon!

    Now we recorded this one back in February 2020, a month or so before the COVID lockdown. It's a brilliant episode with nuggets of epicness spread throughout the recording, so sit back, relax and hear more about the incredible life of Sir Jonathon Porritt.

    Episode 0 - What is The Goods?

    Episode 0 - What is The Goods?

    The Goods Podcast is all about documenting people's journeys in doing good.

    But what is 'Good'? 

    To me the word Good means different things to different people, and we'll explore that in this podcast. The Goods Podcast will heavily weight in the category of social and environmental good in business, adventure and activism - giving both well known, and not so well known people a voice. 

    We'll be hearing from people who are leading the charge in positive social or environmental good, and I can promise they all have brilliant stories from past and present. Trust me on this one though, there's heaps of inspiration that comes with their wise stories. 

    The guests I’ll be interviewing also have a unique perspective on the future, and we'll explore elements of their predictions, whilst also looking at their lightbulb moments and influences through growing up and their careers.

    If you have have any thoughts, please get in touch - and thanks for joining me on this journey. Listen along, shape what good means to you and take that into your personal lives or workplace.  We would love a rating and feedback, so get in touch via @thegoodspodcast Instagram or communicate directly with me at joss@enviral.co.uk

    Bye world… and thanks for listening.
