    Episode 13: Madeline Rotman, Imperfect Foods [BONUS EPISODE]

    Small Act of Green Rebellion: Eat imperfect products.

    More than 40% of food grown is not eaten and all that food turns into CO2 in landfills. If food waste was a country it would be the third worst contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, only trailing behind the US and China. Imperfect Foods is looking to remove the not-so-perfect produce and foods from the waste stream and bring them to consumers at a fraction of the price.

    Madeline Rotman, Head of Sustainability at Imperfect Foods, talks to us about how the company has pivoted during COVID and tells us what her favorite product is to order every month (it's my new fav as well). Check out their blog, The Whole Carrot, as well as their podcast, Unwasted, for more tips on how to reduce food waste in your home.

    Just for listeners of Trash Talking, use promo code `ECOWARRIORS` for 30% off your first order from Imperfect Foods.

    Episode 11: JM Fabrizi, Coalatree

    Small Act of Green Rebellion: Wear clothes that help to close the loop.

    From the most supported clothing launch on Kickstarter to using coffee grounds in their hoodies and socks, Coalatree has created a brand that thinks as much about durability as they do about sustainability. JM Fabrizi, Director of Brand Development, joins us to chat about how the brand has successfully launched several products on Kickstarter, from the Kachula Blanket to the Trailhead Pants. Their evolution hoodies is made out of a  fabric, developed in Taiwan and Bluesign certified, that has helped to remove over 140,000 plastic bottles and 82,000 cups of coffee grounds from the waste stream so far.

    Visit Coalatree on Instagram and Twitter to see more. You can also check out their current Kickstarter for a self-healing windbreaker (I'm not kidding).

    Episode 10: Sierra Brodleit, ChicoBags

    Small Act of Green Rebellion: Stop using single-use plastics.

    Sierra Brodleit always grew up with sustainably minded parents. When she graduated from college, she knew she wanted to be at a company that aligned with her values. What started as an internship at a small company based in Chico, California turned out to be Sierra's only job that she's had since college.

    ChicoBags produces solutions for stopping the use of single-waste everything - plastic bags, snack bags, masks, bottles - you name it. And when your ChicoBag is at the end of its life, you can send it back and the company will recycle the materials on your behalf. Click here to watch the Bag Monster running through the streets of San Francisco and about how ChicoBags was sued by the top three producers in the plastics industry.

    Episode 8: Anu Menon, Driftaway Coffee

    Small Act of Green Rebellion: Buy sustainable gifts.

    More than 63% of American adults drink coffee and about 500 billion cups are consumed each year. Since coffee grows near the equator, that is a pretty big impact as a whole industry. Anu Menon started Driftaway Coffee with her husband, Suyog, as a way of building a company that they could both be passionate working on. A couple years in, they realized that in order to really love what they were building, they had to think of the sustainability of their company and products. Now, Driftaway Coffee is a subscription coffee company that uses fully compostable packaging and pricing transparency as part of their business practices.
