Beliefs, Values, and Traditions
Working with sustainability and green over the years has taught me a lot about people. I've learned how much our beliefs, values, and traditions impact the way we live our lives and how the way we live connects with climate change and sustainability.
Today, I will be focusing on beliefs, values, and the traditions we tend to adopt. I will offer you some alternative perspectives for looking at your home and living in it. I will also explain how the way you think impacts the way you live.

In this episode, we will be diving into some simple and straightforward ways to ensure that your home is safe, healthy, and comfortable for you, your family, and the whole community.
PRAGMATIC, THOUGHTFUL, EMPOWERING
A free education in all things green that unites people with the pragmatism of visionary Marla Esser Cloos, author of the Benjamin Franklin Award winning reference book "Living Green Effortlessly", and her incredible guests. Marla Esser Cloos decodes the idea of "Living Green" when it can seem indecipherable, daunting, and even exhaustingly patriarchal (not unlike Shakespeare). This podcast addresses and faces existential questions, specifically in moments masked in jocularity, about sustainability and home. Creating better, healthier, thriving stories through our actions (or inactions) can happen each and everyday. Why can't our world be automated and normalized to that effect??
Inspiring and educating podcast. The two hosts have great knowledge and great guests!
Inspiration for Change
Marla and Toni inspire people to do what they can. They bring diverse guests on to their show and illustrate a myriad of ways to make small changes that provide huge impact on the environment and our pocketbook
