I adore the community and content brightly puts out! I like the episodes with guests and product recommendations. I love my sheets n giggles they recommend. If I want to be picky the podcast could use small tweaks in editing out the loud breaths. They put out a lot more content on social media with more tips that should be also talked about in the episode (some episodes are repetitive with the things we can do so talk about more than just that!) I think you can expand the community you’ve built like that! Thank you!
I’ll shout it from the rooftop!
The amount of sustainability ideas and solutions in this podcast is AMAZING. These hosts do their homework. If you’re at all intrigued by how we can shift our usage practices and leave the planet a tiny bit better than before, listen to these ladies! I look forward to it every week, and I learn something new every. Dang. Time. Five stars!
Not for the masses
Great podcast for privileged white women to spend money on expensive products. There’s no sustainable tips for the rest of us. I really wanted to love this podcast but this is more of a shopping podcast than a sustainability podcast.
