A smoothie for your spirit!
I walk away from every episode feeling more hopeful about our planet's future! Laura and Liza bring on guests that are both informative and interesting, and I've discovered some seriously fantastic sustainability resources from this show. Great stuff!
i haven’t found many podcasts about sustainability, so i was very excited to find this one. i usually just listen to it as “background noise” and yes i do find some of the information useful, but i feel like a lot of it is general information. i’d rather they didn’t recommend so many products, especially the same ones over & over again. and many of the products aren’t even eco swabs, but just clothing/jewelry/etc. they both seem like lovely ladies but i want more from the podcast...
