Great way to start living a sustainable lifestyle

I love this this podcast, it has lots of info and i love the people they interview as well. I love the options and information that they provide. I feel like i learn a lot with this podcast. But i do agree with some of the reviews they recommend a lot of products which i understand they need to make money somehow but some products that they recommend contain plastic for example i love 100% pure but their packaging is still in plastic containers. So i just wish they added a note or info saying why they think that product is eco friendly. I do wish they included more eco friendly volunteer options or ways the community can join as well. I hope they do that in the future but besides that it is a good pod cast to start off!

Amazing!

I’m only a few episodes in but I absolutely love this podcast. I have never left a review on a podcast before but I needed to give you gals 5 stars. This is a very informative and fun podcast that introduces the many different aspects of loving the environment. I love the format when you’re interviewing experts in their field because you really know how to get the most information in a timely manner. AMAZING!

Great community!

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!
