    World Environment Day 2023 with Mrs Vani Murthy

    World Environment Day 2023 with Mrs Vani Murthy

    "Everyday is our environment Day". I'm truly blessed that one of the most inspiring mentors, Mrs Vani Murthy, more famously known as 'Worm Rani' agreed to be on my podcast on this 'World Environment Day'.
     
    Vani Murthy ji has been living a 0 waste lifestyle for decades now. She literally  lives and inspires millions of people  to live a plastic free and earthly lifestyle. No wonder she has 289000 followers on Instagram.
    My visit to her home helped me see practically, how she grows her own food, uses the remains to compost it and has a 100% no trash lifestyle. 
     
    Each time I speak to her, it gives me great hope that this is the route and the best 'Solution to plastic Pollution'. This year's theme for 'World Environment Day'.
     
    Some of my questions were around what she thinks of the current situation with regards to Plastic pollution. Does she really think there is a solution/ replacement for the numerous number of plastic things we use every single day? 
    Children see, children do! If parents are using plastic unhindered, is there a chance for children to lead a path to plastic free living?
     
    I loved every perspective she shared. Request you to please listen to the full episode too!

    Mother's Day is something I'm very excited about, Every year!
    Making card for my mom has been my yearly practice. I know for a fact; this is NOT enough. 

    Did you know? The Little-WISE club I've been working on for the past 1 year made an impact by collecting close to 2.5 metric tons of plastic? If not for the encouragement of Mothers, not just mine, I wouldn't have been able to do any of it!

    I'm taking this perfect opportunity to introduce to the world, these 3 moms who are the trustees of 'Siyona's Little WISE Trust'. Thy have been working very hard to make a great positive impact on the health of thousands of children. Believe it or not, behind these thousands of children, there are thousands of mothers encouraging our efforts. The true Warriors behind the Little-WISE Eco-warriors.

    Happy Mother's Day!
    Lots of love to ALL the moms of this world! Thank you.

    127: Sustainable Financial Future with Dr. Mara Harvey

    127: Sustainable Financial Future with Dr. Mara Harvey

    While sustainability and finance seem like two very diverse topics, a combination of the two, 'Sustainable Investing' is something I learnt in this very educative podcast episode, 
    Dr. Mara Harvey, has been guiding and educating parents and children towards financial literacy with a focus on sustainability. She has published rhymed book for children on money, equality and sustainability.
    Dr. Mara has emphasized on the importance of consumer choices and how powerful our choices are, in deciding how consumer companies contribute towards sustainability.
    Human population is on the rise and we are consuming too many resources from our planet, not allowing enough time to replenish. 
    'There is no shortage of capital on this planet to achieve Sustainable Development Goals' 
    Her fifth book in the series explains the 17 Sustainable Development Goals to children in rhymes. It has been endorsed and published by the United Nations under the title "START DOING GOOD".
    Its interesting to learn how uniquely she has developed rhymes so that kids can playfully learn and be aware of UNSDGs, just like their ABCs.
    Listen to the podcast and get inspired! Link is in the comments.
