117 - Denim as It Should Be, with Sandya Lang of Nudie Jeans
The work being done by Nudie Jeans to make everything about their denim transparent and responsible - dare we say: the way it should be - is worth a closer look. Our interview with Sustainability Manager, Sandya Lang, shows the lengths they go to, the accountability and initiative they've taken, and sets a high-water mark for what actually sustainable brands should be doing. Nudie's denim has been a cult favorite for two decades and with ethical leadership like theirs blazing a path forward, they show no signs of slowing.
116 - An Agency Answers the Call, with Katie Klencheski of SMAKK Studios
Some of the most egregious climate lies were sold thanks to the work of creatives and marketers who put a pretty face on ugly truths. When considering the role of creatives in addressing the climate crisis, Katie Klencheski, founder of SMAKK Studios, has a clear-eyed sense of what's happening and how absolutely everyone has a responsibility to step in. Join us in conversation with Katie and learn how her agency and leadership has answered the call of climate change.
115 - Asking Corporations to Raise Their Voice, with Bill Weihl of Climate Voice
Corporations have an incredible role to play in shaping public policy around climate, and many of us don't realize the ability we have in helping to drive these corporate climate agendas. Bill Weihl of Climate Voice lays it all out - from taking inspiration from LGBTQ rights to sussing out the values of a company by way of its political donations, and including ways to help campaign for change from within your own organization.
No matter who you are or where you work, you and your company can make important contributions in shaping the future of our climate. Join Bill and many others in raising your Climate Voice.
114 - The Answer Might Just Be Mycelium, with Dr. Mitchell Jones
We're all hoping for breakthroughs in materials innovation so that we can actively choose more sustainable options for a host of needs. Researchers have found one promising solution and its uses range from paper to filtration (including virus filtration), building materials, packaging, bandages, wound treatment, leather-like material, heavy metal chelation, and more. It turns out, the answer we're looking for might just be mycelium.
Join Dr. Mitchell Jones, as he takes us on a tour of mycelium - the vegetative part of fungus - and its myriad uses. With any luck, mycelium-based products may be headed to stores near you soon.
113 - Actually* Sustainable Packaging, with Saloni Doshi of EcoEnclose
It's no secret that e-commerce has taken off, but just how many considerations go into the packaging your online purchase needs to reach you? From ink to paper, plastic, tape, labels, and more, packaging in many instances generates more waste than the items it ships.
What started as a small diaper business has blossomed under the guidance and heart of Saloni Doshi. She's made this family business an innovative hub for sustainable packaging and built partnerships across the supply chain. Her leadership and approach are an inspiration, and couldn't come at a better time. Join us as she discusses the way she's grown EcoEnclose, and learn how to assess your packages with an eye for the environment from here on out.
