    Ep. 227: Intro to Home Decarbonization Series

    We're Back! That's right, after taking a break, Kelly and Jason are back in the podcast booth... or at least the living room couch recording the podcast. After moving to the Metro Detroit area, they decided to dive into the topic of home decarbonization from weatherization, HVAC, kitchen appliances and more. In today's episode, they will be introducing the topic for this series. Since this will take some research, episodes will not drop every week as they did in the past, however they will do their best not to have a 4 month drought again anytime soon. So give this podcast a follow on social media @sustainabiliME.pod and share with your friends and family!
    Also HAPPY EARTH DAY!!! 
    Also HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY SUSTAINABILIME!!!

    Today I’ll be chatting with Jeff Grasser, Senior Resort Operations & Sustainability Manager for Copper Mountain Ski Resort located in Frisco, Colorado. It’s really exciting to be releasing this episode today, because as of this week, the 2023-2024 ski season at Copper is officially upon us. What’s also exciting is the fact that Copper Mountain is truly serious about their sustainability efforts through their Play Forever campaign. Jeff will be covering all of the pillars of that campaign including energy, waste, land, and community. He will be really diving into the land preservation and enhancement techniques that enhance biodiversity and carbon sequestration on the mountain.

An Antidote to Climate Angst

I’m so glad I discovered this podcast. As an ardent conservationist and concerned nature lover, this podcast showcases tangible, real life efforts by people making a difference. Sure, there’s a LOT of negative climate news, but a little positive news is very nice to hear. Keep up your good work Kelly!! Thank you!!!
