    Climate Change Anxiety

    Climate Change Anxiety

    Yup. It's a thing. And if you listened to our last episode, this episode can provide a nice remedy for the stress it may have induced! 

    We talked to climate psychologist, Leslie Davenport about how to deal with the stress of climate change. 

    We also revisited some great commentary from Mariel Hemingway from one of our shows about eco-therapy and how nature can be a powerful healer.

    The Microplastic Plague

    The Microplastic Plague

    Using less plastic, storing food in glass and generally keeping a clean and healthy home is not enough to keep us safe from microplastics. It is literally EVERYWHERE. We breathe it in every day in our own homes or even outside in nature.

    Matt Simon talks to The Green Divas about his research for his new book, A Poison Like No Other: How Microplastics Corrupted Our Planet and Our Bodies. 

    There is frightening new research about just how currupted our environment and our bodies actually are with micro and nanoplastics, but there is still a long way to go to gain a full understanding of the health and environmental impacts of plastic. ugh.

    The Environmental Impact of Online Shopping

    The Environmental Impact of Online Shopping

    Online shopping is a bigger industry than ever. It sure is convenient, but what about the environmental impact? We explore some humbling stats about ecommerce and the bottom line of which is more eco-friendly -- online v. brick and mortar. The answer might surprise you. And yes, there are some GD confessions about how we have all fallen prey to this super easy way to shop. Be nice. We're always striving to be better.

    Talking turkey about food waste

    Talking turkey about food waste

    The Green Divas love food, but don't love food waste. It's a never-ending challenge to keep food from spoiling and being wasted -- at home and in our communities.

    While we've covered this issue a few times, it was time to update some statistics (to our horror) and revisit and remind ourselves of all the ways we can help mitigate food waste and help those that are hungry.

    There's a fun Green Dude segment from a few years back from Jeff Yeager, the Ultimate Cheapskate, who has been on a mission to "Save the Giblets!"

    Also, some relevant advice from another older interview with Jonathan Bloom, who wrote the book, American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (and What We Can Do About It). The book is over a decade old, but his advice is still VERY relevant!

    Are electric vehicles the best choice for the environment?

    Are electric vehicles the best choice for the environment?

    There are many valid questions about the eco-friendliness of electric vehicles (aka EVs). From the production of batteries, which require mining of rare earth minerals, to range-anxiety and charging infrastructure, to the carbon cost of charging them, there are a lot of variables in calculating the overall carbon footprint.

    We have more questions than answers, but thanks to two of our long-time green dudes who are experts on EVs, John Voelcker and Seth Leitman, we feel better informed.
