    Episode 28: Why Are Bees Important

    We've all heard the quote, “If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have 4 years left to live”, but why?  Do we even know why honey bees are so important and what we can do to protect bee populations?  Joanna from the blog Planetbanan.com explains.

    Episode 27: How Ethical & Sustainable is H&M Home

    Episode 27: How Ethical & Sustainable is H&M Home

    Today we welcome back Jill from Ethical Home Edit, and today we are going to learn just how sustainable H&M Home is. H&M is tricky, and you’ll hear later that Jill struggles with H&M as well. Here’s the issue, H&M is becoming more transparent about their supply chain, labor, pay and are trying to use more sustainable textiles in their clothes, and now their home, lines. This is admirable and goes well beyond what we get from most retailers today.  However, H&M still produces too many clothes, too often and most of the time, poor- quality, which means the lifespan of those garments are very short, either because they go out of trend or fall apart. Either way ending up in a landfill far to early and again, far too often.
