    Episode 4: Danielle Doggett, SAILCARGO

    Small Act of Green Rebellion: Buy carbon neutral products.

    Danielle Doggett took her love of sailing and nature to build a company that will sail products from Costa Rica up the Pacific in a carbon neutral vessel. The shipping cargo industry pollutes more than the 6th most polluted country in the world and 10,000 containers are lost at sea every year (check out this article about the rubber ducks lost at sea). This means a hefty impact on our planet for up to 90% of the goods that we own. SAILCARGO is hoping to change that and help reduce our impact on the planet with carbon neutral shipping.

    Season 3 Trailer

    It’s 2020. Your local compost program has been canceled due to COVID. Shops are using single-use plastic in an attempt to curb the spread of coronavirus. Grocery stores are denying your reusable bags. Forget reusable cups at your local coffeeshop. And everyone is home, producing more disposable waste and individually trying to cool down their apartments during the hot summer.

    For all of us eco-warriors, this year could not be a bigger climate disaster. And as the worst fires rage on the western coast and the southern coast is bombarded with hurricanes and tropical storms, we sit at home and wonder - WHAT CAN I DO?

    Season 3 of Trash Talking with Eco-Warriors is all about fighting the green fight. Doing those small things that can turn into a wave, a movement, your win against the war. So if you’re tired of the status quo and staying at home doing NOTHING, this is it. Start small, start today. We’ll be giving you tips from leaders in the green movement who’ll share how you can contribute your small act in this green rebellion.

    Rise up, Green Rebels.

Interesting content

I’ve been looking for a “eco-friendly” podcast for a while and did had much luck until I found this one. The content is very interesting and useful and the format is nice and easy.

Good intent, but...

I love learning about new green solutions and ideas so the intent of this podcast is good, but the host’s incessant use of “awesome” and “like” makes it hard to listen. “Distracting” as the other reviewer noted is true. Also, the host should do a better job of planning her questions. Will give it another shot, though.

“That’s awesome”

Interesting content. The host makes it almost unbearable to listen to with her constant “that’s awesome” response to everything the guest says. Please find a better way to transfer to your next question..
