One of the most pervasive problems plaguing our world and environment right now is exactly how much plastic we use once and then toss. Not to mention that it often makes its way into the ocean every year. It can feels overwhelming—and there isn’t one solution out there, but with such a massive problem, there are new companies out there whose goal it is to help solve the issue. On this week's Girlboss Radio, Sophia Amoruso chats with Sarah Paiji Yoo, the co-founder and CEO of Blueland, a company that's trying to eliminate single-use plastics in the world of cleaning products. The idea is this: You buy the cleaning bottle once and when you need more cleaning solution, you fill it up with water, drop in a cleaning tablet and then you get a brand new full bottle of solution. Tune in to hear how Sarah and Blueland are part of a new wave of companies focused on merging business and sustainability. To keep up with Sarah, follow her at: https://www.instagram.com/spaiji/Feedback on the show?

Catt Sadler's career as an entertainment journalist was, by many means, a dream job. It allowed her to cover the red carpet and interview many of Hollywood's hottest celebrities. But, in 2017 while working as a co-host at E! News, Catt found out some startling information. Her male coworker was getting paid "twice" her salary at the network. So—she asked for more at the bargaining table. But after the back and forth negotiations, no deal was struck and Catt did what few thought she would: She walked away from the "dream job" at the glamorous network she'd worked at for years.Since her much-publicized departure, Catt has become a vital voice in the conversation surrounding equal pay and the wage gap. On this week's episode of Girlboss Radio, Catt dives into why she decided to walk away and why she's so excited about her new projects—like her own podcast, Naked with Catt Sadler—and why she's not slowing down anytime soon.To keep up with Catt, go to http://www.thecattwalk.com/To hear Catt interview Sophia, listen to the NAKED podcast here: http://www.thecattwalk.com/nakedHave feedback on the show?
