Description

Welcome to Sustainability Disruptors, a podcast that's all about inspiring change. I'm your host, Erin Andrews, and I'm thrilled to bring you along for the ride. As the Executive Director of Impact Zero, a nonprofit based in Toronto that helps bring circular economy solutions to life, I've had the privilege of meeting some of the most amazing people in the sustainability world. In this show, we're going to sit down and have real, personal conversations with entrepreneurs, business leaders, researchers, activists, and anyone else who's making a difference in the world. We'll learn about their passions, their struggles, and their triumphs, and we'll gain a deeper understanding of the circular economy and what it takes to make the impossible, possible. So join me on this journey, as we discover what it means to be a sustainability disruptor.
