Description

Saddle up for this week’s Sustainability Now! as your host, Justin Mog, rides along with his friend and neighbor, Emily Coleman, for joyful conversation about how taking action for sustainability does not require green superpowers, but is actually a fun, live-affirming thing that EVERYONE can do! Emily has begun sharing some of her thoughts and practices at https://www.instagram.com/tiredofbeingachicken/. Tune in as we discuss the key changes that sent her down the sustainability wormhole, such as bussing/biking/walking rather than paying the mental/financial toll of car ownership; working in the service industry where they reuse bar towels rather than buying disposable paper towels; and how all these small steps reinforce each other and grow over time.
