Book of Leaves - Eco Friendly Education & Inspirational Stories

By bookofleaves

Join Irish actor and nature enthusiast, Ceara Carney, as she sits down with other activists, entrepreneurs, vegans, farmers, NGOs and your "everyday people" who are doing their bit to save the planet. From at home solutions to fast fashion or food waste, to the sciences of climate change and biodiversity, there's a wide range of angles covered to tackle this crisis. Plastic pollution, fracking, melting ice caps, mass extinction. It's terrifying. BUT. There are so many people out there coming up with or *being* solutions and in this podcast, we hear their stories, learn from them, and walk away with a "leaf" or two (or twenty!) to add to our own way of sustainable living. Whether you're just starting out making small steps to an eco life, or you're the master of zero waste minimalism, this podcast has something for you. Ireland may be small but we make a mighty impact on Earth. Education and conversation is key, hope is even more so.
