#6: Does positivity have a place in the sustainability movement?

Welcome to the Green Indy Sustainability Podcast! This is a semi-regular zero waste podcast/audio dive into some of my more complex posts so we can dive deeper and let you avoid reading my novel-length posts unless you really want to! This is Episode #6: Does positivity have a place in the sustainability movement? The TL;DR:100% positivity is NOT something required of zero waste advocates. We need positivity (embracing practical accomplishments – big and small) but we can’t let that positivity cloud our reality. Or let positivity be an excuse for bypassing the uncomfortable issues. We’ll talk toxic positivity, spiritual bypassing, and how we can use positivity effectively within zero waste. Find out more.

Episode #4: How do we Introduce Zero Waste to Conservative Communities?

Welcome to the Green Indy Sustainability Podcast! This is a semi-regular zero waste podcast/audio dive into some of my more complex posts so we can dive deeper and let you avoid reading my novel-length posts unless you really want to! This is Episode #4: How do we introduce zero waste to conservative communities? The TL;DR: It’s easy to stay safe in the feedback loop of Instagram or a small group of local sustainability friends, but that’s not enough to save the planet.

Episode #3- Should We Let Companies Into The Zero Waste Movement?

Welcome to Green Indy Blog – the audio version, a semi-regular audio dive into some of my more complex posts so we can dive deeper and let you avoid reading my novel-length posts unless you really want to! Episode 3 is all about the dangers of allowing huge corporations to be a part of the zero waste activism conversation. The TL;DR:As I – and other influencers – have been approached to tout large companies’ sustainability platforms, I wonder when – if ever – do we invite corporations to participate in the conversation around zero waste and sustainability activism? These companies have the money to market themselves in the mainstream with ads… but within the zero waste activism movement itself – do we legitimize them by letting them into the conversation?

This is a semi-regular zero waste podcast/audio dive into some of my more complex posts so we can dive deeper and let you avoid reading my novel-length posts unless you really want to! This is Episode #2: Planned Obsolescence and Right to Repair. The TL;DR: Companies engage in a targets campaign of planned obsolescence, ie. they make sure the products we buy will quickly become out-of-date, break, or unfixable so we’re forced to repurchase. By voiding warranties if you try to repair items yourself, companies are keeping us in a consumption cycle.
