[123] HOW TO GREEN YOUR BUSINESS (EVEN IF IT’S NOT YOUR BUSINESS…)

Dec 3 • 01:05:45

I talk a lot on this podcast about changes that we can make as individuals, and as households but possibly don’t talk enough about the other spheres of influence we have where we can create change....

[122] COP26 – WHAT HAPPENED AND WHAT NOW?

Nov 26 • 44:31

So then.....
COP26 is all done and dusted, and the circus has moved on out of town.
There was a LOT of coverage (at least there was in my little social media bubble!) and it was amazing to see climate issues as headline news nearly every day through out the fortnight.
And there were a helluva a lot of opinion pieces written, tweeted and spoken - many of them contradictory, an...

[121] CLIMATE AND HEALTH – A WIN-WIN SITUATION

Nov 19 • 01:07:28

At first glance, healthcare and the NHS might not seem to be linked to the climate crisis. And doesn't the NHS have enough on it's plate at the moment without being expected to 'green' itself?...

[120] TOOTHPASTE AND SYSTEM CHANGE…

Nov 12 • 10:57

So then. How are you feeling?
It’s coming up to the end of COP and two weeks of intense negotiation and shenanigans. Someone asked me this morning how I was feeling about it all, and my answer was confused. Or should that be COPfused – see what I did there…

And I get a sense that I’m not the only one.
My social media feeds have been full of posts – lots of them contradicting...

[119] SHREWSBURY CUP

Nov 5 • 51:35

Here in the UK we get through around 2.5 BILLION disposable cups a year – 1 million trees are felled just for coffee cups, and a typical cup uses around 05 litre of water in being made....

[118] A BEGINNERS GUIDE TO COP26

Oct 29 • 50:42

COP 26.
You can’t fail to have heard about it – my social media feeds are full of it, and even though these are very definitely skewed for eco stuff, it’s been all over the mainstream news and there’s been lots of great TV programming around it.
 
But, erm, what is it?

Hopefully I’m not alone in not really knowing – or having a kind of idea, but not really feeling like I coul...

[117] TRANSFORMING EDUCATION WITH THE MINISTRY OF ECO EDUCATION

Oct 22 • 56:43

Today we’re talking education, specifically eco-education.
For me it feels like schools are a really big part of the jigsaw when it comes to changing hearts and minds, and to educating and empowering us all around the changes that we can make, both individually and collectively. More and more schools are running eco clubs, and hosting Green Days or Green Weeks, but ‘sustai...

[116] WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING TO ENERGY PRICES AND SHOULD I STILL SWITCH TO A RENEWABLE TARIFF..?

Oct 15 • 53:47

Gas prices are going through the roof, energy bills are soaring, and energy companies are dropping like flies.
Why is this happening, and what is the best thing for us to do as consumers, for our household budget and for the planet?
Tune in to this episode with Jon Fletcher from green energy comparison site Big Clean Switch, where I ask him 'all the questions' about exactly ...

[115] ALL THE CLIMATE FEELS…

Oct 8 • 00:00

Strap yourself in, this episode is all about emotions and feelings - specifically emotions and feelings related to the climate crisis and the teensy matter of the planet burning and us all going to hell in a handcart. That kind of stuff.

Before we dive in, hopefully it goes without saying that I’m not a therapist, or a psychologist, or in any way qualified to give actual ad...

[114] HOW TO RAISE A GLOBAL CITIZEN

Oct 1 • 00:00

In this episode I’m chatting to James Murray, editor of Business Green, and contributor to a recently publish book How to raise a global citizen – a book with the tagline "For the parents of the children who will save the world".
We chat about why we’re both not really very keen on that tagline, the pressure that is on parents in our rapidly changing world, what it means to...
