Episode 2: Changing how we consumer for a sustainable future

In this second episode of our “Citizens for Change” series we tackle an issue that touches all of us: Consumption. Every day we make decisions about what we consume, from our weekly shopping lists to the energy we use to heat our homes. And every one of these choices can have a significant impact on the climate and the future of our planet.

Co-founder of Futerra, Solitaire Townsend, joins Mike for a discussion on our current resource crisis, consumption inequalities, and ways to move forward beyond greenwashing as we change how we consume. Their main takeaway: The power is in our hands.
