Personal Life Media, publisher of lifestyle content in the form of 15 weekly audio programs, podcasts and blogs for people on the leading edge of culture, announced that it is showcasing a special series on “Living Green: Effortless Ecology for Everyday People” an advertising and sponsorship-supported free podcast. Hosted by Meredith Medland, founder of 3outcomes.com and environmental blogger, Meredith confabs with professionals in the ecology and sustainable-living arena who have special requests for Americans who want to move to a more green way of life.
“Americans have varying levels of interest in the green movement and through my interviews and relationships with some of today’s foremost experts on how to live a sustainable lifestyle, we believe if we â€˜challengeâ€™ American citizens by providing simple ways they can incorporate living green into their busy lives, we would see a shift in thinking that no matter how small or seemingly insignificant a change is, it will make a difference,” Meredith Medland said.
Each week, Meredith’s guests provide one â€œsmall changeâ€ that American consumers can use to begin creating a healthier planet.
These simple requests from experts include:
Michael Gosney, co-founder, Green Century Institute â€“ â€œHelp your town or city implement systemic changes toward ecological balance starting with your neighbors or those in your community.â€
Tierra Del Forte, Founder, Del Forte Denim – â€œAlways carry a non-disposable tote around so you have an alternative to use plastic bags for those last minute purchases.â€
Rowan Gabrielle, President, URTH.tv â€“ â€œRe-think the way you dress. Buy or make at least one organic outfit that you either love the color, style or fabric and live in it to see how it makes you feel. Rather than wearing something for “fashion”, wear something that is for “life.” Know that in making a change in your clothing, you are making yourselves a walking embodiment of change.â€
Richard Louv, author of the best selling book â€˜Last Child in the Woods â€“ Saving our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder’ â€“ â€œSpend two hours a week outside in nature. This will give you a better perspective on the wholeness and beauty of our earth and what we could potentially lose if we don’t value its existence.â€
Suzanne Sterling, World Music Diva, Kirtan Leader & Progressive / Ritualist of the Yoga Groove â€“ â€œSeek out and use ONLY green cleaning products such Seventh Generation or the like.â€
Sarah Haynes, founder and CEO of The Spitfire Agency – â€œCarry your garbage for a week in a backpack with you everywhere you go.â€
Paul Stamets, mycologist, founder of Fungi PerfectiÂ® and author, who discusses his recent work in the movie 11th Hour with Leonardo DiCaprio and Daryl Hannah – â€œLearn to identify 10 species of mushrooms so that you are aware of the inherent powers and ways to improve the health of the planet and its people.â€
Zem Joaquin, green editor for House and Garden & the ecofabulous siteâ€“ â€œUse a travel coffee mug to eliminate the paper cup waste created each time you purchase a coffee or beverage.â€
