Today is America Recycles Day! Did you know that 42% of Americans don’t have a convenient way to recycle. Recyclops is looking to change that by crowd-sourcing the means for folks in communities without curbside recycle to get their recycling to a nearby center. While recycling isn't the end-all-be-all for sustainability solutions, recycling is part of the solution for ensure we are using our planet's resources wisely, especially when it comes to materials like glass that can be infinitely recycled. Paula shares how she got into this line of work after spending time as a SCUBA instructor.

    The Blue Standard for preventing ocean pollution with Cassia Patel @ Oceanic Global

    21:57

    Being able to incentivize companies and businesses like Royal Sands and Corona to become more sustainable takes lots of small steps - from single-use plastic reduction to the installation of filtered water stations with refillable bottles. Creating a way to raise awareness and recognition for these efforts is one way that we can use our system for good. The Blue Standard by Oceanic Global was designed to help consult businesses through these changes and then award them for their work. We're joined by Cassia Patel, who has been a Program Director at Oceanic Global, for nearly 4 years to hear more. -- If the content we make on the Eco-Warriors Podcast makes an impact on you, become a sponsor!

    Re-thinking Food Waste with Qiting Fang

    16:16

    In her Design Class, Qiting Fang was challenged to come up for a solution to food waste. The problem she thought to pursue was figuring out a useful solution to all of the tea that is drank in her homeland China. The solution: tea desiccants. Desiccants are those little packets, usually filled with silicone gel beads, that are put into products to help absorb moisture and prevent and damage to the product cause by moisture. You've probably not thought a lot about desiccants but they are ubiquitous in the food and drug industry and makes up a multi-million dollar industry. Although Ting's solution was not brought into fruition, the idea of utilizing what we think of as waste to close the loop on everything we use in manufacturing and food production is an incredibly important one. -- If the content we make on the Eco-Warriors Podcast makes an impact on you, become a sponsor!

    Saving what stores throw in the trash with Anna Sacks @thetrashwalker

    19:44

    Following a stint on an integrated farm, Anna Sacks changed her career from investment banking to working on helping to solve our economy's big waste problems - products that are like new are thrown out by business to make room for more products. Anna posts on social as @thetrashwalker and shares her finds. Some of what we talk about may be incredibly shocking and not for the faint of heart. Anna has found items from pads to live animals that have been "discarded" by various big box businesses. The point that Anna makes is that we should stop over producing and find ways to direct "waste" to different places they can be used. -- If the content we make on the Eco-Warriors Podcast makes an impact on you, become a sponsor!

    At 120 gigatons of carbon stored in the ground, soil is the largest terrestrial pool of carbon on earth. The Soil Inventory Project is building technology and a database that will help farmers, ranchers and land managers be able to measure the carbon in their land. By helping to measure soil carbon and promoting practices that can help capture more carbon from the atmosphere, TSIP is hoping to be part of the solution for mitigating climate change. Sonali Lamba, Executive Director of TSIP, educates us on how carbon is sequestered into the soil and how she dreams of putting carbon not just on the map but also on all of the future products you buy. -- If the content we make on the Eco-Warriors Podcast makes an impact on you, become a sponsor!
