SUFB 896: New York City'S Sustainable Stores And What Podcasting Can Do For A Conservation Organization
After I spoke about sustainable and Zero Waste stores last week, I got some listener feedback that I thought I would share because I thin kit's important to tell people where some of these sustainable options exist.
Arleen Paredes, a great Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Listener and a Nurse in New York City, contacted me after she listened to the episode to share the stores that she has discovered that are more sustainable. I share those options with you on this episode.
I also discuss Podcasting for Conservation and how that has changed my life for the better and how it lead me to launch podcasts for other organizations to allow them to share the work they do and the passion of the staff that does the work to their audience.
If you would like to launch your podcast or you would like help with your existing podcast, then please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Zero waste stores are slowly popping up in places such as New York City, USA, Vancouver, Canada and now Devon, UK. These Mom & Pop stores are serving customers that tend to search for a more eco-friendly option in their local grocery story. Apparently business is booming for these shops as the owners of the shop in Devon say they are getting people that are not considered traditionally eco-friendly.
A recent article in the Guardian asks the question: Why Aren't Major Grocery Chains offering a zero-waste option? Their customers are wondering the same thing. They wonder why a grocery store that is based on offering a number of product options do not offer a zero waste option. Instead, some grocery stores offer products such as clementines that are already peeled in a plastic container, individually. Does that really make sense? Not to me it doesn't.
Listen to the episode to get the full details.
