The last part of my conversation with Cait Mizzi involves how to be more ethically- and environmentally-mindful when it comes to your wardrobe. The Fashion industry has been known to have some pretty low standards in developing countries, including child labour and substandard working conditions. The materials in clothes have also changed to be less environmentally-friendly. 

Cait and I discuss the financial and environmental advantages of second-hand clothing as well as slowly building your wardrobe with more expensive, but ethical and sustainable clothing.

Cait Mizzi joins me again for our second part of our conversation on trying to lead a life with less waste. We discuss products that we use every day that come in bad packaging and how I would like to reduce the number of recycling materials I put out once a week as we know many products are not readily recycled.

Check out the conversation.

We strive to live for a better Ocean because it makes our planet healthier. We eat nutritious food because it makes us healthier. Can we have both? Sure. We just need to make a few changes and that can be more difficult than it sounds. 

Joining me on today's episode (and the next two episodes) is Cait Mizzi, who is a Functional Nutritionist and the host of the NOSH Podcast, to discuss sustainable living in regards to the food we eat and how it could benefit our health and the Ocean's health.

Cait dives into why specific nutritional lifestyles may not be the best for our health or our planet; why it's important to farm sustainably (especially when it comes to our topsoil usage), and what strategies we should use to get us towards a more sustainable and healthier diet.

This is the second part of my two-part interview with Jasmine Sanders, Executive Director of Our Climate, an organization that mobilizes youth to speak to elected officials about science-based, climate policy for a livable world. 

Policy is an important tool to fight the growing contributions to Climate Change. Each person and community feels climate change in their own unique fashion. Certain people will feel it more than others and that is why it is important for everyone to speak to their elected officials about fighting climate change and its impact on communities no matter what the political affiliations. 

Jasmine describes Our Climate's work during the past US federal election to educate voters on why it is important to vote "up and down the ballot" and why we need to engage elected officials more once the elections are over. 

I feel as though there is a disconnect between citizens and elected officials after, or between, an election. People do not feel comfortable engaging in one on one discussions with elected officials to ensure they convey what it important to them and how they need help from the representative in government. 

Have you ever spoken to any of your elected officials (local, state/provincial, and/or federal)? Comment how it went or why you have/haven't.

Jasmine Sanders is the Executive Director of Our Climate, an organization that mobilizes young people to educate elected officials on science-based, equitable climate policy solutions that build a livable world, and she joins me on today's podcast to discuss how her career led her to this position. 

This interview is a two-part interview. In part 1 (today's episode), Jasmine tells us about her career and how she made the decisions at specific moments in her life that led her to where she is today. In part 2, we discuss the action that Our Climate supports and how we can better engage with our elected officials through story-telling. 

Jasmine is what I like to call a go-getter. She has been highly motivated throughout her career to find a job that will establish her legacy. In this interview, Jasmine tells me of three specific moments that led her to pivot in her career and how she made those pivots. 

She discusses how she used networking offline and online (through LinnkedIn) to build a support group of professionals in each area of her career. Now she is the Executive Director of an organization that engages with the masses to talk to their elected officials. 

The methods Jasmine used to pivot and build her career are often overlooked by today's marine conservationists. This is a great episode to listen to if you are seeking a career in any environmental field. 

Stay tuned for Part 2 in the next episode.

In my quest to become more sustainable, I've discovered companies that are registered B-Corporations. These corporations strive to be socially, economically and environmentally ethical with their business. The businesses usually use their mission to drive something special such as providing clothes for the needy or protecting the environment. People buy from these companies because they believe in their mission.

I recently found out that a company for which I order their products on a regular basis has become certified as a B-Corp and have teamed up with Terracyle to truly recycle their products into long-lasting products such as park benches. I am a consultant for this company and I can help you get set up with buying these products if you use similar items. Now you know that the products can be truly recycled and reused. 

Here is a link to the list of products that can be used by Terracyle:

If you use me as a consultant, the money will go directly back into the Network of Podcasts so we can work to reach and inspire more people to live for a better Ocean.

The second part of the episode was an update on Ontario's Bill 229, which was a budget bill to help with the economic effects of COVID-19; however, it contains a clause that took away the powers of Conservation Authorities. Take a listen to find out what happened.

Have you ever looked at your dog and wonder "How would you ever survive in the wild?!" I know my dogs are super spoiled and would not survive long in the wild even though they still have their predator instincts. Imagine what the circumstances must have been like when the first wild dogs were domesticated by humans. It was such a long time ago that it would be interesting to see how that would happen now. 

Well, according to new research, there may be a way to find out how and why domestication happens using a small tropical reef fish and mysid shrimp as an example. 

Longfin damselfish curate algae farms on their piece of the reef in Belize, which is in itself incredible. Researchers observed an interesting presence of mysid shrimp above the algae farm. The presence was found in multiple places on different parts of the reef, but the presence was in the same area as the longfin damselfish a majority of the time. 

Researchers conducted a few experiments to conclude that the mysid shrimp are protected by the damselfish while the algae is fertilized by the waste of the mysid shrimp providing a better quality algae product. 

More details on the episode. 

My conclusion: The Ocean Is Fantastic!

When I found out that cow burps were partly responsible for climate change, I wasn't happy at all. I love my steak dinners and beef tenderloin. However, over the past few years, I have been transitioning towards a more plant-based diet to avoid the use of meat and do my part to reduce climate change. 

I should mention that I still eat meat, but a lot less. I grew up eating beef 2-3 times per year and loved it. Meat gave me my protein and it is delicious. I continued to eat it for most of my adult life, especially since I started as I followed a macro-diet to maintain my health. The macro diet tends to require the consumption of more protein to which we are accustomed to maintaining muscle mass and stay full longer. I followed that for quite a while eating beef, pork, chicken, and seafood. I also ate legumes more which led me to enjoy more plant-based food. 

Recently, I followed a nutritional plan that was similar to macros, but focused more in reducing the consumption of foods that would react with my body more. It was a bit of an experiment for me that focused on eating more plant-based and less meat. The result: I lost 30lbs and I feel great! 

I feel great because I am slimmer, but I also feel great because I know I am eating more for a healthier planet. 

I don't expect anyone to change the way they eat because of my story, but I do expect you to listen to the story in this episode because there may be a way to eat meat without contributing to Climate Change.

This week was #BlackInMarineScienceWeek and it was a wonderful week to be introduced to marine scientists from all over the world who are black. These marine scientists may have felt excluded from the traditionally white, male-dominated field in the past, but this week was to increase the visibility of black marine scientists, showcase the great work that they do in various parts of the field with the goal of inspiring the younger generations and the next great marine scientists. 

In this episode, I discuss the new colleagues and friends that I met throughout the week, including the three young and bright scientists that I interviewed for Monday (Ep. 1088) and Wednesday's (episode 1089) episodes. I talk about the role their mother's played in their path to becoming a Marine Scientist. 

I also discuss the importance of black marine scientists to inspire the next generation of black marine scientists using two real-life examples of how people followed their dreams because they saw someone that looked like them be there first and become a leader in their field. 

All of the black marine scientists who were a part of this week have become leaders that black children are looking at today and happy to know there are Marine Scientists that look like them and they, too, can become marine scientists.

In the second installment of my interview with three black marine scientists (and co-organizers of #BlackInMarineScienceWeek) join me and their Moms to discuss how they grew up wanting to be Marine Scientists. 

This part of the interview focuses on advice the Moms would give other parents of black children who would like to become Marine Scientists. Monica (Carlee's Mom) Leslie (Camille's Mom), and Elyza discuss the importance of doing what they can to encourage their kids to become scientists and finding any and every program that will help them pursue Marine Science. 

I also ask the question of how they felt about their kids become leaders and inspiration to others in helping to organize such an important week for all Marine Scientists.

Do you find this interview (Part 1 and Part 2) inspired you to become a Marine Scientist?
