The Tea on Sustainable Living Podcast

Hey y’all! It's been a while, but we’re happy to be back. We’ve come back with a broader understanding of what we mean by sustainability - and what we want it to mean for our show! We want our habits and lifestyles to support and align with our sustainability values, whether that’s getting in more movement or reducing our clothing waste. Hannah kicks off our new experiment by sharing a habit she’d like to change - her phone usage - with the aim of building more intentionality into her free time. She shares that in the past week, she used her phone for at least four and a half hours every day ..read more

#28 | Planning your next trip: sustainable travel series
The Tea on Sustainable Living Podcast
by Brandee and Hannah
1y ago
Are you planning a trip this summer?? (And if not, still read and listen for future you!) With the summer holidays just around the corner, we thought taking a deeper dive into sustainable travel would be fun (and hopefully helpful). We’re breaking it down into stages, and in this first episode of our three-part mini-series, we’re talking about the planning stage. As in, what can we do in this stage to decrease our impact and have a more sustainable trip? From carbon offsetting (check out our previous episode, #7, on flying) to choosing eco-friendly accommodation options, we can do a range o ..read more

#27 | Sustainable banking and investing for the planet
The Tea on Sustainable Living Podcast
by Brandee and Hannah
1y ago
In this episode, we go beyond the immediate impact of our daily purchases to talk about the impact of the money we have in our savings, investments, and pensions. While banks have traditionally been part of the problem by financing fossil fuel projects and not prioritizing sustainable investments, this is beginning to change. Banking investments can have a significant impact on promoting sustainable development and combating climate change. But do we go for a green bank or stick with one of the major players? Why do we make the banking choices we do, and how do we overcome difficulties in cha ..read more

#26 | The role of education in climate anxiety
The Tea on Sustainable Living Podcast
by Brandee and Hannah
1y ago
Were you taught about climate change in school? Are you feeling a bit worried about the state of the climate crisis now? Is there a connection between those two questions? We don’t know; we’re not psychologists or mental health experts. But, according to a 2001 report, 84% of 16-25-year-olds feel worried about climate change, with 45% saying that their feelings negatively affect their daily life and functioning*. Today, we’re looking at this statistic through the lens of education and discussing whether the current approaches in education are supporting children and young people. After all ..read more

#25 | Individual vs. corporate impact and action
The Tea on Sustainable Living Podcast
by Brandee and Hannah
1y ago
Did you know that 11 people in 1 company made decisions that were responsible for 0.45% of all carbon emissions in 2020*? Sure, that doesn’t sound like much - except when you realize that the entirety of Africa only contributed 3.8% of global carbon emissions in 2020**. In this episode, we talk about the difference between individual vs. corporate impact and action and the mindset shift needed to start viewing these companies as things that are made up of actual people. What can we do? What can you do? Well, at the very least, you can grab some tea, get comfy, and hit that play button. Find ..read more

#24 | Can shame be productive?
The Tea on Sustainable Living Podcast
by Brandee and Hannah
1y ago
Feeling a bit uncomfortable after seeing the word “shame” in the episode title? You’re not alone. In this episode, we try and work through some difficult emotions as we explore our own shame, guilt, frustration, and anger when it comes to climate action. We also discuss the role wealth plays in climate change, holding yourself accountable, and why it’s hard to make changes despite having so much information. Can shame and guilt be useful drivers of climate action? Or should we stick with the more moderate approach we normally advocate for? It’s a tough one! So grab some tea, get comfy, and ..read more

#22 | How to declutter better
The Tea on Sustainable Living Podcast
by Brandee and Hannah
1y ago
Feeling overwhelmed by the accumulation of another year's worth of stuff? You're not alone! January is the time for fresh starts, but there's nothing fresh about that pile of bags that’s been hanging around since last year's new year's resolution. We discuss how we can recycle or reuse old items in our houses, where we can take different materials….and when to say fuck it and just throw it all in the bin. So grab some tea, a bag to sort through, and hit that play button. Find our previous episodes at https://theteaonsustainableliving.com. Send us a voice message at https://www.speakpipe.co ..read more

#21 | How to determine YOUR unique climate action
The Tea on Sustainable Living Podcast
by Brandee and Hannah
1y ago
What brings you joy? What is the climate work that needs doing? What are you good at? If you can answer all 3 of those questions (and find a common theme), you’ve just identified your unique climate action. Yay! In today’s episode, we’re taking a closer look at Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson’s Climate Action Venn Diagram to (try and) determine the climate action that makes the most sense for us. You’ll hear us share our answers to the above questions and help each other find where they overlap. (You’ll also hear Brandee’s noisy neighbors because these walls are thin! So grab some tea (and mayb ..read more
