The Hippie Haven Podcast has become a weekly podcast on my list. It goes beyond zero-waste lifestyle tips, although the host, Callee, is a zero-waste activist. She covers a wide array of topics related to sustainable living and living kindly in general. There are vegan topics, gardening tips, tiny house living, and more.
If you’re looking for a podcast that can jumpstart your eco-activism and help shift your mindset to lead a less wasteful life, then Hippie Haven is worth the listen.
If you have questions about veganism, Earthling Ed can answer them. He has a ton of information on his website, youtube, and now his podcast. In some episodes, he answers frequently asked questions, and in others, he interviews experts about topics related to health, environment, and the ethics surrounding a vegan lifestyle.
Even as someone that has been vegan for some time now, I have learned a lot from the insights on Ed’s podcast. It is categorized under “philosophy” on most podcast databases, so if you’re a philosophical person, don’t pass this up. There is a lot of philosophy rooted in veganism, and even if you aren’t vegan (and never plan to be), there are some great takeaways.
As someone that is working hard to become zero-waste, this has been a beneficial podcast. All of the episodes take specific zero-waste challenges head on to give you actionable and straightforward tools to implement them into your life. While the focus is mainly zero-waste, there are some other similar topics included, such as plant-based living, minimalism, and mindfulness.
The great thing about this podcast is that many of the episodes focus specifically on zero-waste topics like bathroom swaps, sustainable clothing buys, being zero-waste with kids, and so much more.
Started by a dear friend of mine, YourYogi is a free mindfulness and meditation podcast. There are some meditation tools I’ve found online before, but many of them are not free, making them less accessible. I have enjoyed YourYogi so far because it gives a more in-depth insight into what meditation is and provides a guided meditation at the end of each episode.
Chloé releases a new podcast every other week on Monday. Right now, more than ever, self-awareness and mindfulness are necessary for our whole-body health. It is easy to get burnt out, especially being cooped up at home like we have been this year. I’ve found that as I learn more about meditation, and the more I practice, I have more control over my daily life and my mindset. I highly recommend her podcast as a stepping stone into meditation or even if you are well-practiced.
