Sustainable living made sweet ;)
This week, we’re sitting down with Kat, aka Sweet Sustainability, who is a slow-living, ethical and sustainable fashion blogger and advocate. We explore the benefits and what it means to “live an intentional lifestyle,” offering tips to spot green-washing, easy lifestyle swaps and more conscious fashion suggestions. From two young people to another, this episode aims to help you break down common barriers, so that you can become the best global citizen you can be.
“Everyone has a role to play to solve the climate crisis; it’s not a core career path but finding ways to incorporate this within our lives is so necessary.” So, how are you gonna get involved?
