032: Top Tip Thursday, Tips From Our Guests with Mariska Nell

Guest Tips

In this episode, I am reflecting back on some on the amazing guests that we have had so far on the podcast. I have interviewed so many great guests and wanted to recap on some of the advice they gave to help us on our sustainable journey’s. 

Episode Highlights

Bea Johnson 

Learn to say no.

Max La Manna

Find a way to compost, reuse your food scraps as much as you can. Your leftovers, if you have leftovers or food that you want to throw away maybe there is somebody less fortunate that wants the food. Find another purpose for your food. If you can not compost it then see if you can give it to someone else.

Kathryn Kellogg

Really start to ask yourself questions. I always say, embrace your inner three-year-old.

Elena Kinane

Consumers are very powerful and we need to be aware of that and your decision, every decision that you make count and inform yourself, be an informed consumer.  Don’t believe what people tell you. Double-check, cross-check. 

Marita Peters

Pick one thing that you would like to change and then just stick with that and see how that makes you feel and ones you got the hang of that automatically it will lead you to the next. 

Dina Mustafa

I would suggest go out and find one nice thing around you and just talk about it. Nice thing when it comes to an event when it comes to you found a recycling bin in your area. Find something positive.

Key Take Away

There are so many different things that we would be able to do in our daily life that will allow us to live more sustainable, however, we are all different. What might be something that you view as wasteful could be the only source of food, water or hygiene products that some people have access too? Therefore start with one change that you feel you would be able to manage and that will be the start of your journey. The most import thing is to do this at your own piece and with what you feel comfortable. Living a more sustainable life is a journey and not a race.
