For many of us, plant-based eating has been an introduction to a bigger shift of living more consciously. Conscious of how our decisions impact not only our health, but the health of our planet and all of its inhabitants.

That’s why we’ve been dying to do an episode about creating less waste!

And who better to talk about it than someone who’s inspired both of us to go further down the path of zero-waste consciousness: Colleen Patrick-Goudreau!
