It is so simple on there.
But what Michelle mentions during this interview, and what is even more important is what you do after you find out what your Carbon Footprint is.
Your goal is to reduce it, but how?
During this interview Michelle provides a heuristic for you to use as you are going about your day making decisions, and how to choose something that has less of a carbon footprint. You have to think about the life cycle of the product.
And if you don’t know, some really progressive companies are starting to place Carbon labels on their products to show how much of a carbon footprint it has.
Which is really exciting for expanding the number of people who are carbon literate worldwide. May 2023
Is there a place for playfulness within the very serious issues of our day? Michelle Li identifies it as critical.

Creating joyful spaces of learning may be a different approach than many in the climate industry, but it just may help us adopt new habits. Tune in here. Mar 2023
