Raising Eco Minimalists

Raising Eco Minimalists

A community for those raising kids who care about the wellbeing of their mind, body, community, & the earth. Living a low waste and minimalist lifestyle can often feel like going against the grain of society. And when you throw kids into the mix? Finding a community of like-minded individuals to learn from, support, find encouragement, and overall who share the same values - at a similar level - can be challenging. This podcast is that community. Join me, your host, a self-described anxious eco-minimalist, every other week as I dive deep into issues and topics related to living an eco-friendly and minimalist lifestyle with kids. But above all, form a community that raises kids who care about the wellbeing of their own minds, bodies, and our earth (and everything that calls it home.)

    In episode one, I talked all about what eco-minimalism was. But this podcast is all about raising eco-minimalists, so it would be a disservice to not include an entire episode on that topic as well.

    In this episode, I talk with sustainable minimalism guru Stephanie Seferian - author of the book Sustainable Minimalism, and podcast host of The Sustainable Minimalists - all about raising kids under the eco-minimalism umbrella.
