Saving the Planet by coming back to LOVE, again and again

While the world is no more in need of our love than it has always been, it does feel like these days it can be hard for us to reconnect to that love in the face of all the heartbreak and devastation of war, pandemics, climate change and tragedy. Because of this, Bonnie and Madeleine are reaching back into their archives for some quotes and inspiration from past guests on how to strengthen our connection to the heart, and why it's more important now than ever! Show Notes:


Saving the Planet by rapidly transitioning to renewables (with Mark Pop, Founder of Smart Energy Tech)

The idea of creating a heaven on Earth sounds far-fetched, until you start to see the common thread behind global conflicts and societal injustices in our world today: the fossil fuel industry. We are an increasingly energy-dependent world, and as long as there exists a finite energy supply, that dependence will consolidate power in the hands of too few. Once we make our energy supply infinite, by transitioning to clean and renewable energy technologies, the balance of power will shift back to the hands of the many. We will finally be able to decide - as a human community - what is best for our planet. How do we get there? Today, we talk to life-long renewable energy entrepreneur, Marc Pop, about the journey ahead.


How to Save the Planet in 3 Simple Steps (New Year 2022 Episode!)

Since Bonnie and Madeleine started this podcast, they've been working to demonstrate how many different ways there are to save our beautiful planet, and how many "roads in" are available to those looking for a place to start. Still, they understand the idea of tackling climate change at an individual level is daunting. In this episode, they offer their combined wisdom and experience to bring you three simple and foundational steps you can take today to start living a life that is in line with your love for Mama Earth.

Saving the Planet with Vegan Fast Food (with Jeffrey Harris, Co-Founder of Plant Power Fast Food)

We've said it before and we'll say it again. The biggest AND easiest / most accessible way we can have an impact on climate change and protecting our planet is by making more ethical decisions about the food we put on our plate. This is exactly the motivation that inspire Jeffrey to help co-found Plant Power Fast Food, one of the nation's first vegan, fast food restaurant chains with locations throughout Southern California. We talk to Jeff about how it's not enough to simply offer the world vegan burgers, but we need to do so in an ethical and moral way. And when we do it right, it's so powerful. We can reduce suffering, prevent global deforestation, sequester carbon, reverse climate change and simply connect to our hearts more, simply by making compassionate sustainable food choices!

Saving the planet by removing "Sacrifice Zones" (with Maya Van Rossum, author of The Green Amendment)

Our conversation with Maya van Rossum, Founder of the Green Amendment movement, Is a conversation about fighting for something positive and SIMPLE: The right for all people to have clean water, pure air, safe environments and stable climates. Maya discusses the importance of getting clear language into state and federal constitutional bills of rights that support our right to breath, drink, eat and live without facing health consequences caused by environmental degredation. We also approach the topic of inequality and how that inequality manifests via how different communities water and air is being protected. The irony is that how no matter who she is fighting in her work to create protections for these basic rights, she knows she’s actually fighting for her enemy's health and happiness, and all people's everywhere.
