Is it possible to live a life without trash? Could you reduce your waste by 50%? 75% or More?

On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll meet the founder of the “Zero Waste” movement, Bea Johnson who claims she and her family lived for an entire year producing just 1 liter of waste. Nothing about modern life is sustainable, and while Bea’s solution might be out-of-reach for most, it’s something we can all learn and take inspiration from.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Learn the 5R’s: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot
  • How to do more with less
  • Why buying better quality items that last longer is an environmentally responsible choice
  • Why just because something says it’s recyclable (in theory) doesn’t mean it can actually be recycled in reality
  • Getting started tips for “zero waste” beginners

ABOUT OUR GUEST

In 2008, Bea Johnson and her family adopted a zero waste lifestyle; they since produce a mere liter of waste per year. With her blog and bestseller Zero Waste Home (translated in 13 languages), Bea launched a global movement and continues to inspire a growing community to live simply and take a stance against needless waste.

Her methodology is based on 5R’s: “Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot, and only in that order”. She shatters misconceptions, proving that zero waste can not only be stylish, but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings. She speaks at universities, corporate events and conferences all over the globe, including Google, Adobe, the European Parliament and the United Nations.

She has completed five international tours for a total of 150+ speeches in 20+ countries on 5 continents. She has appeared on TV shows and in publications everywhere, from The Today Show to BBC Breakfast. Passionate and optimistic, she has become a guru for many and is a spokesperson for the zero waste lifestyle or, as the New York Times stated, “The Priestess of Waste-Free Living”. She is a Grand Prize winner of The Green Awards, and a French native who currently lives in Mill Valley, California.

Children around the world are suffering from learning, development, and behavioral problems at record rates. Mindfulness can be taught as a secular way to train the mind and body to assist our youth.

Mind-body wellness is typically something we explore as adults, but it’s never too early to start, and the sooner and the better. Our guest this week is an expert on teaching mindfulness to young people, and for any parent, educator, or soon-to-be caregiver, this is a must-listen.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How mindfulness can be described as a quality of intention, balance and compassion as we navigate through life
  • Or as a stance of attention where we not where our intention and state-of-mind is in real time
  • Why social and emotional learning in schools can be a great help in working through some of the bigger problems with developing children
  • How secular mindful practices can be quickly and openly adopted in school systems
  • Why it’s important to take a few deliberate breaths before you leave the house, say goodbye, start or end your day
  • How to have kids identify the eye color of friends, teachers, and you so that it acts as a forcing function for concentration
