Episode Description

Jonathan Pereira, the Executive Director of Plant Chicago, will be joining us to discuss the concept of a Circular Economy. In a circular economy, conventional waste streams from one process are repurposed as inputs for another, creating a circular, closed-loop model of material reuse. We'll discuss how this community of businesses, at Plant Chicago, collaborates in this net zero system. The diverse businesses that comprise the community include a bread store, coffee shop, brewery, and more. Their mission is to change the way we, as a city, think about our food and our environment. To develop circular economies of food production, energy conservation and material reuse, while empowering people of all backgrounds to make their cities healthier and more efficient. Plant Chicago offers tours and hands-on workshops. Plant Chicago is happy to host school field trips or even visit classrooms to teach students about the science and social value behind their work.

Eye Love Nature explores through active discussion, various aspects of sustainable living. Each week, a different topic of sustainable living is featured, as Holly brings onto the program experts in various fields. The time for understanding and incorporating sustainability into our lifestyles is now. We are all global citizens, living in a single giant inter-connected ecosystem. What happens in one area of the world, impacts us all. It is critical that we are aware of how to improve our personal health and the health of the planet.

The model of being over-worked, stressed out, and oblivious to the world around us, is no longer viable. We must become engaged and take an active stand. Personal health and environmental awareness are critical elements to our survival.

Tune in for Stewardship through R.E.S.P.E.C.T, Join the discussion, and become a part of conscious, sustainable living.
