Here is the killer question:
“How can we make a difference? To ourselves, our children, and to the lives of others?”
A reusable water bottle that leaves a negative CO2 footprint on this planet – is it even possible? Turns out it is, and in this episode of change we talk to Alex Nash who, together with her husband (another Alex), started Yuhme; a company creating reusable water bottles made from sugarcane. And not only are they providing the market a product that is absolutely amazing but for each bottle sold they also give 6 months of clean drinking water to someone in need.
Why is plastic so bad for you and what is it actually doing to our planet? How can we create new trends that could turn everything around? Can we even feel consciously good about buying anything anymore or do we have to shut that lifestyle down for good?
As our conversation went on I felt my hope for this planet grow, and I can’t help but feel like we’re starting to really head in the right direction. There are so many possibilities to tap into and so many new areas of knowledge, creativity, and creation to explore. And with people like Alex and Alex around; people that take of their time, energy and passion to do something better for this world, there really isn’t anything we can’t do.
So tune in to get inspired and to learn a thing or two about the plastic and water industry. And, most importantly, learn how you can be a hero as a consumer!
