Episode 39. Eco-Friendly Habits And Choices

A quick audio note: we experienced some recording difficulties with this episode, which our editor Rosie was able to work her magic on. That being said, if you notice any difference in volume levels between the two of us, we apologise and hope it doesn't detract from your listening experience. 

Making more eco-friendly lifestyle choices has been at the forefront of our minds this year. In this episode we’re delving into the habit changes we’ve been making, as well as the areas of our lifestyles we’d still like to work on. 

From daily commitments, to clothes and ‘voting with your wallet’, this episode is full of recommendations and conversation around the things we can all be more conscious of when it comes to the environment. 

Plus we share the mantra which we’ve adopted to make sure that we’re getting the full life cycle out of everything we own. 

We hope that you’ll enjoy this episode, and if you have any recommendations for us about more eco-friendly choices we can make, tweet us on @LetsDiscussShow or individually on @CocosTeaParty and @MonicaBeatrice
