I’m an absolute podcast junkie. And my favorite genres are true crime and sustainability – this blog is not THAT dark yet, so today we’re talking about the latter.
I find that podcasts are such an amazing way to learn new stuff. While driving, exercising, doing the dishes, or waiting to fall asleep, you can listen to them anytime, anywhere. Super convenient.
Something I love about podcasts about sustainability and the environment is how accessible they make green living. They talk about facts, but they do it in such a conversational and lighthearted way that they empower us instead of making us feel helpless and all eco-anxious.
I discovered podcasts about sustainability just a couple of months ago, and I already have a few favorites – if you don’t see your favorite podcast here, tell me in the comments so that I can listen to it too!

Podcasts on Sustainability
Positively Green Podcast
Listening to this podcast feels like you’re having a cozy chat over coffee with friends.
Kelsey and Becca, the hosts, talk about the sustainable side of food and diet, beauty,…even about holistic dog care.
They start each episode talking about their sustainable “pains and gains”, and chatting about positive news – you know we love some happy eco news here.
I find it really empowering because they address the challenges of sustainability in a very light and engaging way. They don’t want us to feel overwhelmed or guilty about the climate crisis, quite the opposite. They try to show us that having a positive environmental impact can be really, really easy.
After listening to their weekly episode, you’ll have a new and actionable eco tip to put into practice. Just as this blog, Positively Green is about progress, not perfection.

Trash Talking with Eco-Warriors
Barbara Lee, host and founder of Trash Beauty, interviews women leading in the fields of sustainability, eco-bisiness and responsible leadership.

It’s SUPER inspiring listening to such strong and influential women talk about the ins and outs of business and sustainability, about their career changes, their aspirations, and their motivations.
Laura Diez covers every topic under the sun, from fashion and food, to economics, politics, and practical environmental science.
I love her take on each topic discussed, and the conclusion I reach after each episode is the same: everything in our lives has something to do with the environment.
This podcast is made for educated women who like to travel and to enjoy great food, who love taking care of their looks, who are eager to learn, and who want to make the best decisions for our environment. All in all, those who want to live a more eco-conscious life without giving up the things they enjoy.

Intentional with Sedona Christina
Christie, aka SedonaChristina is a YouTuber that talks about sustainable fashion, wellness, self-care, consciousness and sustainability. I love her and I’m sure you will, too.
I love how she talks about the intersection of sustainability and our own well-being, and how sustainability can be found in all areas of our lives. Lately, I’m super into intentional and slow living – you know, savouring the moment and all that stuff – so everything she talks about is really appealing to me.
