Episode Info: (0:41) Welcome Welcome back to The Paleo View listeners! And boy do we have a show for you today! This week Sarah and Stacy will be talking about sustainability While this is a topic that Sarah and Stacy talk about often as it pertains to diet and lifestyle, today's episode will focus on two specific pieces to the puzzle Why is sustainability so important What can we all do in general This episode was inspired by Earth Day and the new show Our Planet Stacy's son Finn came home from school recently with a lot of information on what resources will soon be gone, and Stacy is excited to see that this is a conversation even happening at that level So for this week's episode, we are going to get you listeners fired up so that you can walk away with some action items and feel inspired to talk to others about this as well There is no motive behind this episode, other than we want this planet to be here for our children We are going to mention a lot of different things you can do or places you can support and its because Stacy and Sarah are so very passionate about protecting the planet One of the things that Sarah did at her workshop in February was to end the entire event with a discussion on how our dietary priorities can translate into looking after the planet For this week's episode, Sarah looks forward to taking that conversation one step further and talking about our impact as human beings on the planet There are a lot of small adjustments that we can make that can have a really big impact Stacy wrote a blog post on Earth Daysharing ways in which you can not avoid damaging the environment, and ways in which you can reverse the damage as well What can you do to give back to the Earth?
