75: Personal Growth, Eco-Anxiety, & Doing Your Best, with Miah Ké-leigh

Are your sustainability practices sustainable? Not just in terms of how they impact the planet, but how they impact YOU!

Living “sustainably”, “eco-friendly”, and “zero-waste” are so trendy at the moment, but the reality is that these terms are so much bigger than a short-term trend. These are practices that, if they can become a normal part of our daily lives, will have an enormous impact on the planet!

So, how do we do that? By adopting practices that feel good to us on an individual level. If it doesn’t resonate with you, will you really stick with it? Probably not.. which means, it’s not very sustainable! 

This is just one of the topics we talk about today with sustainability blogger, Miah Ké-leigh. Miah, joining us from across the globe in the Netherlands, sat down to talk about her journey creating content in the sustainability space and more.  

One of my favorite takeaways from this episode is applicable to everyone, but especially those of us that love the outdoors. Miah says, “You'll start to realize how much the earth actually impacts your hobbies and lifestyle. And if you take care of it, you don't actually have to give anything up.” For us to continue to enjoy nature and do the sports we love, taking care of the environment is just a given! Sustainable living doesn’t have to be overly complicated. And certainly we ALL can make a positive impact.
