Natural Beauty Products

Jul 2, 2018 by LetsTalkTrash

Today's episode looks at the ugly side of conventional beauty products.  We open the lid on the shampoos, lotions and scents we spend our lives bathed in.  We'll hear from Amber Freidman, creatress of 'Solar Infused Beauty'. She shares her conversion from off the shelf products to making her own at home.  We also sit in on part of a Zero Waste Beauty workshop offered in Hawaii by Chantelle Okel. She teaches about making things that are good for our skin from items found in most people's kitchen.  Chantelle's guiding mantra?  If you can't eat it, don't wear it!

Zero Waste Hawaii Style

Apr 29, 2018 by LetsTalkTrash

Small scale communities in Hawaii are moving towards zero waste. We’ll go to the Big Island to hear how the Kalanihonua retreat centre is aiming to close the loop and live in greater harmony with the surrounding jungle.  From using pineapple cuttings to make delicious tea, to dedicating a room to host its permannent Free Boutique, to raiding the dumpster for flower planters, Kalani proves a good test case for how we can apply similar efforts in larger towns and cities. We’ll also take a peek at how a Hawaiian music festival kept over 300 pounds of compost from the landfill by creating onsite compost piles to feed local fruit trees. We’ll learn why the team lead, Scott Layback, had volunteers sort through all the garbage, compost and recycling  at the main entrance to the festival.

Frequency Downshifting from April 12th. My apologies for the recording error. For about 40 mins of the recording starting about 10mins into the show. The recording malfunctions and and there are alot of small skips in the audio. I spent a few hours at home trying to first edit then re-record parts. Without the proper equipment this just lead to my frustration. Eventually I decided I had wasted TOO much time and just laid down the recording as it was malfuctions and everything.
