zero waste & vegan Q&A with Summer Hanson! | into intentional podcast no. 19

July 3, 2019


Summer is back on the show this week! She's a co-owner of Eco Collective, a zero waste store based in Seattle, and most importantly, a good friend, the kindest soul.


We answered a bunch of questions that everyone sent over on instagram about all things vegan x zero waste living! 


And even though we both live similar lifestyles, being both vegan zero wasters in the same city, it turns out our answers/solutions to each of these problems are so different! I think that goes to show that there are so many wonderful ways to live a low waste plant based lifestyle, and that means there's certainly hope that you'll also find a solution that works for your lifestyle even if the ones that we use aren't available/work for you! Living intentionally can be both abundant, freeing, and a means of getting to know yourself on an even deeper level.
