Welcome to the Green Indy Sustainability Podcast! This is a semi-regular zero waste podcast/audio dive into some of my more complex posts so we can dive deeper and let you avoid reading my novel-length posts unless you really want to! This is Episode #6: Does positivity have a place in the sustainability movement?
The TL;DR: 100% positivity is NOT something required of zero waste advocates. We need positivity (embracing practical accomplishments – big and small) but we can’t let that positivity cloud our reality. Or let positivity be an excuse for bypassing the uncomfortable issues. We’ll talk toxic positivity, spiritual bypassing, and how we can use positivity effectively within zero waste.
