Episode 5: Greta Thotberg, Glitter and Ghost Eyes, Oh My! (+ Your Most Sustainable Halloween Yet!)
This week's episode gets a little spooky! Not just because I play a terrifying game with Nat Standiferd from GHOST EYES, but also because I kick the episode off talking about how to have your most sustainable, eco-friendly Halloween ever!
How do you have the most sustainable Halloween ever?
- Bring eco-friendly characters into your costume decision process? Why not dress up as a sexy Green New Deal or sexy Mermaid with a straw stuck up its nose?
- Thrift and DIY as much as possible, putting emphasis on reusable pieces after Halloween is over!
- Use biodegradeable/ecofriendly glitter (like this one!)
- Use a pillowcase for trick or treating instead of a plastic pumpkin
And then, the good stuff; chatting with Nat!
Guest Nat Standiferd, founder of Ghost Eyes, a Chicago-based sustainable and handmade jewelry, accessories and apparel company, joins me to chat about the value of a handmade good, how to put a price on art/your passions, the "trends" of thrift store shopping, and her journey from a patient at Shriners Hospitals for Children to being a bad ass sustainable artist! We also play a game using Ghost Eyes keywords that's terrifying because it's a little cringeworthy and off key (I'm not a singer!), but ya gotta love the enthusiasm!
