211: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse

Liz Murphy is the chef and founder at Santosha Nutrition. After 10 years in the hotel & restaurant industry, Liz decided to stop being part of the problem and choose to fight food waste & become a warrior for change. Struggling with auto-immune diseases & food intolerances, Liz took control of her own health and came to the confirmation that the vegan lifestyle is the best for our bodies, the animals and our planet.

Santosha is a Sanskrit word that means contentment, and it's the company's mission to provide education & resources to those seeking to create a better world through plant-based food and environmentally sustainable practices. Through cooking classes, farm to table experiences, private dinners & education about changing the food system, Liz aims to spread Santosha.

In this episode, we not only talk about Liz' mission, but some of the ways we, as consumers, can minimize our own waste!

192: Anonymous for the Voiceless

 

Asal Alamdari is the Co-Founder and Director of Anonymous for the Voiceless; an international group of people sharing standard practice factory farm footage while wearing masks and standing in square-like formations, better known as Cubes of Truth.

As a child, Asal witnessed the ceremonial practice of lamb slaughter on the streets of Iran, which provoked the idea that she would never again consume lamb.

Years later, Asal came across a video of a fur farm, which prompted her to do something about animal cruelty. With her partner Paul, Asal co-founded Anonymous for the Voiceless, and today, the organization has over 1000 chapters and has hosted over 15,000 events worldwide!
