How can I give up plastic? What is fast fashion and why is it a problem? In this episode, I’m joined by Elana Jadallah — a photographer, educator, marketing strategist and environmental advocate for a conversation about sustainable living and plastic pollution. We discussed how you can take responsibility for your personal role towards the current state of the planet and the action steps you can take right now to make a positive impact in the world.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • How photography, marketing and sustainability all connect to form what Elana does today [4:55]
  • A big awakening that Elana had around sustainability, and how we can all go from aware to activated [9:40]
  • The action steps we can take to start playing a bigger role in the health of the planet [21:06]
  • What she considers to be the single most important lesson she’s learned about living a more sustainable life [24:59]
  • Why Elana feels that the donation and recycling systems are flawed [33:13]
  • What really happens to the plastics that are found in our oceans, and how to reduce your own single-use plastic consumption [45:24]
  • Helpful resources to educate and bring awareness to the issues that exist [55:05]
  • The reasons that she doesn’t like the term “zero-waste”, and what she prefers to use instead [59:26]
  • Why giving yourself grace in this process is so important [60:36]

I’m a recovering adrenaline junkie who swapped the wandering for a chase that’s calm — aspiring, creating, and defining my life without letting other people’s definitions distract me from who I really am. While my current day-to-day consists of meditation, reading, writing poetry, and soaking up the final hours of sunshine with my plants, my life’s mission is to help women heal themselves, love themselves, and find their purpose.
