9: Sustainability with Jonathan Zaidman (1 to 1 Movement)

There’s no denying that together we all need to start taking measures toward sustainability and conservation. It can be a little overwhelming at times. What can one person do about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? How can I equate my energy use to polar bears thousands of miles away?

 

It’s hard to. Which is why 1 to 1 Movement is rebranding sustainability.

 

Rather than taking a large-scale global approach, Jonathan Zaidman is leading his team to drive the impact home. They are connecting with individuals, primarily students, to teach them easy ways to address all 5 of the core issues in their lives.
