While we know our listeners are beautiful inside and out, we all have our go-to beauty and personal care products that help us feel fresh and clean. Dating would be a huge challenge without 'em. However, some of these products harm our health and the environment due to their ingredients, packaging, and manufacturing processes. We'll talk about the sustainability of beauty and personal care products generally and then explore how the world's largest beauty products company embraces sustainability when we chat with Danielle Azoulay, L'Oreal USA's Head of CSR and Sustainability.

There are all kinds of claims out there about compostability, bio-based packaging, and biodegradability. In this episode, we clarify all those terms, explain why they’re important, and discuss the latest trends in biodegradable products. We then bring on our expert guest Susanna Carson, someone who once wore a compostable ball gown, to tell us about her bio-based product companies and what we should all know about biodegradable products.

Armed with this new info, you’ll be sure to impress at your next party - a party that will undoubtedly feature compostable cups (we’re told that parties with compostable cups never break down...except for the cups).

When you think of travel and tourism, what comes to mind? Maybe it's a pristine beach, an exciting new city, or all those airline miles you're dying to use. Odds are, the environmental impacts of your travel are more of an afterthought, but that's no reason to believe they don't exist. In this episode we dive into why a sustainable tourism industry is so important. We're joined by Daniella Foster, Hilton Hotels' Senior Director of Global Corporate Responsibility, to discuss everything from ecotourism to job opportunities for young people around the world.

You, dear listener, may be one of the few Americans who knows that 97% of climate scientists believe climate change is human-caused... but how do you approach the topic with someone who doesn't believe it's even happening? And how many climate change skeptics are out there? We talk in this episode with the man who has the answers to these questions and more.

Ed Maibach, Director of George Mason University's Center for Climate Change Communication, has been researching for the past several years the various ways Americans think about climate change and how to motivate people to act on this issue. He's even developed his own way to categorize the different ways Americans think about climate change, including our personal favorites, "Dismissive Dan" and "Alarmed Alice." Don't be a Dismissive Dan.

We've been told we have the faces for podcasting, but apparently the U.S. Green Building Council thinks we have the faces for speeches too. USGBC invited us to its annual GreenCon event to give a keynote speech on existing buildings, and here for your listening pleasure is a live recording of our talk. It's certainly a timely topic - in 2015, about 40% of total U.S. energy consumption was consumed in residential and commercial buildings alone! Have a listen and forever change the way you see existing buildings. Plus, we start the speech with not one but *four* party facts! The holidays indeed came early.

If you want to see the slides we used during the keynote or want to follow along with them while you listen, please go to http://sustainabilitydefined.com/greencon-keynote.
