Beneath our feet lies a huge carbon sink. In fact, soils hold more than three times the amount of carbon that's in the atmosphere! It used to hold a whole lot more before we disrupted the soil with certain kinds of development and agricultural practices. Today, many see restoring the carbon that used to be in our soil (and then some) as key to what's needed to avoid the worst effects of climate change. We talk with Jennifer Cooper and Jeff Bernicke at NativeEnergy to hear how it collaborates with organizations to deliver authentic, community-scale sustainability projects, including ones focused on soil carbon. Then we have a brief conversation with Hana Kajimura about why a shoe company like Allbirds cares about soil carbon. We promise you won't look at that glorious dirt in your garden the same way again.

Sustainability Defined is the podcast that defines sustainability, one concept (and bad joke) at a time. Hosted by Scott Breen and Jay Siegel.
Each episode focuses on a single topic that helps push sustainability forward. We explain each topic with the help of an experienced pro, place it within our organizational tree, and help our listeners define what exactly sustainability is, episode by episode.
We have divided our organizational tree into the following seven sectors:
Each episode is categorized under one of our sectors and visually depicted within our organizational tree. The more episodes we complete, the more the tree will visually define what exactly sustainability means.
