1. Threads by Veronica Milsom
Remember a time way back when, with your one outfit that worked for all occasions, and any “new” clothes you got were from cousins, siblings, or friends and their plastic garbage bags chock-a-block with hand-me-downs.
Now, the world consumes 80 billion new pieces of clothing a year. That works out to more than one item per person, per week. So, how did we get here? And what is the cost on the environment? Well, presenter and comedian extraordinaire Veronica Milsom is here to pull back the changeroom curtain on the fast fashion industry. Get your giggle on in an oh-so-educated way, and uncover the green-washed truth that big brands use to get away with fast fashion.

2. Sustainababble with Ol and Dave
Get your LOLs on and learn a thing or two by tuning your ears into Sustainababble. Combining comedy and environmental concern in a way that aims to help solve the mystery of how humanity can help the planet, this weekly podcast is filled with helpful and hilarious subjects that all come back to saving the planet.
The topics range from matters as existential as ‘what’s the point?’ to exploring styles of eco-parenting, and ideas as enticing as … potatoes. Before you crack the question, yes, there is a whole episode dedicated to the snack of the Gods: fried potatoes (or, at least about how chip fat is being used to fuel our engines in a desperate plea for sustainability).

3. Little Green Pod with Fiona Poole
The Little Green Pod is a podcast produced by Australian broadcasters, the ABC, that aims to release bite-sized eco-advice in 10-12 minutes per episode. For busy people - like you, Boo - who know they can do more to help save the planet! Fiona is an exhausted mum-of-two who simplifies her day-to-day mission of reducing her impact and explores the ethics of having babies in a world that lives in fear of climate change!
The perfect eco podcast, created for those living life on a go-go-go grind, crossed over with an eco-friendly lifestyle. A perf, snackable-sized podcast for the busy bees just like you and me!
