Today I’m talking to Amelia Barnes. Amelia is a yoga teacher. She also is the creator of PranaVida, an eco-friendly clothing brand, a passionate vegan and a pioneer of the no waste lifestyle. And she's doing it all while raising two young children. In this episode we chat about how we are sold the idea of convenience, but producing unnecessary waste is going to cause a lot of inconvenience in the form of landfill and environmental problems. We also cover how the zero waste movement is largely led by women, the benefits of veganism, how Amelia relied on her intuition and maker skills to start her clothing business and how she got through the worst of her grief when her infant son died.
