In this episode, we talk to, Rob Greenfield. He is an activist and humanitarian dedicated to leading the way to a more sustainable world. He is also the author of Dude Making a Difference and the creator of The Food Waste FiascoHe’s been named “The Robin Hood of modern times” by France 2 TV and “The Forest Gump of Ecology. He has been taking on many challenges over the years like cycling around the US on a bamboo bicycle, wearing his trash for 30 days in New York and growing and foraging all of his own food for a year and is currently travelling the world with all his possessions that fit in a backpack.   

During this episode, we take a look at his decision to earn no more than the federal threshold each year. We also look at the 44 items he owned, fitting in his backpack and what key items he cannot go without. He also shares with us his journey from wearing his trash for 30 days to growing and foraging all his food for a year and gave us some tips on how we can help out Mama Earth.
