Avocado Green Brands, the world's first Climate Neutral certified mattress brand, reducing its carbon footprint, offsetting all of its scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, and advocating for legislation to help alleviate the climate problem.
As a member of 1% For the Planet, Avocado presently gives 1% of all purchases to Trees, Water, and People. They are a nationwide non-profit organization dedicated to improving, protecting, and managing natural resources alongside climate-vulnerable people.
To further help with climate change, Avocado Green Brands have recently launched a new 8-part podcast called "A Little Green" that explores our relationship with the environment. And how we can become better climate leaders in our communities.
"Fighting the climate crisis is at the heart of Avocado's mission. We produced 'A Little Green' to connect with our community on a deeper, actionable way," says Thompson. "After working on this podcast, and speaking with those on the forefront of the climate movement, I've never been more hopeful for our future. We have the tools, and we have the solutions — and there's so much opportunity out there. Our goal is for people to listen and become invigorated about the role we all play in fighting the climate crisis."
Follow along as Avocado's executive producer Christina Thompson examines her environmental impact and what she can do to help create a more sustainable world.
During podcast episodes she will demystify the "obvious" questions that many people are asking these days, while also inspiring each of us to challenge the status quo and become climate leaders in our own communities.
The first episode was published earlier this month and going forward a new episode will be released each Wednesday. Some of the podcast guests include Katherine Wilkinson, an award-winning author and activist, Jade Begay, the climate justice campaign director for the Indigenous-led NDN Collective, and Raj Aggarwal, co-founder of the B Corp Climate Collective.
