In 2011, host Danielle Vogel left a career on Capitol Hill to start a business engineered to make incremental climate change progress. She had become frustrated with the slow pace of change on the federal level, and wanted to create a space where making progress was easy, convenient, and delicious. On Everyday Enviro, she calls on her network of friends, business partners and allies in the environmental movement to share tricks and tips that empower listeners to think critically about the way they eat, drink, shop and think. The goal: to reveal ultra-easy ways to minimize your personal carbon footprint.
