Introduction to “Healthy lifestyle and sustainable living”

 In this episode of the Lifestyle, Travel & Technology podcast, the hosts, Alexander, Garry & Nikky talk about the trend that is growing bigger day after day – Veganism. Nikky, having been a vegan for about 2 years, talks about his experience changing his lifestyle and having a plant-based only diet. Alexander also shares what he does to contribute to fighting global climate change, as this is a sensitive topic that needs increased awareness.  

There are many ways for an individual to do his/her part, even if its just a small contribution. Something is better than not doing anything at all. The hosts speak about what these things are, you can do, from taking public transportation, to checking your grocery’s that you buy and making sure the products you check out, are locally sourced, or at least sourced from a neighboring country. It doesn’t stop there, you can even stop buying plastic bags and bring your own reusable shopping bag, also buying alternative soaps and toothpastes that don’t include micro plastics like micro beads that pollute the oceans, will cut down the usage of plastics. All that and more in this episode, so tune in.
