Join us on November 30 for a live, virtual episode of Climavores. Come ask a question about food, nutrition, and eating for the climate.
As a Climavores listener, you know that we spend a ton of time trying to understand and help you understand how climate change affects food, and vice versa.
From beef to corn to rice to deforestation and overfishing, to water and soil, and even to food waste, our current food system is not great for climate change, or people – but that also means there’s huge opportunities to build a better one.
Today we want to introduce you to Important, Not Important – it’s science for people who care, like Climavores!
The critically-acclaimed show, hosted by Quinn Emmett, guides listeners through in-depth conversations with incredible humans working on the frontlines of the future, from climate to COVID, heat to hunger, agriculture to AI ethics.
Quinn teases out stories, tips, and tactics from senators and scientists, investors and doctors, students and CEO’s, and more, helping you to answer everybody’s favorite question: “What can I do?”
In this episode, Quinn welcomes Aishwarya Iyer, founder of Brightland, the wildly popular maker of climate-friendly and delicious olive oils and vinegars, to try and understand what it’s like to start a food company in the climate era, why their bottles are both beautiful and useful, and what California’s drought means for food.
