Yes, the word is out!
This month, we’re launching a BRAND NEW podcast (We’ll be the next TED, haha!), focused on all things sustainability, DIY and fashion. For this series, we’re bringing members of the DC area together to engage in important conversations.
Our podcast’s goal is to further foster community and strengthen sustainable practices through a variety of outlets in the Greater Washington area – and beyond!
