  • The N8 Take: Covid-19 is NOT Climate Change

    Feb 24 2021
    N8’s noticing some viral trends on Twitter, again. This time, media pieces are comparing COVID-19 to Climate Change. (Spoilers: they’re not comparable.) We also want to share an open letter that our friend Mark from the Climactic podcast is helping organize: Podcasters Declare. A group of Climate Podcasters is calling Apple Podcast to add a new category: Climate! This would greatly help listeners like you find more thoughtful discussions on climate change in other podcasts!  Go to PodcastersDECLARE.com to sign the letter, and tell your favorite podcasts to join us today!  Support “Waste Not Why Not” on Patreon.

  • N8 goes e-waste recycling (Corporate eWaste Solutions)

    Jan 27 2021
    Surprise! Nature N8 embarks on yet another field trip—this time to a waste recycling facility. Specifically, an electronic waste facility. If you’re reading this, you’re creating e-waste right now! What are you gonna do with it?! Corporate eWaste Solutions is a company that disassembles, recycles, and reuses e-waste for other businesses. N8 goes to their facility in Brea to talk with John (Environmental Health & Safety specialist) and Raymond (Business development marketing) about how you should get rid of your old TV, how the poison in your laptop is cleaned before it pollutes our world, and how companies can turn e-waste into e-treasure.  Support “Waste Not Why Not” on Patreon.
