How Can We Embody Change? | Rob Greenfield


Rob Greenfield is an adventurer, environmental activist, humanitarian and dude making a difference. He is dedicated to leading the way to a more sustainable and just world. Rob is the creator of The Food Waste Fiasco, a campaign that strives to end food waste and hunger in the U.S. He has dove into more than two thousand dumpsters across the United States to demonstrate how nearly half of all food in the U.S. is wasted while 50 million (1 in 7) Americans are food insecure. Rob donates 100% of his media income to grassroots nonprofit organizations and his financial net worth is kept to a bare minimum. His financial vows are more than a list of resolutions; they speak to his steadfast commitment to live simply and live free. By living in this manner, he aims to show that true happiness, health and freedom do not come from an accumulation of money and possessions. Rather they come from a deep connection to our surroundings, the earth’s resources that are freely available to us all, relationships and love. All of Rob’s extreme adventures and activism campaigns are meant to bring attention to important environmental and social issues and to inspire positive change. They may appear unattainable to some people however, they contain an abundance of simple lessons and tips that can be adapted into any life to live in a manner that is beneficial to the earth, community and self. Through his life, he inspires others to make simple, small changes that grow into great change at a personal and societal level.

I heard about it from a friend and wasn't sure if it was a gardening myth or not. I thought "I better ask Joey and Holly because they would know the truth Catherine A: Q About when should the spring onions start growing the flowers, does it have to be a certain amount of years old. And I planted a spring onions I got from a store by taking the root part. A:It takes 2 years for an onion to get to seed. If you get a store onion it will go to see the first year BUT you do not know what type of onion it is. type meaning long day sort sort day or mid day length onion. to get a bulb you have to grow the right kind for the area you live Q Is now too early for pumpkins to be ready? I have one that is full of orange and seems ready. I want it to last though, how long is too long to keep it on the vine? A: If the pumpkin is healthy when picked and diseases were controlled in the field, the pumpkin can last 8 to 12 weeks - jack-o-lanterns don't fare as well: They last five to 10 days. The best storage temperature for pumpkins ranges between 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. It is best to harvest it than leave it on the vine. Q I have three zuchinni plants and all the flowers seem to be male flowers. I have no zuchinni. Is there anything I can do about this. Thank you Henry How to deal with powdery mildew Donna ask, My pumpkin vines didn't do well this year for many reasons... would you recommend composting the vines ?? or simply toss in the Green-bin for pickup by waste mgmt. ? Or ? A: Without knowing what the plants had it is best to put them in the trash do not put them out for the city to pick them up to put in their compost pile as you can infect other gardens throw compost depending on what the plants were infected with. If you are in the country throw them in the woods. Q What is purpose of curing winter squash?

#008 - Rob Greenfield: Food Freedom + Living Off the Land

Educate Inspire Change With Kash Khan

Host Kash Khan interviews Rob Greenfield, an activist and humanitarian dedicated to leading the way to a more sustainable and just world. Rob believes that our actions do matter, and that we have the power to improve the world around us. Named the Robin Hood of modern times, Rob donates 100% of his media income to grassroots nonprofits. He has been featured in National Geographic, BBC, CBS This Morning, Discovery Channel, USA Today, LA Times, The Guardian, Huffington Post and many more. In this podcast, Rob talks about his passion for biology and sustainability, importance of mindfulness, and how individuals can take small steps into living more sustainably.  The Educate Inspire Change Takeaway: “I think the truth is that money creates the illusion of independence. Being able to buy whatever goods and services we need, we’re able to forget that behind what we spend there are people and other species, there are ecosystems.” “It’s all about looking at the scenario that you're in instead of looking at someone else and saying, “Oh, I can't do that.” Look at them and think, “What inspiration can I take from them into the situation that I have?” 3:38: Rob talks about living the American Dream until his environmental awakening that began in 2011, which was the beginning of his transformational journey. 6:32: Kash asks Rob what it takes to be committed to living sustainably, which Rob says is to live an examined life and he explains what that means. 15:28: Rob states how humans have damaged their relationship with nature, and the importance for individuals to reconnect. 18:18: Rob is the extreme version of living sustainability and off the grid, and Kash asks him to give advice on how average people can make lifestyle changes to become the change they want to see in the world. 31:50: Rob discusses his respect for psychedelics, why he has not used them yet, and shares that he has recently felt called to use plant medicine.  37:47: Kash asks Rob about his plans for the future, which for him is pursuing his renewed desire to get back to the land and have a home base where he feels connected. 46:30: Rob shares that he has not suffered from mental illness to the degree that others have, but he practices a few techniques to keep himself mentally healthy and gives advice to others that might help them reduce or control their mental illnesses.  59:45: Rob discusses how he has struggled to create a healthy relationship with technology, how he has overcome his challenges, and how going offline has been beneficial for his mental health.

Ep. 14 | The Extraordinary Life of Rob Greenfield

The Jai Dev Show

The L.A. Times called him "Different"; UPROXX described him as "the best kind of crazy"...and Fox TV said he was "the world's foremost dumpster diver!" I'm not quite sure how to describe Rob Greenfield, but here's a start:  If you were religious you might say he's 'doing the lord's work'. If you are an environmentalist, you would likely call him a hero. No matter what kind of a human being you are, after listening to this episode I bet you'll agree that he is a truly inspiring brother with a huge heart, a big mission, and possesses the creative brilliance that can cause actual change. In this episode, I talk to Rob about his life's story, his incredible activism campaigns, and life during the quarantine. Visit his website at www.robgreenfield.org

#2 - Rob Greenfield: Being the (Radical) Change You Wish to See in the World

Happen Films Podcast

In episode 2 of the Happen Films Podcast we’re joined by a Dude Making a Difference, Rob Greenfield. You might already be one of Rob’s hundreds of thousands of followers; if not, we’re delighted to introduce you to him because he’s one of our favourite people out there working to make the world a better place. We’ve been fans of Rob Greenfield’s work for years, and had the opportunity to catch up with him while he was under lockdown in France during Covid-19. With this interruption to daily life giving many the opportunity to reflect on the type of life they’d like to lead, it was interesting to hear about Rob’s personal journey. “It’s been about a decade now since I really shifted my life. I was living a very materialistic life. I wanted to be a millionaire by the time I was thirty. Then I started to listen to other perspectives and I just woke up to the fact that my life was not what I thought it was at all. I was buying into all these lies that corporations had sold me on what I needed to do in order to be a happy, healthy, successful human being and I pretty quickly decided that I was going to radically transform my life.” Rob has gained notoriety around the world for some of his extreme campaigns – wearing all his own rubbish as he accumulated it over the course of a month (there was a lot to carry!); foraging or growing 100% (100%!) of his food for a year. Rather than fulfil his desire to be a millionaire, his financial vows see him donating 100% of his media income to grassroots charities and his financial net worth kept to the very bare minimum. Rob is a great inspiration. Not because we should all choose to live this way – he acknowledges it’s not for everyone – but because he lives his truth in a way that fulfils him, in a way that he can be proud of, and in the way he truly wants to. That seems to us to be something to aspire to, for each of us in our individual ways. Enjoy the podcast!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
