3. Grant Brown -- A passion project of spreading positive environmental stories to inspire hope and change

Mother Daughter Earth: an Environmental Sustainability Podcast

Grant Brown, the founder of Happy Eco News, talks about how a family trip around the world sparked his passion project of sharing positive environmental stories with his audience. He is dedicated to spreading the message that there is positivity in the world and so many people doing amazing things to help the planet. He founded Happy Eco News as a way for people to overcome eco-anxiety and instead be inspired to incorporate positive change in their lives.  Grant shares the main trends he has noticed in the environmental movement: banks divesting from fossil fuels, global increase in clean energy, social change and the rise of young people, and the importance of the millennial vote. He also talks about how important it is to vote with your wallet and how doing the right thing environmentally only strengthens a business' brand value. On a more personal note, we look forward to the weekly email that we get from Happy Eco News every Monday, and having that reliable source for positive environmental stories has been a game changer!
