Welcome to Switch! We want to connect real people to topics they care and are curious about, but without the jargon or BS. Join us as we chat about all things sustainability-related and how they intersect with our daily lives - from eating out, to what we wear, to the latest technology and more. We also bring in guests doing cool things for people and the planet.

Ep 29: Snacking sustainably with Nibs etc
Today we have special guest Chloë with us. Chloë is founder of nibs etc, probably the most sustainable granola company in the world. They are fighting food waste, have plastic-free packaging, it’s refined sugar-free, high in fibre… the list is a long one! They make their products from juice pulp, which is usually thrown away, but still very tasty and nutritious. The brand is not only tackling food and plastic waste, it is also redefining how we think about ingredients and well-known products. It fully embraces the fact that brands can be the tool consumers need to reduce their waste and carbon footprint.
Ep 28: Packaging? That’s noissue.
This week we have special guest Ben Conard from noissue, the online platform for designing and ordering custom, sustainable packaging for your business or brand. Due to laminated inks and dyes, the majority of tissue paper will end up in landfill sites. For these guys, that’s noissue though, as they use soy-based inks.They believe that sustainable packaging doesn't have to be unattainable for brands. You can be environmentally conscious and responsible while creating a premium product for customers to enjoy.We love sending gifts and purchasing online. A lot of companies need that branded premium option so this is something we are curious to explore.www.noissue.co.uk
Ep 27: Smells good, with Coconut Matter
Today we have a special guest - Diane van Zwanenberg - who founded Coconut Matter, a beauty brand which aims to enable customers to enjoy healthy and sustainable living. CM creates handcrafted cosmetics and personal care products based on the health benefits of coconuts and CM’s passion for making a positive impact. During her decades of international corporate experiences, Diane consistently challenged the conventional to develop innovative solutions. She created this brand because she believed in sourcing sustainably and designing for minimal waste to build a lifestyle that truly matters. The cosmetics and beauty industry is a hot topic for us because it’s typically used by everyone. Also, we think that, in terms of behavioural change, beauty could actually be a really simple solution - way simpler than changing your commute or what you eat.We recently did an episode on cosmetics and beauty - there are a number of issues we identified with the industry, such as packaging (and the lack of it being recycled), palm oil (in 70% cosmetics), animal testing, water usage, carbon emissions, and more. So we really wanted to dive into this topic with a brand working better in this space.www.coconutmatter.comReach out to us at www.podcastswitch.com or on instagram @podcastswitch
