Zero Waste Countdown is a 30 minute radio show all about sustainability from a zero waste perspective.
What is Zero Waste?
Zero Waste is a concept that eliminates unnecessary waste from the regular consumer cycle to decrease our impact on the planet as a whole. A countdown to zero waste is a pledge to reduce waste in personal lives, organizations, communities, and even entire cities or nations. While reaching total zero may seem impossible, a countdown to zero waste is a manageable approach to living with less trash.
The Host: Laura Nash
The ocean is on a countdown to 2050, when scientists predict there will be more plastic than fish. Laura is on her own countdown: to get as close as possible to zero waste. Through research, interviews, and personal experiences, Laura is on a mission to produce less waste and leave a happier, healthier planet for future generations.

At For The Wild, we discuss the critical ideas of our time and parlay them into action for the defense and regeneration of natural communities. Key topics include the rediscovery of wild nature, ecological renewal and resistance, and healing from the trauma of individualistic society.

We will join today’s brightest visionaries in this momentous work of reimagining a world where humanity can find its way back into the web of life.
For The Wild airs alternate Wednesdays from 12:01pm to 1:00pm.
Ayana is a lover and protector of wild nature. She was studying Ecology at Columbia University when the Occupy Wall Street movement began. Amid the burgeoning resistance in Zuccotti Park, she created the Environmental working group with March Young to help orient the movement to the realities of a suffering planet. From there she moved West to her beloved Cascadian bioregion, starting an organic farm and wild foods cartel on an Oregon mountaintop. In Portland, she had the fortune of learning from the herbalist Cascade Anderson Geller. Ayana is currently creating an ecological research center and native plants nursery in the Southern tip of the Cascadian bioregion. She teaches about empowered earth stewardship and leads biodiversity enhancement workshops across North America.
