Sustainable Living and Alternative Health | Listen to this entire show:
On todayâ€™s program we talked with three groups about their efforts to promote sustainability here in the Tampa Bay area. We had the founder of The Bridge Tampa, a non-profit organization that promotes ecocentric living, social justice and personal development, Rebecca Blanco. With her was one of their board members John Arnaldi. Heâ€™s a Life Coach with a PhD in counselor education and recently co-authored â€œEthic Efficacy of the Global War on Terrorism."
Dewey Davis-Thompson, long-time WMNF volunteer represented the Sustany Foundation that supports sustainable practices here in Tampa Bay. Deweyâ€™s on the executive committee of Sustany.
Also joining us were the business partners of Going Green Tampa, Tara LaSalle and Lisa Custer. Going Green was one of this yearâ€™s Earth Charter Award winners for sustainable businesses. Going Green provides information on whatâ€™s green in our area. All of these groups are doing great stuff: forums, films, panel discussions, recommendations, etc., all about sustainable living.
