Welcome to the podcast that is working to give you 1000 ways that you can save the planet in under 5 minutes an episode. We will cover energy use, plastics, home hacks, water usage, food and so much more! When possible I'll also give you ways that doing so could save you money.
I'm Patrick Shipway, an ex-chemist, ex-teacher, ex-L&D person trying to find as many ways to make this planet more just and beautiful for my two little girls (and I suppose everyone else too 😉) that I spend my free time trying to nurture into wonderful people. I'm a huge sci-fi/fantasy fan, especially love world building books (if you haven't read Brandon Sanderson you need to check him out), and wish I had more time to hike and camp in the mountains.
How 1000 Ways Green came to be
I've been a self proclaimed eco-freak for years. My wife and I had the original Nissan Leaf and recently upgraded to the Chevy Bolt and put on solar panels. We've been working towards using less plastic and energy in general but I realized we can't do it alone so thought I would create an easy way for others to help so we could all make a larger impact together.
