Lupa GreenWolf joins us in this episode to discuss alternate ways to be an environmentalist and how every little bit helps. How do we navigate the complexities of environmentalism and activism, particularly if someone is a city-dweller and rents their house or apartment? How do we acknowledge that sometimes people can’t do what other people think they should be doing for activism for many reasons: from disability to matters of food justice? We talk about how it’s important to acknowledge one’s strength, how to be responsible when working with others, and how to be mindful of the small things that can help the planet. We also discuss Lupa’s Tarot of Bones project, and the nature of our own ancestors and mortality.
