Grant X. Storer joins the pod to discuss everybody’s most accepted vice: coffee. Grant is from Seattle, WA and is researching coffee in grad school. He sat down with Jordan Flagel in beautiful Medellin, Colombia to talk about sustainability, production, and the importance of enjoying coffee - in a very fitting setting.
It's definitely a shock to go vegan when you're used to consuming a large amount of meat - and are even more reliant on eggs, whey protein, and cheese.
It's even more of a shock when you decide to do it, cold turkey, in Belize on a TREE trip.
But I made it through. And now I have a valuable experience to draw on.
Ethical + sustainable lifestyle blogger Zandra Thomson from Life With Zandra joins the TREE podcast to talk about the recent vegan-themed TREE trip that she participated in. She joins host Jordan Flagel, the leader of the vegan Belize trip, to share their experiences in the jungle and talk about what these trips teach about sustainability, as well as how they contribute to conservation. The two discuss wildlife sightings, the oil and gas industry, and what it was like going vegan for the entirety of a trip where barbecue reigns supreme.
