We’re revisiting past episodes that revolve around sustainable and can-do lifestyles, in a four-part series we’re calling “Living Well & Wise.” For our second episode, Charlotte French and Russell Mullin discuss Rob Greenfield’s journey from an average, materialistic guy to a well-known eco-activist and adventurer.L
Rob Greenfield is an adventurer, activist, humanitarian, and dude making a difference. He is dedicated to leading the way to a more sustainable and just world. He is the creator of The Food Waste Fiasco, a campaign that strives to end food waste and hunger. He has cycled across the USA three times on a bamboo bicycle and lived off the grid in a 50 square-foot tiny home in San Diego before auctioning it and raising enough money to build 10 tiny houses for people with no homes. He now lives in Orlando, Florida where he is embarking on a project to grow and forage 100% of his food for a year.
Russell Mullin was a previous editor of Mother Earth News and its sister publications. Russell lives an eco-conscious life with his partner, Mary Beth. From dumpster diving to living tiny, he has toed a fine line between putting down roots and being a rolling stone.
