World Environment day with Vani Murthy

"Everyday is our environment Day". I'm truly blessed that one of the most inspiring mentors, Mrs Vani Murthy, more famously known as 'Worm Rani' agreed to be on my podcast on this 'World Environment Day'. Vani Murthy ji has been living a 0 waste lifestyle for decades now. She literally lives and inspires millions of people to live a plastic free and earthly lifestyle. No wonder she has 289000 followers on Instagram. My visit to her home helped me see practically, how she grows her own food, uses the remains to compost it and has a 100% no trash lifestyle. Each time I speak to her, it gives me great hope that this is the route and the best 'Solution to plastic Pollution'. This year's theme for 'World Environment Day'. Some of my questions were around what she thinks of the current situation with regards to Plastic pollution. Does she really think there is a solution/ replacement for the numerous number of plastic things we use every single day? Children see, children do! If parents are using plastic unhindered, is there a chance for children to lead a path to plastic free living? I loved every perspective she shared. Request you to please listen to the full episode too!
