About Your Host

After traveling to third world countries and working on conservation projects in South America and the Caribbean, Barbara was horrified when returning home and facing the immensity of the waste problem. At the same time, she saw the disconnect between her previous zero-waste lifestyle in San Francisco and the over-fueled consumptive one in New York City. She realized she had the unique opportunity to make a difference in a community on the brink of change - so she started Trashy Beauty, a beauty company designed to make people rethink what they throw in the trash, and the Trash Talking with Eco-Warriors podcast.
