Coming Together to Create Change featuring Seleyn DeYarus, Regenerative Rising

The three biggest impacts on the planet are transportation, clothing, and agriculture. Is it possible for all three industries to work together to make the world a greener place?

Absolutely. All life is interconnected and interdependent. Especially food and fashion, since both have major agricultural inputs. Fashion uses flax, linen, cotton, and leathers, and then of course most of our food is raised from the ground up. By leaving the monoculture paradigm behind, we can start having companion crops, like garbanzo and cotton. If these large industries start to collaborate with these types of plot experiments, it raises the bar of experimentation and exploration. What else is possible with an alliance between industry players?

In this episode of the Gooder Podcast, host Diana Fryc is joined by Seleyn DeYarus, Founder and Executive Director of Regenerative Rising, to discuss the benefits of regenerative agriculture. Seleyn talks about why industry leaders need to come together to promote regenerative ideas, common concerns from businesses considering the change, and what she hopes for the future.
