Michael wanted to lower his environmental footprint, so he built an off-grid tiny house. But when it comes to actually saving the planet, he felt in over his head! He was unsure if his downsizing and minimizing made a difference and wondered about the other aspects of our lives. What started out as simple questions about our personal impact on the planet has evolved into an exploration of bigger themes around living sustainably in a changing climate.   

By giving a voice to researchers, authors, businesses, non-profits, and (sometimes) everyday people, Michael is starting a new conversation about how we can all come together to address our changing climate in a truly sustainable way. In the end, he hopes you'll feel a little less in over your head when it comes to doing your part for the planet and feel inspired to live more sustainably.
