Happy July 4th!

Today we have a special July 4th podcast show. I present a short challenge for you to create your own personal Declaration of Independence. It should be one based on the powers of Earth that follow the laws of nature and nature’s God that were divinely given to you. What are the truths that are self evident for you as you dissolve the bands that are holding you back and move fully into a life of transcendence?

July 4th is about independence and the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. This is exactly what we need to reflect upon today and even go deeper and set some goals for your personal Declaration of Independence. Items of critical importance include your health, control of time, being of service and gratitude and planting seeds that build legacy.

Our forefathers got it right and we can not only learn from their vision and leadership, but their powerful words help guide us forward on this day of independence.

I’m thrilled to celebrate my July 4th podcast with you and wish you a day [and year] of living a full life of not only liberty and happiness, but peace, fulfillment, gratitude and transformation.

To celebrating true freedom!


Episode 34 Jason Pearson

Shopping is fun and purchasing is part of our everyday lives. For major corporations, it’s big business, both on the purchasing and supply sides.

However, if we add up the overall environmental and health impacts of what we buy, it’s monumental. If we’re going to turn the Earth towards more sustainable, it’s imperative that we focus our lens on purchasing. Big companies have entire purchasing departments and some of them are now shifting how they analyze and track purchasing decisions. If they shift their purchasing to embrace attributes of energy and materials efficiency and health impact, huge environmental and economic gains can be achieved and risks lessened.

Since 2013, a new nonprofit organization has been organizing and growing to provide guidance in the field of purchasing. It’s called the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council [SPLC] and many of its members include some of the largest companies in the world.

I’m excited for you to meet Jason Pearson, the President of the SPLC in this week’s Regen360 iTunes podcast show. Join me in learning about the SPLC’s organizational history, its new purchasing benchmark, and other best practices. A huge part of our Regen360 show is revealing the steps that organizations take to not only start-up but how they grow and sustain for the long haul. We exist to help triple-bottom-line organizations to learn from each other as they form and endure.

To lessening the environmental impact of our purchasing decisions!


Episode 26 Brent Constantz

This month’s reading of CO2 is 407 parts per million. That’s sixteen percent [57 PPM] beyond the highest level advocated by scientists. When I was born we were at 317 PPM. Now, climate change is in full swing with melting glaciers, ocean rise, increasing annual hurricanes, floods, and ocean acidification.

It’s depressing to witness a complete withdrawal of a decade of good work as we push America first – even beyond our ability to sustain and provide for the future.

However, in this new era of climate gloom, there’s still many actions of hope. One bright spot is entrepreneur Brent Constantz, CEO of a fascinating start-up called Blue Planet. The company has patented a biomimic technology inspired by marine ecosystems used to build coral reefs by mineralizing carbon into building and highway materials. In full disclosure, I’m pleased to be on their advisory board.

As a serial inventor, innovation comes naturally to Brent Constantz having founded six Silicon Valley companies. He also has over 100 US patents and another 100 pending. He teaches biomineralization at Stanford University.

I’m excited to introduce you to Brent and share our engaging conversation about the future of Earth in this week’s Regen360 iTunes podcast show. Click above to listen in to our dialog.

Here’s to abating climate change through economic and practical market-based solutions!
