INSEACT grows black soldier fly larvae fed with waste from the palm oil industry that was otherwise destined for landfill. INSEACT's unique protein application in shrimp aquaculture performs more profitably than traditional feed options.This improved performance allows INSEACT to achieve impact at scale, with a focus in Asia. The high-performance protein product INSEACT offers diverts agri-waste back from landfill back into the foodstream to close the circular economy loop. The INSEAD mission is to provide sustainable and healthy food sources for the world through innovative technologies.The founders met at INSEAD MBA, have a background in food entrepreneurship and industrial scale-up, and previously worked at the European market leader in insect protein.Michael is a former engineer consultant at a global top 10 engineering firm where he designed industrial facilities such as   algae production factories. He has also scaled a venture-backed B2B startup and serves as advisor for a VC firm's portfolio companies. As INSEACT's COO, Michael is in charge of operations and insect protein production.  Michael holds a Mechanical Engineering degree from McGill University and an MBA from INSEAD.Causeartist - Social Impact Venture Jobs board - Learn moreCauseartist Catalog and Directory - See hereNominations are open for Social Entrepreneurs to Watch for in 2023 - Nominate hereNominations are open for Nonprofit Leaders Who Will Impact the World in 2023 - Nominate here---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

Carlos Carrasco: From Panama to The Stars Carlos Carrasco has a lifetime of roles on stage and screen under his belt, including four roles across "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek: Voyager." His first role was as the Klingon warrior named D'Ghor in the DS9 classic "The House of Quark." Carlos followed that being a Klingon KCA officer with Garak on a leash in "Shattered Mirror," then jumped to VOY as Bahrat in "Fair Trade," and made his "shocking" final appearance as the alien Krole in "Honor Among Thieves." Growing up in Panama, Carlos explains how he found his way into acting, why he left his home country to pursue the American dream, performing Shakespeare across the nation and his experiences in the New York and regional theater world, and the challenges of finding roles as a Latino actor when he was coming up in the business. Carlos discusses his makeup routines for his various Star Trek roles, memories of working on set, meeting Stephen hawking during the filming of one episode, the Shakespearean qualities of Star Trek, and what Carlos learned from Kristin Linklater that he implemented in his Trek roles. Plus, a hilarious story about Rita Moreno, his time in "Crocodile Dundee 2", "Return of Super Fly," "Speed" with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock and the drastic changes that happened during the production of that film, and more!

This typically involves using only natural materials to bury the body and avoid using any toxic chemicals or processes.There are many different reasons why someone might choose a green burial instead of a traditional burial. Some people believe that this type of burial is more respectful of the natural world and can help to preserve the environment.Others simply prefer the simple, natural process over more traditional funerary practices.What is a Tree Burial?Our bodies are filled with hyper-rich nutrients that go to waste when cremated or buried in a casket. Finally, there's a better way to repurpose our bodies by returning them to the earth to feed and nourish forest ecosystems for decades.Transcend's Tree Burial™ process utilizes a unique fungi-enriched soil mixture that facilitates a direct connection between the nutrient-rich body and the root system of the tree planted above.In this way, the body can biologically become the tree, creating and sustaining life for everything around it.About Matthew KochmannFrom a young age, Matthew Kochmann faced medical and mental health challenges that forced him to confront his own mortality, awakening a lifelong fascination with how humans relate to the mystery of death.In an attempt to integrate a more accepting approach, he turned to nature… Matthew found solace and inspiration in the central tenets of the American Transcendentalism movement forged by Emerson along with the ancient Vedic philosophies of India: that all living things are interconnected, even after death.While poetic, he was emboldened to learn that this is also scientifically true in the natural world; when an organism is returned to the earth, it creates more life for everything around it.With a Landscape Architecture degree from Cornell University, a track record of success as a serial entrepreneur, and experience as a land developer, it's only natural that Matthew is bringing Tree Burial into existence.Creating values-aligned impact for the collective has always been his primary aspiration. Most notably, as employee #7 at Uber, he led the charge in transforming NYC's antiquated and offline taxi industry, only to ultimately walk away from a life-changing amount of equity over ethical concerns.Matthew's unique blend of regulatory and real estate knowledge, infused with a spiritually-inspired passion for the environment makes him the ideal steward for the Future Tree movement.About TranscendTranscend is the first company dedicated to reforesting the world by planting people (and pets) as trees when they die. Launching in October 2022, Transcend's unique Tree Burial™ process is a climate change solution that repurposes the most life-giving natural resource known to mankind: our bodies.A bold, carbon negative alternative to caskets and cremation, Tree Burial creates life from death by returning people to the earth naturally so their biology can literally live on as a tree.Transcend is pioneering the Future Tree movement to help people cultivate a healthier relationship with their mortality and the planet. By using nature as a vehicle, Tree Burial reminds us that endings are always beginnings.Causeartist - Social Impact Venture Jobs board - Learn moreCauseartist Catalog and Directory - See hereNominations are open for Social Entrepreneurs to Watch for in 2023 - Nominate hereNominations are open for Nonprofit Leaders Who Will Impact the World in 2023 - Nominate here---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

This could prevent millions of trees being cut each year. After many years of hardship and continuous technical improvements, the first large scale factory is opening its doors in 2023 in the PhilippinesMichiel loves a challenge , if it is in the ring, sailing to Brazil or solving pressing environmental problems. He learned early on that avoiding pain and discomfort at all costs doesn't get you anywhere and if you think it's worth it; just start and get it done. The diminishing forest where one of the challenges he considered that made perfectly sense to find a solution to. First alone and later with a brilliant team, he developed an alternative for wooden one-way export pallets by compressing coconut husk waste -that is often just burned - into strong, circular and affordable CocoPallets.About CocoPalletCocoPallet, a transport pallet pressed from only the coconut husk which is normally wasted. Circular and 100% bio-degradable. At least 25% cheaper than the millions of wooden one-way export pallets from South-East Asia we intend to replace. Preventing millions of trees and billions of coconut husks to be wasted. CocoPallet offers coconut farmers additional income, lower cost and CO2 in the supply chain and at the end the CocoPallet can be milled and used as high quality soil improver for agricultural purposes. Powered by: The Social Impact Jobs board - Learn more---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

This week's episode is a replay of Episode 76: From Lawyer to Chocolate Maker: How Shawn Askinosie Found His Calling. Sure, quitting is easy if you've always hated your job. But what if you used to love it? What if you loved it for many years? What if you were really, really good at it? I'm so excited about this week's episode with the amazing Shawn Askinosie. Shawn walked away from a very successful career as a criminal defense attorney, a job he used to love. Until he didn't. He realized that the career he once loved was putting him into an early grave and that it was time to do something else. Shawn is now the founder of Askinosie Chocolates, named by Forbes as “One of the 25 Best Small Companies In America.”  He was also named by O, The Oprah. Magazine, as "One of 15 Guys Who Are Saving the World." No big deal. He spends his days traveling between 4 continents to directly source his cocoa beans from farmers, where he offers them above Fair Trade prices, open books, and a share of his profits. He has created an inspiring company that not only gives back directly to the farmers but his community as well. His book - Meaningful Work: The Quest To Do Great Business, Find Your Calling And Feed Your Soul, co-written with his daughter, Lawren Askinosie, published by Penguin Random House is a #1 bestseller on Amazon. I got to chat with Shawn about how he walked away from a career he loved and how he figured out what he should do next. Here is what we chat about in this episode: Do the deep work and figure out who you truly are. Look for those thresholds. Be vulnerable with the people in your life. And so much more!

Pas de cacao durable sans soutien aux planteurs

À l'heure où les nouvelles campagnes cacao ivoiriennes et ghanéennes vont s'ouvrir (le premier octobre prochain en Côte d'Ivoire et au Ghana), la question du prix payé au planteur est plus que jamais sur la table. Mais celle aussi de la durabilité, avec de nouvelles exigences de l'Union européenne qui se prépare à interdire l'importation de cacao issu de terres déboisées après 2020. Qui doit payer pour un cacao durable à grande échelle ? Anicette Asseu égrène les certifications que possède sa coopérative en Cote d'Ivoire la Socaan. Des certifications qui demandent beaucoup de travail. « Nous sommes certifiés RA (Rain Forest), nous sommes certifiés Fairtrade, à chaque fois, il y a des contrôles. Donc si jamais nous ne respectons pas, nous aurons d'énormes difficultés », explique Anicette Asseu, puis elle ajoute : « On essaie de respecter les normes, la durabilité, on contribue aussi à la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique en reboisant. Donc, je pense que le prix qu'on paye pour le cacao durable n'est pas suffisant, car nous faisons beaucoup d'efforts. » Et c'est parce que les planteurs font déjà beaucoup d'effort que Mohamed Ouedraogo, président du conseil d'administration de cette coopérative qui regroupe 3 000 membres, estime que la prime versée par les broyeurs n'est pas assez élevée. « Notre requête, c'est que le cacao durable que nous faisons reçoive plus de prime », dit-il. « Donc si les gens peuvent augmenter de cent francs la prime de certification, ce sera bien. Aujourd'hui, nous ne touchons que 60 francs. » ► À lire aussi : Quels leviers pour faire remonter les prix du cacao ? Mieux rémunérer le travail  60 francs CFA par kilo de fèves certifiées, soit moins de 10 centimes d'euro. Pour exiger plus en matière de durabilité, les primes ne suffisent pas, explique Michel Arrion, directeur exécutif de l'Organisation internationale du cacao. « On se rend compte enfin que le prix du cacao est loin du coût économique du cacao. C'est-à-dire que quand le cacao produit des effets néfastes sur l'environnement, ou qu'il est accompagné de pratiques comme le travail des enfants ou le travail mal rémunéré, tout cela a un coût économique. » Pour que la durabilité devienne réalité, les consommateurs qui achètent le cacao, mais aussi les industriels qui le transforment, sont appelés à ne pas se dérober. « Nous sommes conscients que certains jouent un double jeu », assure Yves Ibrahima Kone directeur général du Conseil café cacao en Côte d'Ivoire. « Certains aussi parmi les industriels regardent dans la même direction que nous. Si le planteur n'est pas bien payé, il va arrêter les fèves de cacao, et il fera autre chose. Il n'y aura plus de chocolat. » ► À lire aussi : Cacao durable : industriels et producteurs en quête d'un nouveau partenariat Et c'est avec ceux-là que la Côte d'Ivoire entend désormais avancer. Sans nouveau partenariat, sans sursaut collectif, et sans un peu plus de bonne foi de part et d'autre, pour reprendre les mots d'un acteur de la filière, le concept de cacao durable risque de rester cantonné aux expériences actuelles qui ne concernent que de faibles volumes.

A big believer of businesses and entrepreneurs as driving force for human development. Fahad believes as rationale human beings we don't buy or invest in "things".

“We want to make sure the contribution we make is a positive one in the world.” Joanna Jaramillo (33:57-34:00) You've probably seen Wholesum's ripe, organic Poppies or Darlings snacking tomatoes, Persian cucumbers, or bright and crisp bell peppers when shopping for groceries, but did you know Wholesum's produce is 100% fresh, organic, responsibly grown, they use 100% renewable energy on their farms, and the company has a decade under their belt of being fair trade certified? A true, progressive leader in the agriculture industry, Wholesum was one of the first to dedicate their entire farming portfolio to organic food back in the 90's!    Their commitment to making a positive impact on our planet is even more impressive. Wholesome has committed to the U.N.'s Sustainable Development Goals 5 and 12, and they publish a report every year to showcase their successes, but also be held accountable by all stakeholders as a way to identify opportunities for improvement. It's not too often you find a company who's so willing to be criticized by all of their stakeholders, whether it's the communities they work in, their employees, their suppliers, customers or consumers. The report captures data across the board of Wholesum's farming operations, such as their energy use, renewable and non-renewable outputs, water recirculation, waste management ,recycling, social impact, gender equality and the impact of fair trade on their farms.    “What moved my soul when I experienced Wholesum was to see how these fair trade premiums were spent, and to see how this one farming operation, this one brand, the cucumbers I buy at Whole Foods, turn into real funds that the workers can vote on where they want their money to be spent.” Lori Taylor (3:13-3:38)    In 2018, Wholesum made a commitment to the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, which is when they decided to commit to Goal 5 and 12 of the Sustainable Development Goals. We've talked to several stakeholders in the UN's SDGs in previous episodes, but if you aren't familiar, these are a set of 17 goals developed by the United Nations to get businesses and government agencies to collaborate on solving some of the world's biggest problems. The 17 SDGs are:  No poverty  Zero hunger  Good health and well-being  Quality education  Gender equality  Clean water and sanitation  Affordable and clean energy  Decent work and economic growth  Industry, innovation and infrastructure  Reduced inequalities  Sustainable cities and communities  Responsible consumption and production  Climate action  Life below water  Life on land  Peace, justice and strong institutions  Partnerships for the goals    Although Wholesum's core values align with each of these goals, and they want to ensure they are measurably making an impact towards all 17, they decided to focus on Goal 5, gender equality, and Goal 12 responsible consumption and production, because they knew they could make a direct impact towards these on their farms. As they continue to report yearly and build a roadmap of progress, they can take on more of the SDGs and incorporate them into their operations.    “Gender equality is a basic human right. We need to make sure that we, as a company, are respecting both men and women. There have been inequities for women in farming in the past, and so we need to shed light on those and be the progressive company we are and move forward to acknowledging these problems and doing something about it.” Joanna Jaramillo (23:18-23:53)   There are many ways Wholesum is ensuring gender equality is available across their entire operation. For one, they're focused on providing equal pay, equal opportunities, and no violence or harassment is promoted in the company culture. They're also well aware of the duties many women have in their household when they're off from work, so Wholesum is starting projects to promote work-life balance.   During one of their needs assessments, they found that many women weren't going to the doctor regularly because they didn't want to take time off work or were waiting until they felt sick. Wholesum is now setting up mobile clinics on site so women can have their regular check ups and are educated on the importance of preventative care. They're also building certain pathways for personal development and promoting from within the company for more women to have leadership opportunities. Even Joanna herself started as the Marketing Coordinator in 2018 and is now the Marketing Manager!    “It's a very difficult task to go through each of these 17 goals and determine how to work towards achieving them all at once.” Joanna Jaramillo (17:49-18:01)   To make an impact with SDG 12, Wholesum looks at all of their inputs, all the way down to the twine they use on their cucumbers or the labels that go on their tomato packages. Everything is classified as renewable or nonrenewable and by measuring these facts, they're able to identify what they can replace or reduce. One of Joanna's responsibilities is looking into packaging design, which can be a challenging and complex situation. For example, she found a packaging item that was very sustainable, but when they tested on their product, the shelf life majorly reduced, which would lead to more food waste – a packaging paradox.    Wholesum has been actively creating a positive impact and evolving their company for three generations, ever since their first tomato seed was planted in New Mexico. Hopefully other companies and stakeholders are inspired to create their own changes and work towards goals like the SDGs by following Wholesum's lead in progressive impact.

In this episode, David sits down to speak to Andy Hawkins who helps companies to get B Corp certification. That designation shows that a business is meeting high standards when it comes to social and environmental performance. To secure and keep it companies are monitored using verifiable performance data. Andy explains what his work involves, and the positive impact B Corp is having on the world and the companies that strive to achieve the standard. He set up a “couch to 5K” style process, which he has successfully taken 130 businesses through in just 20 months. When you use B Corp companies you know you are dealing with ethical firms. B Corp covers social and environmental impact. Any type, size of business, in any country can use B Corp to improve their ethics. Most company owners think they run an ethical business. It is only when you ask them – How do you know that is the case? That they realize there is room for improvement. People want to work for and stay with B Corp companies. Stop being afraid of selling. If you have what someone needs, why would you not want to give them the chance to buy it? Only 700 companies in the UK meet the B Corp standards. There is currently a private member's bill going through parliament that will make meeting high ethical standards a legal responsibility. Seek and act on the advice you get from people that you trust. Be resilient. Don't give up and always have a plan B. Invest in yourself. Take time out to regularly recalibrate.   BEST MOMENTS ‘B Corp is to business what Fairtrade is to coffee,' ‘B Corp is not a once and forever destination, it is an ongoing process.' ‘All round resilience, being able to get back up when you are knocked down, is important.' ‘If you are looking at making a big change in your life, understand what motivates you.'   EPISODE RESOURCES Website - https://businessonpurpose.uk/ Ikigai book - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ikigai-Japanese-secret-long-happy/dp/178633089X/ https://betterbusinessact.org/   ABOUT THE SHOW People with purpose make a difference. Imagine a world where more people can just get their purpose out of them, into a plan and then actually make it happen. What a world that would be - People everywhere finding meaning and harnessing that to bring inspiration and energy to each and every day, changing lives for the better. But no one ever achieved anything on their own - we all have something unique to bring and that means we all have to play our part - if we want to go far, we have to go together and lead or serve towards a vision of the world we want to see.

Ethnotek is so much more than just a bag! It's a celebration of culture, it's a community, it's a global movement!The one thing all of the Ethnotek weavers and artisans have in common is the fact that their craft is disappearing. Every year they see less and less local demand for their fabrics due to low yield and long lead times.Traditional techniques are quickly being replaced by machines and factory labor in major cities, drastically reducing the number of jobs and industry in the regions where it is needed most.By creating new demand for these traditional handcraft practices, the brand and its customers are in a sense forging an effort to keep them alive and well and in the same villages from which they came.The last and most important part of the mission is to spread the idea that we should all celebrate each other's differences more often. The only way culture can stay alive is if we keep it that way.Culture runs deep; from the tribes of Yunnan Province to the Subways of New York City. From the Ghats of Varanasi to the Cafes of Paris. To ensure the survival of these incredibly interesting differences we must learn about them and retell their story. This is why we see our bags as a flag. A flag that you wave which says, "I care"​.Check out Ethnotek's Sourcing Roadmap: This is an article to describe Ethnotek's internal ethical guidelines for working with artisans and is to provide suggestions to designers & business owners who are looking to practice Cultural Inclusion in their supply chain."We in no way claim to be experts in this department and are still learning, but we do have over 10 years of first-hand experience and not only does our system work well, everyone is happy and having fun in the process!"Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Powered by: ReFi Jobs - ReFi jobs curates the best new regenerative finance jobs at leading companies and startups - Learn more---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

“We've all seen lots of steamy sex scenes. Just to be clear, I'm talking about regular old movies, rather than porn. While some said sex scenes are subtle, artsy, and shrouded in shadows, others are frantic and hilariously awkward, and still others straddle the line (pun intended) between erotic and graphic, or even unexpectedly shocking. And then there are plain old make out or kissing scenes. But regardless of the type of intimacy being portrayed on-screen, or its intended flavor, there is always a behind-the-scenes reality that actors must contend with. While some actors feel very comfortable with one another, some do not. While one actor may feel great about a given scene, another may take issue with certain parts. One actor may have problems with the way their intimate scene partner is interpreting things. And so on, and so forth. Kinda like in real life, y'know? And, as most of us hopefully know by now, no one likes to have to say, “me too.” Enter the intimacy coach, AKA the intimacy coordinator. It's not a job with a very long history (just yet). But the role can be understood as addressing the following question: how do you ensure the continual consent of all parties involved in a work environment where consent (or lack thereof) isn't necessarily scripted?” --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

Coffee 101
A Coffee Certification Masterclass

In this episode, Kenneth sits down with Mark Inman of Sustainable Harvest to talk about coffee certifications. They discuss each of the recognized certifications, explaining what they mean and the standards the farmers have to follow to gain each of them. Understanding all of this will help you to choose a coffee that fits in with your values and the way you want to live your life.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Organic coffee is about more than chemical free farming. It is designed to support the environment. ROC certification encourages a more advanced level of organic farming. For small farms, it is cost prohibitive to go through the certification process. If you see certifications that are different from those discussed in the show, the chances are they are misleading or even fake. Rainforest Alliance is focused on farm safety and the preservation of biological species. Fairtrade certification creates a minimum floor price to ensure small farmers can make a profit. Coffee is severely underpriced. Fairtrade America is different from Fair Trade USA. Carbon neutral certification is still being developed. Direct trade is not as good as it sounds. Mark explains why.   BEST MOMENTS ‘USDA organic is an offshoot of just the organic certification. ´ ‘There are a handful of chemicals that are systemic that go into the root system and attack the oils of the coffee.' ‘Coffee continues to be a crazy good foodie bargain.'   EPISODE RESOURCES USDA's National Organic Program standards : (https://www.ams.usda.gov/about-ams/programs-offices/national-organic-program) Rainforest Alliance standards: https://www.rainforest-alliance.org/ Bird Friendly Standards: https://nationalzoo.si.edu/migratory-birds/bird-friendly Fair Trade International (Fair Trade  America) - https://www.fairtrade.net/standard Fair Trade USA - https://www.fairtradecertified.org/business/standards   GUEST RESOURCES Website: https://www.sustainableharvest.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sustharv/ on Instagram for Sustainable Harvest Mark Inman Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/norcalglobetrotter/ on Instagram for Mark Inman   VALUABLE RESOURCES Award-winning single-origin specialty coffee: https://umblecoffee.com/ You're disciplined and high achieving. You never settle. Shouldn't the fuel that helps you reach your goals be held to those same standards? Instead of a crash-inducing cup of jo, you need coffee with optimal antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. A coffee so good that you can drink it black. At Umble Coffee, we only roast specialty-grade arabica coffee from around the world with cupping scores 84 and above. Don't sabotage yourself in pursuing your goals - drink coffee that tastes better and is better for you. No crash, great taste, and better long-term health benefits. That's Umble Coffee.    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/umblecoffee/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/umblecoffee/ Twitter:  https://mobile.twitter.com/umblecoffee   ABOUT THE HOST As a coffee lover, physician, chemical engineer, serial entrepreneur, competitive runner, writer, and family man, Kenneth knows what it's like to push yourself to achieve goals very few accomplish. He's one of the best specialty coffee roasters in the United States as he's a multi-year US Coffee Roasters' Competition Finalist. He created Umble Coffee Co with the belief that, if sourced and roasted right, coffee can taste phenomenal and be good for you. “Life's too short to drink bad coffee.”   Podcast Description Coffee 101 is an educational show on all things coffee.
