“When Green Living Gets Exhausting”
The Sustainable Minimalists Podcast
“I’ll just go ahead and say it: eco-friendly lifestyles can leave us feeling weary, and that’s because living green requires extra time, patience, energy, and—sometimes—financial means.
But the heaviness associated with choosing sustainable choices day in and day out stems from experiencing a trifecta of difficult emotions, too, including confusion, hopelessness, and anger.
Today I bring you a conversation with Cheryl Leutjen. Cheryl is the author of Love Earth Now, a collection of essays that delve into the experience she coins eco-madness. Cheryl divulges her personal struggles with eco-madness as she attempts to navigate daily life as someone who cares too much in a society that cares too little; she offers honesty, too, and chronicles how she copes.
In our conversation today we focus less on concrete tips and more about finding ways to survive and thrive despite experiencing difficult emotions and understanding difficult environmental truths.”

The Big Melt Podcast
Episode 4: On the Grill
“It’s easy to see why some people just ignore the climate crisis. Actively engaging with it all the time is really – really hard. You can end up feeling like you’re doing something wrong just by being a person. So, today, instead of curling up into a little ball and vowing to only eat twigs we figure out how to approach eating responsibly, learn the merits of munching insects, give ourselves a bit of a cosmic hug with Cheryl and bust our climate myth of the week: “Plants and animals can adapt to climate change”. “

Interview on the “Art of Attention” podcast
“Cheryl Leutjen cares deeply about the future of our planet. But like the rest of us, she often feels overwhelmed by the scope of our environmental challenges and a sense of powerless in the face of so much uncertainty. In her book, Love Earth Now: The Power of Doing One Thing Every Day, she uses humor and candor to inspire others to steer toward personal engagement and sustainable hope. In this conversation, Cheryl shares some of the ways she’s found to approach the challenges of “eco-madness” more mindfully — not to prescribe how others should respond, but to invite each of us to find immediately doable ways to contribute to the sustainable wellbeing of the earth for future generations.”
