Every Wednesday on the Hippie Haven podcast, learn how to live harmoniously with yourself, others & the planet. We talk about all things hippie, including eating vegan, reducing your trash, starting an ethical business, eco-activism, gardening, beekeeping, tiny house living, and so much more.
Today's guest is Brenden Fitzgerald, CEO of planet protein makers of clean, vegan and low waste protein bars and protein powder, and he's the other half of the Sustainable Duo with his life and business partner, Carly Bergman, who's been on the podcast herself in the past. You might also know Brenden on Instagram as the @The_Sustainable_CEO. He's a really cool dude. Brenden will be sharing his journey from marine to vegan activist and business owner, his thoughts on toxic masculinity and meat eating plus debunking a few of the most common myths around veganism.
The Hippie Haven Podcast is hosted by Callee - a zero waste activist & business owner. Formerly a translator for the US Navy, Callee was honorably discharged as a conscientious objector in 2017 following an episode of severe depression & alcoholism fueled by not living in alignment with her core values. That same year, at age 23, she started Bestowed Essentials, a handmade line of eco-friendly beauty & home products that are now stocked in over 100 stores around the US & Canada. Callee began hosting this free podcast in August 2018, as well as speaking at events and teaching educational workshops across the country, as part of her life mission to arm you with the knowledge & tools you need to spark positive change in your community. In December 2019, she opened The Hippie Haven in Rapid City, South Dakota - a zero waste retail store & community space with a little free library - the first of its kind in the state. She’ll be opening a second Hippie Haven in Salem, Oregon in Feb 2021.
