In #4, I spoke to Gina from CleanLife, “an Eco-Ganic Consultancy aimed at helping individuals lighten their environmental footprint and chemical load.”
Based in Perth, but with subscribers nationwide, and even a few from overseas, CleanLife offers advice and direction on how to live a more eco friendly lifestyle, and has a directory of eco-product alternatives from food and drink, to clothes to cleaning to skin care products.
I spoke to Gina about how CleanLife came about, the thinking behind it, and the wider scope of ‘green’ consumption.
Here’s another Melbourne happening, a chance to get rid of your crap and get some cash! Seems like a good deal to me…

Well I’ve doubled the number of podcasts! There’s now two.
In this episode, you’ll hear from Chantal and Kyrstal, about the up coming premiere of the Adelaide Clothing Exchange. You may have heard about the original Clothing Exchange that has been happening in Melbourne since 2004, well now its sprouting in Adelaide.
Also while in Adelaide, I visited Chrisie Walk. Christie Walk is a sustainable housing development, just south of Adelaide’s CBD. As well as being built and designed around sustainable design principles, Christie Walk has a focus of developing a sense of community. I had a chat with Joan, a long time resident, who showed me about.

Well the internet and I have come to an understanding, and so the first ever podcast of Up Your Jumper! is now online and happening!
In the first episode, I’m in Adelaide. There I had a chat with Christian Haag, CEO of Bikes SA. He spoke to me about the Adelaide City Bikes program, which is a free bike hire service. Also in Adelaide I’ll take you on a ride on the world’s first ever solar powered bus, Tindo.
