1: Our Sustainable Home – Eric Corey Freed – Living Centered Design

In this series Mindful Businesses – Our Sustainable Home, we will document the process and the choices a homeowner goes through in making their home sustainable. Not all choices are often ideal – it has to be a balance between what are the viable options available in the market, the cost and the associated capability in implementing the sustainable solutions. We reach out to our earlier guest who so eloquently shares his wisdom. Eric Corey Freed – a Leed Fellow, is the Director of Sustainability at Cannon Design, an architecture firm that creates living centered design, gives a step-by-step guide to make a home sustainable. In this episode we talk about the skeleton of the home – what are the construction methods to build a frame, insulation options and energy solutions. Learn more from the one and only one Eric Corey Freed.

70: Re-Air Let’s Goat Buffalo – Changing the Landscape, One Bite At a Time

When we initially recorded this episode in June of 2021, our host Vidhya Iyer and Jennifer Zeitler – Founder and CEO of Let’s Goat Buffalo, really connected and promised to visit each other. But little did either one of them know that in a year their paths would cross again – when Vidhya and her family relocate to Buffalo, NY. The two met for the first time this summer, but bonded like old friends. In honor of our new home and friend we decided to re-air this episode – Let’s Goat Buffalo.

Let’s Goat Buffalo employs rescued goats to eat unwanted vegetation growth! Whether it’s a residential yard that needs clearing, a commercial property that has become overgrown and high-risk, or a park or highway that has become less accessible to the public, their herds are prepared to help! We chat with the bubbly Jennifer Zeitler – Founder and CEO of Let’s Goat Buffalo, on how she transitioned from Human Resources to goatscaping. The term “goatscaping” means grazing goats to manage vegetation growth in an environmentally sound manner. Goatscaping greatly reduces the use of toxic herbicides, and because the goat digestive process effectively sterilizes seeds and reproductive plant matter, they are an ideal treatment for invasive plants. Let’s Goat Buffalo offers grazing services within suburban, urban and rural environments. By choosing natural treatment, Let’s Goat customers are choosing healthier soil, increased biodiversity, and a greener future. Jennifer Zeitler collaborated with a goat dairy farm Alpine Maid and rescued the goats to bring a sustainable solution to remove overgrown brush and weeds. She was also made a How I Built This, fellow, in 2021 by NPR. Come listen now to her journey.
