    Unwash What You’re Listening To: Podcast Edition

    the unwash • guides

    Being conscious of our decisions goes far beyond what we’re purchasing but extends to everything in our lives. From the media we’re consuming, to who we choose to follow on our socials, to what books we’re reading, and everything in between is a chance to make a more informed decision. Unwashing your current cycle of podcast rotations may give you a new perspective, help you find a new passion, or become your latest listening obsession. Here are the five podcasts The Unwash is currently loving.

    Hot Take

    This podcast takes a “no-bullshit” approach to discussing climate change and its impacts. Taking a hard look at political and environmental issues in the United States, this is an excellent podcast for someone wanting to learn more about important political issues.

    Matriarch Movement

    Hosted by Shayla Oulette Stonechild, Matriarch Movement amplifies Indigenous voices by sharing the stories of Indigenous women worldwide. Bringing Indigenous women role models to mainstream media, this is a podcast people of all walks of life can find importance in. 

    How to Save the Planet

    How to Save the Planet breaks down climate change and helps tackle a sometimes hard to disgust topic—hoping to ease fears; how the Save the Planet gives inspiring stories and practical solutions to the climate crisis, making it an issue you’ll want to listen to.

    “Heglar and Westervelt take a “no-bullshit look” at climate change, including discussing the unequal distribution of climate impacts and experiences of climate grief.” – Tom Spangler, Variety on Hot Take

    Hot Buttons

    New to the podcast scene, taking on topics such as fashion trends, companies making ethical and sustainable strides, and fashion innovators, providing an outstanding balance of fun and educational. Hot Buttons gets real about how the fashion industry is impacting the environmental crisis and the realities of facing it.

    Doing it! with Hannah Witton

    Doing It gets serious about sexual education. These honest conversations discuss everything from the realities of pregnancy and reproductive health to LGBTQ+ rights and everything in between; there are topics anyone can relate to and find comfort in.



    Uni makes purchasing refillable body care products as simple and streamlined as possible. This new brand focuses on having a closed-loop system and keeping its products as circular as possible. Uni is a design-driven refillable system for body wash, haircare, hand wash, and body serum. Focused on providing a sleek and elevated product, Uni makes choosing more sustainable options a streamlined process.

    Everist uses ingredients that naturally break down over time and do not pollute water systems. Their shipping cartons and mailers are recyclable or compostable, and they offer a buyback program for the cap of the product to be upcycled for future Everist products. Everist gives you a traditional shampoo and conditioner feel without additional waste. These concentrates are revolutionizing a notably wasteful industry and are a force for positive change.



    August offers a wide range of menstrual products all made from organic cotton and focused on functionality with designs that are far more comfortable for the user. Periods are a much larger issue to tackle than just reconceptualizing a product – August is committed to helping those with periods feel more confident, comfortable and educated in their experience. The brand’s panty liners, pads and tampons are completely biodegradable – making a stark change from traditional period products that take years to decompose.
