Episode 64 2% for Conservation with Jared Frasier
Jared Frasier is the Executive Director of 2% for Conservation, a Non-Profit Organization that certifies that brands and people are donating 1% of their time and 1% of their money to conservation efforts. This episode covers a lot of ground, hence why it is nearly double the regular show lengths, but it’s for good reason. Jared shares not only what 2% does, but he also covers the history of conservation, where we’re at today with funding and efforts, and where everything is headed to in the future.
This episode is jam packed full of great content and I sincerely left my chat with Jared feeling enlightened and motivated to do more for these special places.
Please enjoy this episode with Jared Frasier!
