Spring Has Sprung @ Sustainablejoes

Hi Everyone,

I have 3 exciting things to share with you. Incase you though I was dead, the answer is no. I have however kept my head down over the past few months, had a few failures, a few success, and am excited to share today!

1 – Podcast

Kohji Nagata, Producer of The Bunz Podcast has offered to produce a podcast for SustainableJoes.


“Designing Tomorrow – Creating a sustainable future for all…

Told by the people building it today!”


Thanks Bunz

We have recorded 4 episodes in the last two months, including a conversation last week with Ron Seftel – CEO of BullFrogPower. (Canada’s Largest Green Energy Provider.)

Steam Whistle Brewing has also come on board with support in the form of beer. Therefore in each episode, we will enjoy green beer while having green chats.

Please consider joining the SustainableJoes family with monthly support via our Patreaon page. $5, $15, $25…all contributions are greatly appreciated, and in fact essential for moving forward as we currently have no sources of external funding.

3 – Toronto Premiere Photos


Thanks to the support of many, our Toronto premiere was a sold out success. Smiles were all around, and the room was full of hope.

If you have yet to see pictures from the Toronto green carpet, you can check out the album at this link.

Full transparency, only in my wildest dreams did I imagine the premiere would be a standing room only event. Thank you one and all for making the eventing such a success!

In Closing

Pertaining to the release of the documentary, I am waiting on word from one more distributor. In the meantime I will continue working every possible avenue.

Thank you all for your continued support. I hope you are as excited about the podcast as we are, new episodes bi-weekly.

Gratefully Yours,
