The latest edie podcast – and the last one before edie Live next week – sees edie  travel to the outskirts of Paris to uncover how Villages Nature Paris tapped into geothermal energy to deliver on a holistic 10-step sustainability framework.

During the trip, edie sits down with the park’s corporate and social responsibility manager Emilie Riess to discuss how geothermal energy is just one sustainability aspect of a park hoping to reduce emissions, reuse waste and enhance biodiversity.

Later on in the episode, edie travels to London to visit Ecover’s pop-up “rubbish café”, which marks the launch of a new washing-up liquid range which comes in a new 100% recycled and 100% recyclable bottle. At the café, edie speaks to Ecover’s long-term innovation manager Tom Domen on what innovations to look out for in the fight against plastic.
