Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?
