Whilst still a relatively niche sector, eCommerce, retail and sustainability podcasts are becoming more prevalent. Here, we provide an ongoing list of the podcasts listened to at The Ecobahn HQ.
More than ever, eCommerce and sustainability podcasts are becoming a rich source of information and discussion on sustainable and ethical business practices.
We regularly get asked for recommendations on podcasts that are sustainability and eCommerce related. So, we’ve decided to create this post to keep you regularly updated on the episodes and podcast series we’ve been following.
There’s no particular rhyme or reason to this list, other than simply sharing podcasts we have enjoyed each week- and we’d love to hear any of your recommendations for podcasts we should be listening to!
