The Steem Sister Show - Episode 42 // Sustainability

in steemsistershow •  11 months ago 


Welcome to the 42nd episode of the Steem Sister Show!

Your hosts are @coruscate and @maryjaney. We are two sisters using the Steem blockchain to chat about our life experiences and provide a little entertainment value to the Steemit Community.

Topic of this Episode – Sustainability



We have talked a little bit about sustainability in different episodes - and thought it would be interesting to do an entire show on it. We are actually using exclusive listener questions in this episode because we had so many good ones!

Ps... We had soooo many funny respones to our epsidoe on Canadian habits! We spend the first few minuites of this episode chatting about some of your hilarious responses. I think this was the first time we got an actual video response to a question we threw out to the audience too.

Thanks @d00k13 for clearing up the whole Toque vs. Beanie discussion!

Here are the questions covered in this episode:


  • @ralk98 - What strategies do you apply to reduce food waste?

  • @ralk98 - What do you think about the idea of a system that filters water from the shower, sink and washing machine to do other things like flush the toilet and water plants?

  • @ralk98 - Would you eat bugs or insects for protein?

  • @ralk98 - Do you often use public transportation or bicycles?

  • @aussieninja - How would you juggle personal comfort and sustainability?

What is the Steem Sister Show All About?


We aim to bring more “non-crypto” related content to the Steem Blockchain. Although there is nothing wrong with this kind of content (@corsucate even posts on crypto related material sometimes) – we want to help create a better onboarding experience for new users. We talk a lot about attracting new users to the platform – but if the trending page is filled with crypto posts and flagging wars, they are likely to lose interest quickly.

We hope that by creating content that is more similar to what they are used to seeing on other social media sites – they will feel more excited about being here and creating content of their own!

How Does It Work?


We pick a different topic every episode, and then throw totally random questions about that topic in a hat and go back and forth. We always have a mix of our own questions and some audience questions. Our rule is that we cannot tell each other our answers before filming! So you guys are getting our raw, unfiltered reactions here.

Every episode we announce the next week’s topic so people can submit questions.

Want to win some Steem??



If we chose to answer your question in the next show… we will send you 2 Steem!

Next Week’s Topic : Truth or Dare


Ok so this is a HUGE experiment! We have chatted on and off about the idea of doing a Truth or Dare series, and so we thought we'd try it out on a show first! If it's a hit - we may start making some separate truth or dare videos where we have to talk about or do what you guys suggest.

SO for next week's episode - please drop either a truth or dare and we'll toss in a few of our own too! If we pick your truth or dare, we'll send you 2 Steem - just like a normal question! We'll probably do more truths because that's easier to do on camera... but you never know!

That’s a Wrap!


We hope you guys enjoyed this episode all about sustainability. It seems like we are both in simliar places of being open to learning more and adding more sustainable practice to our lives. Maybe even a few of you were inspired by a couple of things we are already doing too.

With Love,

The Steem Sisters

Picked questions from a hat, eh? Nice...

Good luck to whoever comes up with truth or dares for these two.

hahah yes it will be crazy!! Feel free to throw one in the hat if you are feelin' brave! hehe

I'm not keen on all this conservation stuff.
What have future generations ever done for us??

hahah! Yeah... that's the side of the argument no one ever talks about! lol

Lol you guys twins? ;)

This seems like something fun, I challenge them to take turns covering their eyes and doing a very nice makeup for the other!

Ooh thanks for giving us our first DARE! :)

Hello! This will be a great video, I propose a challenge is to bite an onion without grimacing while you eat it!

The Next week session could be the most interesting one I guess!
Truth or dare? Hmmm, I chose the dare one. I dare you to sing your favourite song on camera with an attractive dancing moving like crazy. Dare you???
Gonna be so excited to see that if you do hahahah.
Anyway, I just want to remind you that, I think you forget to send me some steem for the question of mine that you answered in the last episode.
Thanks Leaaa

The sisters beauty... great job girls, greetings from Venezuela.

Challenge Accepted.

I loved this episode so much!! You guys have some really great suggestions, so happy!

Hmm, truth or dare... the mind boggles at all the possibilities.

I dare you both to do the Tim Tam Slam! This is incredible with a hot chocolate, but I dare you to do with Schnapps. Any flavor of Schnapps is fine... I've done it and with a good group it can be amazingly hilarious.

If you can't find Tim Tams... then I dare you two to play Chubby Bunny. The winner can think of the penalty for the loser.

You’ve got to be kidding me how am I your first video response? I’ll take it, along with being first mentioned in your show! Glad you enjoyed the short video, decided to cut the middle of me ranting because it got a little crude and I wasn’t sure about uploading it because I had that serious sound.

I didn’t chime in on the sustainability topic because well I’m really bad at it I always air on the side of comfort!

All right I got you on the dare!

Drop The Mop For DTube!!!!!
I shaved my head on camera, @Vincy did a DIY haircut for her 500 follower milestone, @Toddmck did a hair cut because he liked the initiative of doing for the sake of interaction on the blockchain. Your turn girls, can be anything hair cut on camera. Let’s make this a thing you could challenge your audience to match your dare to be able to request another!?!

Always a hoot girls!

I bet you most people are going to request a dare on the first time around for this!

Hey girls, thanks for picking up all four of my questions and take the time to write them down on that "monstruosity" paper, hahaha.
I knew you would say no to the insects part, this was a tricky question to see you cringing :D lmao (joke).
But yes, I totally agree with what you say, sometimes comodity is more important than sustainability, I mean, we can do all of these small things that really add up to protecting the enviroment, but what would be the point if we just worsen our life quality? ...As someone says in the comments, What have future generations ever done for us? lol.

I dare you to lick your own elbows btw 🧐

Thruth: What is the worst food you have ever tried?

nice video
