Is Bamboo the Next Big Thing? with Scott Brady of Cariloha

Scott Brady is the Vice President of Communications for Cariloha, based in Sandy, UT. He oversees all internal and external communications for the company. In 2007, at the height of economic crisis and recession, Scott was part of the team that helped develop and bring the eco-friendly and sustainable Cariloha retail brand to market. Despite the struggling economy, Cariloha flourished and continues to grow. Now the brand is the only company that features sustainable bamboo in all of its product lines.

  • About the Show

    A Sustainable Mind started out as my master’s thesis project. I found that there were not a lot of people present in the conversations I was attending that looked or identified as I do. In classes, conferences and events I was one of few women, fewer young people and often the only woman of color.

    This show is my way of expanding the conversation to include everyone. I set an intention before every interview to truly be the audience. Anyone, from a middle school student to a retiree, and everyone that is not necessarily educated on the topics at hand should be able to listen with ease.

    It is the responsibility of all of us to improve this place we call home so we must all be present at the table.
