2 Mins read

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#carbonshack–Stephen Pallrand, Ecopreneur and Founder of CarbonShack and Home Front Build, is a featured guest this week on the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian. The show is hosted by Shegerian, Co-Founder and Chairman/CEO of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.

Pallrand’s background in construction, architecture, architectural history, painting, and set design has aided him in pulling together the diverse group of artists, craftsmen, architects and designers who work on the CarbonShack projects. His father was a scientist/educator and his mother an educator and patron of the arts. This exposure to art, science and education led him to realize that building in an environmentally conscious manner is unimportant if you do not communicate the need and educate the consumer, for there are no green buildings, only green users.

Pallrand asserts that art and architecture have always played a critical role in representing the knowledge and culture of a period and his aim for the CarbonShack projects is to transform our shelters into vehicles of change.

“It was an honor to have Stephen, a true servant leader, on our show to share his story and describe the incredibly impactful work he is doing with CarbonShack,” said Shegerian. “Our audience is sure to be inspired by the work Stephen had dedicated his life to – to make our world a greener, better place.”

“I appreciate that in his podcast John Shegerian does not limit his sphere to a narrow range of climate warriors but looks far afield for the different and fascinating ways individuals and firms are approaching sustainability, including ours,” said Pallrand. “He asked questions that not only explored my approach to sustainability but my personal history and motivation that drives my passion for creating change. He really is the Terri Gross of sustainability!”
