Be passionate about living and thriving
What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?
The guidance and support I needed to develop the leader within. Now I’m nye unstoppable.
Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?
To be passionate about sustainability is simply to be passionate about living and thriving! For me, it's one and the same. The moment I knew I was a change maker (and need some training and guidance!) was when my simple neighbourhood project turned into a business. It did so because each one of our participating households loved what we were doing and how we were empowering them to make a positive environmental impact. I knew then that I could empower and inspire even more households, if I took the leap. So I did!
Why is leadership for sustainability important?
There is over 7.2 billion people on our one (1!) planet.
What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?
I'm focused on growing Wiggly Recyclers into a successful business that both makes a big impact on household behaviour with regards to waste and demonstrates that business is an effective and powerful force for good.
