COO & Founder
When you grow up as I did in the UK, you don’t always realize that there are people a lot less fortunate than yourself who are doing what they can to survive. It wasn’t until I had the opportunity to visit countries such as India, Lesotho and the Ukraine that I saw for myself how much they needed help from more developed countries.
Watching the movie “Before the Flood” was a turning point for me. The message really hit home and I understood that more needed to be done. Since then I’ve sought every opportunity to increase my knowledge of environmental issues and to support and promote initiatives in my community. This can range from passionately joining beach clean-ups to educating an office on the principles of recycling.
I believe that everyone should take personal responsibility for their impact on the environment. I try to do this by living as close to a zero waste and sustainable lifestyle as possible. I carefully consider my environmental impact at home. I refuse any single use plastic and use energy more efficiently. If I need to take a long haul flight then I will ensure that I offset the carbon.
I’m excited by the potential of Grove Carbon and I look forward to working with you so that we can all do our bit to help our planet.
