With over 30 years in the green sector, it’s exciting to see how sustainability is now part of mainstream thinking – and I’ve played a part in that.

When, I started working with John Elkington in 1986 we wanted to show people the connections with the choices they were making every day and their environmental impact. Our Green Consumer Guide, published in 1988 got this idea off the ground.

Since then, I’ve worked as a sustainability consultant, writer and speaker.My approach is challenging and at times provocative as I’m not interested in just supporting the status quo but aim to be a driver for change.

I’ve been eco-renovating my Dorset home for the past six years. My other top three projects are finding sensible solutions to problems created by our wasteful society, family planning in Africa and sustainability advisor to Loop Innovations.


@JULIAHAILES It always surprises me that #Australia is one of the biggest culprits in #climate change. Now they've given the go ahead for a huge mine or series of #coal mines that could affect the #BarrierReef.. What a disaster.. #stopcoal I'm speaking about #plastics and #waste at a Webinar organised by #PositiveLuxury on 2nd July at 3pm. You can join if you like!
