My Green Life (May21)

When I was a baby my brother painted me green.. Perhaps a sign of what was to come. And the start of my Zoom speech on ‘My Green Life’.

I also talk about:

Setting up SustainAbility Ltd, with John Elkington, in 1987


The global success of ‘The Green Consumer Guide’, published in 1988

Becoming a TV & radio regular, in the late 1980s / early 1990s

A scary legal encounter with McDonalds turning positive

Why plastic bags can be better than paper – and biodegradable or photodegradable bags may actually be worst of all!

Advising M&S on packaging, waste & food

My three sons choosing environmental careers..

Promoting ‘climate positive’ to Big Yellow self-storage company

Starting a wilding project at my home in Dorset

Why it’s urgent we should stop using peat

Promoting sustainable living & agriculture in Africa with Haller, The Milgis Trust & CHASE Africa

Choosing greener death – Water cremation (Resomation), Mycelium coffins & woollen shrouds

Why climate change activism is both exciting & ominous

Moving from promoting sustainability to regeneration

FIWAL* invited me to talk about ‘My Green Life’. Here’s a recording of my Zoom speech, on my YouTube Channel. It was done in support of Operation Future Hope – ‘Rewild the World Before It’s Too Late’.
