Julia Hailes MBE

Sustainability Pioneer


Vanessa Feltz show – BBC radio London 2011-2012 (Apr12)

Having been on the programme in 2011 talking about plastic bags, I was asked back to talk about vests.  The show had seen a comment I’d made in the Daily Express about how difficult it was to get children to wear vests – but that this was preferable to turning up the heating.

Julia Hailes on recycling plastic bags (Jan10)

Jonathon Vernon-Smith, from BBC 3 Counties, rants to Julia Hailes about why he doesn’t like being made to feel guilty about using lots of plastic bags. Julia robustly responds and the debate is followed by a phone-in! This was aired on his lunch-time programme in January 2010.
