Meet Lottie

Lottie Headshot

In 2018, I made a long list of new years resolutions but to my surprise and great delight, one of them actually stuck. I made it so broad and so lax that it couldn't not work was "to reduce my waste and be kinder to the planet." Simple right?

It was so much harder than I thought. Firstly I struggled to find credible information for people who like me were just getting started. Secondly, when I did find what I thought was the right information it was hard to find. And finally, when I decided to order six stainless steel straws online they came individually wrapped in plastic, sigh. So rather than be disheartened, I saw an opportunity. The opportunity to help Australians reduce their waste with trusted products and even better information.

Education is at the forefront of everything that I do in order to positively impact the habits of individuals and larger organisations. I was a finalist in the Sydney City NSW Business Chamber Awards in 2018 and 2019, for Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Start-Up Superstar and was named one of Contiki's 35 Under 35 Changemakers in 2019.

In 2020, I delivered a TEDx talk – The Power of Community in Fighting Climate Change. In 2021 I was named as one of Australia's Top 50 People in E-Commerce in 2021 and won Business NSW Sydney Metro Young Entrepreneur of the Year with Banish taking out the Sustainable Excellence award and winning overall Business of the Year.
