Kate Nelson has lived for ten years without single-use plastics and is one of Australia’s leading advocates for plastic minimisation. Impacted by a 2008 visit to the Great Pacific Trash Gyre, she made her decision to live disposable-plastic free. She has since founded not-for-profit Save the Mermaids, lobbied governments and corporates and spoken at schools around the world about the dangers of plastics in our oceans. In her hometown of Byron Bay, New South Wales, Kate runs workshops promoting the joys of living consciously.
Her first book, I Quit Plastics, will be released in April 2020.
