An inspiring and practical journey to quitting plastics.
Kate Nelson has been disposable-plastic free for a decade. She started small- stopping her use of plastic bags and water bottles, refusing straws and carrying a reusable cup for takeaway coffee. But unhappy with how much plastic she still handled in her day-to-day life, she knew she had to do more. It took years, but Kate has developed effective strategies that others can easily adopt.

In 2009 Kate Nelson learned the oceans were filling with plastics that do not biodegrade, kill marine life, and threaten the global eco-system. She decided she would take action in her own life. She quit using disposable plastics. This journey has led Kate to be healthier, happier, and more connected to nature. Kate makes all of her own products and has been completely plastic-free since 2016. Kate teaches this lifestyle through DIY Youtube tutorials, and shares inspiring and educational content through Instagram (60k followers), and collaborates with other thought leaders, changemakers, and sustainable businesses to amplify awareness and inspire social change.
