My first introduction to sustainability, was at my previous company. I was privileged enough to be a part of setting up our South African sustainability team. Our office won a Global Challenge, to reduce paper consumption in our Company. My passion then grew into something my children can only explain as an “allergy”. Whenever we go to the shops and a cashier asks us for bags, they reply; “my mom’s allergic to plastic”.

From there I have tried worm farms (and worm juice), growing vegetables in my garden (although I don’t have green fingers, and I am still trying to master this one) to recycling initiatives, street picker initiatives and more recently, my small business, Urban Earth Mom.
