Project Co-ordinator

What's your main area of work at Hubbub?

I'm passionate about working on projects which trial different models to disrupt systems, not just behaviour change. We can't create true behaviour change without systems change too - they are intertwined. My main focus area is around reuse and preventing single-use consumption - particularly on-the-go food and drink packaging. I have a background (or some would say weird obsession) in working on projects which tackle the production and consumption of single-use coffee cups, so working on research and trials at Hubbub is perfect for me!
What's your favourite campaign and why?

All campaigns which focus on trialing new models to create systems change, especially around the sharing economy! I recently worked on the creation of the Tech Lending Community Fund, which focuses on digital inclusion in temporary accommodation services while preventing e-waste! It's been great working on a project which tackles not just environmental challenges, but also social justice issues around digital inclusion. This project has made me more driven to ensure we think about accessibility and inclusivity when moving away from single-use packaging towards reuse systems.

What did life before Hubbub look like? 

Before Hubbub, I was studying BASc Global Sustainable Development at the University of Warwick. After the first year of my undergraduate degree, I interned at Hubbub and it got me really inspired to challenge the status quo and trial interventions throughout the rest of my time at uni. I studied abroad in Australia and lead the communications team for reusable packaging system BorrowCup, and then in my final year back at Warwick I co-founded a a scheme similar!

What else are you passionate about?

What would you eat if you only had one meal left?

Who’s your Eco crush?

I have three!
Kate Raworth - Obsessed with doughnut economics and the need to move away from growth. I worked with Kate freelancing on research while I was at uni and it still doesn't feel real - forever pinching myself!!
Also Victoria Prew, founder of HURR, and Josephine Philips, founder of Sojo. Both women are making a disruption to the fashion industry through rental and repair models, which I've personally found one of the hardest areas for systems change!
