All I wanted to do when I 'grew up' was travel, and experience this world through a a variety of lenses.
I've lived where my colleagues didn't have running water or shoes, let alone a vehicle or shopping malls, and
I've lived where my friends earned more money than they could spend on SUV's, ATV's and holiday homes.

Somewhere between 13 years living in a Canadian national park, focusing my
Project Management career on streamlining corporate process to reduce waste, and
spending months in Mozambique with as many manta rays and whale sharks as people,
I realised I needed my own project that could make a difference, starting in my heart.

sending ripples towards something bigger than just you.
It's especially dedicated to eliminating unsustainable habits like
single-use and disposable waste created by current ‘normal’ consumer options.
