Changemakers 2020: Catherine Conway’s Zero Waste Business

Photo Credit: Max Diamond January’s edition of The Big Issue focuses on the Top 100 Changemakers in 2020. I was interested in finding an inspiring pioneer dealing with current environmental problems and discovered Catherine Conway, an amazing woman changing views on plastic packaging to improve ocean waste and sustainable living.

People with the same mindset as Catherine would bring […]

Capsule wardrobe

The Capsule Wardrobe Meets Gym To Swim ®
