Brittany Pummell - Coventry University

On entering her final year of undergraduate studies, Brittany decided to go completely waste-free! Since September 2015 she has been chartering her journey to a waste-free lifestyle under her social media pseudonym ‘Beeing Green’ offering tips and advice to help fellow students on how to adopt a more sustainable and waste-free lifestyle.

Brittany has also delivered multiple highly engaging lectures on waste free living, most recently at Warwick University’s ‘Food for Thought’ event. Although Brittany started the year not intending to inspire anyone else to go waste free or to reconsider their lifestyle choices, her ability to stress that this lifestyle is easily adaptable has enthused many. It’s as easy as purchasing only items that can be composted or recycled and making ethical considerations when purchasing non-food items.

Brittany with her waste-free journey has undoubtedly helped to further the sustainability cause!
