Climate activist, public speaker, zero waste advocate and environmental scientist.
Hello! My name is Laura Young, aka Less Waste Laura. Welcome to my little corner of the internet. Journey with me as I try to live an environmentally conscious lifestyle and advocate for environmental education and climate justice!
BBC News with Victoria Derbyshire (@VicDerbyshire) discussing the Boohoo CEO John Little interview on the topic of fast fashion and sustainability. The coverage continued on BBC Radio 5 Live where I spoke to Rachel Burden (@RachelBurden) and Nicky Campbell (@NickyAACampbell), and Radio Berkshire with Sarah Walker (@SarahWRadio).
Summer means holidays, and for many that means new clothes, but how damaging are our shopping habits on the planet? Check in with me, Sunny, and Shay (@SunnyAndShay) on BBC Radio WM as we speak about fast fashion, and all of the great ways we can be more sustainable while still looking good!
A little bit more about me; I have completed a bachelors of science degree in Geography and Environmental Science from the University of Dundee, and a Masters in Environmental Protection and Management at the University of Edinburgh.
I currently work for the international development charity, Tearfund, as their Scotland COP26 Advocacy Events Coordinator, and run the social media channel for Bin Twinning, a new sustainability platform to help support recycling and waste projects around the world.
I work with individuals, business, and other organisations looking into sustainability in different spheres. For more about my work check out this page.
