About the speaker

Jen Gale is a mum and ex-vet who once dragged the family along with a year buying nothing new, blogged about it and found her voice and her 'thing'. The author of The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide, she now blogs, writes, podcasts, speaks and lives about all things sustainable(ish). She believes we are not all helpless and that our actions are not insignificant - it all starts with that first step and continues one step at a time.
