They say one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, but when it comes to waste, Kirsty Bishop-Fox is all treasure.

Kirsty is known for motivating people to prioritise sustainability through her many writing and speaking endeavours.

Laura Grufas has spent the last two decades in senior marketing roles engaging and connecting consumers with iconic brands and products that are sure to be in your pantry, freezer or household drawers. We could call her a late bloomer when it comes to climate action, only recently having her ‘once-you-know moment’ a few years ago, which set her on a very different directory, where she scrambled to find her place in the climate movement. She connected with Australian Parents for Climate Action and became their National Community Organiser and Volunteer Organiser in May last year and hasn’t looked back. Now she leads over 25 local parent groups in every state and territory in Australia advocating for stronger and faster action on climate with politicians and local communities – as well as being an active organiser in her local community group in Geelong and Bellarine.If you are Interested in keeping up to date with the latest Australian Parents For Climate Action campaigns, news and events, join them here.Sign their open letter asking the Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek to safeguard our children’s future. There is so much at stake. There are over 19 new coal and gas projects awaiting approval. An urgent need to address the State of Environment report.
