together we can create a wave of changelove life and live it sustainably
Sustainability and Life Coach, Speaker and Ocean Advocate.
The Clare Talks Rubbish Podcast / Blog and projects to inspire positive change for inner and outer landscapes.
I envisage a world where individuals feel empowered and the collective absolutely DOES make a difference. A world where we give back rather than take away. I’m on a mission to create a life less ordinary in whatever way that looks, sounds or feels like for YOU.
Who Am I?
Sustainability and Life Coach / Speaker and Ocean Advocate
I aim to inspire you to get outside, connect with nature live a life you love sustainably. I quit the corporate rat race in 2017 and changed my life around to live outside the box and I am so much happier for it. Now I want to share the lessons and skills I have learnt along the way.
Are you a Rubbish Rebel ?
