Countdown To Blue Earth '23 -
10-12 Oct — Bristol
Investigative journalist, entrepreneur, podcaster and anti-greenwash activist.
Prior to co-founding My Green Pod with Jarvis Smith, Katie was a senior writer, researcher and a deputy editor at Which?, and headed up the magazine’s Indian equivalent from Mumbai. During this period she was also a contributing co-editor for UK-based GreenSpirit Magazine.
With My Green Pod, Katie has combined her experience in investigative journalism with her passions for clean living, transparent business, human rights and the environment.
As editor in chief, Katie has exposed a ‘microplastics dodge’ in cosmetics, the ‘dark side’ of bubbles and ‘second-wave greenwash’ from companies cashing in on the growing demand for ethical products. She frequently writes about the importance of detecting corporate sideshows that can slow the shift to a more conscious lifestyle.
Katie currently sits at number 13 on the ‘Who’s Who in Natural Beauty’ Top 25 list of personalities driving change in the sector. She is also a co-presenter on My Green Podcast, a Beauty Buzz columnist for Natural Products News, a regular judge for the coveted Beauty Shortlist Eco Lifestyle and Mama & Baby Awards and a speaker at events including Natural & Organic Products Europe and Fully Charged LIVE.
