Meet the Team
'Pack It In' consists of myself, Phil ( Phillipa not Phyllis!), and my wonderful Team. My ‘Zero Waste ’ journey has been a long time in the making and I want to share what I have learned in the hope that we can all work towards a much greener future. For many years I was a Primary School Teacher but I gave up that career to create 'Pack It In'.
For a long time, I had been an advocate of using reusables and recycling but in the last few years, with the advent of the Zero Waste movement, this has crystallised into a need to do something more. Gradually, I had eradicated a great deal of plastic from my household and focused on less-packaged food and self-care items. But, once some initial changes were completed, it became increasingly difficult to go any further as there weren’t any bulk retail outlets available locally. Over time I came to the realisation that this was something that I could do myself, and ,Pack It In, was the result. I do hope that you will share this journey with me and join our ever-growing community!
