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!

A recent graduate from Worcester University, Georgina plans to head off to South Korea and teach English.

You’ll see much less of him now as he’s gone back to University to do his Teacher Training. We will miss his cheerful smile but wish him well!
