Tim’s premier passion is the issue of plastic pollution, otherwise known as marine debris. As a passionate surfer Tim has encountered the issue of plastic pollution his entire life but became an active campaigner for the cause in 2009 with the launch of Take 3.
Plastic pollution is by and large the result of inadequate waste management practices and policies around the world. The ocean is unfortunately downhill from everywhere so saving the oceans means stopping waste on land.
The word ‘sustainable’ has become a washed out idiom, patronising the true meaning of the word. The 21st century needs a framework for ‘genuine’ sustainability and this exists in the principles of the Circular Economy.
Sustainable Alternatives to Disposable Products
In an effort to promote alternatives to wasteful and polluting disposable products Tim established ReChusable in 2012. ReChusable aims to provide sustainable alternatives to disposable products and advocates a better way of consuming.
Education & Activation
Since 2011 Tim has personally educated over 80,000 students from over 100 schools around Australia.
Tim has an insatiable appetite for education and visions for innovative resources and methodology to inspire and activate the education sector to address genuine sustainability and waste reduction.
Tim lends his support to many projects and campaigns to bring attention to important ocean conservation issues.
