I’m an action woman, experienced marketeer, campaigner and fundraiser, who is passionate about making a difference. I have free dived for many years, all over the world and seen the degradation of the marine environment due to climate change, over fishing and plastic pollution. My experience working on a plastic campaign with City to Sea – the organisation behind RefillUK inspired me to set it up in Aotearoa. I have have also managed Cycle advocacy campaigns in NZ and UK and a zillion events.

Serena is an experienced marketing professional, who is passionate about humanitarianism and the environment. As a gym junkie, she’s frequently hydrating with H20 and takes her reusable water bottle everywhere. She loves hitting the nature trails, having conquered most of Wellington’s peaks. As a keen photographer, Serena enjoys capturing Aotearoa in all it’s beauty and doesn’t want to see it ruined by plastic invasion.
Passionate about community wellbeing and sustainability, Julie is always keen to promote water as the best drink and loves that we live in a country where tap water is safe to drink. Since hearing the prediction that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea, she has been on a mission to reduce her single-use plastic waste and inspire others to join her on the journey. Julie lives in Wellington with her husband and three children.

I am from a beautiful small town at the top of the South Island named Takaka. Often, I spend my summer in Takaka either out on the water or exploring the local coastline. The rest of the time I am studying at Victoria University of Wellington. It was due to my large involvement with nature that made me passionate about the environment and lead to me to wanting to help in any way I could. RefillNZ showed me the option to be able to do this and I am excited and proud to be part of the team.
