Kate Nelson – Plastic Free Mermaid – Guest Speaker at the Eco Expo

Less Plastic, More Mermaids!

Kate Nelson (AKA The Plastic Free Mermaid) is an ambassador and inspiration for living a plastic free lifestyle.

She has a world-wide audience to which she voices reasons and methods to cut disposable plastic from everyday life. Kate has lobbied the government, spoken at schools around the world, and founded a not-for-profit organisation to combat the destructive plastic lifestyles many people live today.

Kate joins Khory Hancock for a Stage Discussion Panel on Saturday at 2pm ~ where you can ask any questions you have surrounding plastic reduction and ocean conservation.


Kate is on a mission to reduce the amount of plastic pollution after discovering the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an area of the ocean where the currents converge and our non-biodegradable rubbish collects. Kate co-founded the Save The Mermaids, which encourages women to act as ambassadors to the ocean and education people.

Kate promotes cutting out disposable plastics such as plastic cups, cutlery, straws and basically most products which are thrown away when they have been used once.  Many products which are disposable have counterparts which can be reused. For example, swapping single use coffee cups to keep cups which can be used many times over.
