Founder Tina with recovering sea turtle while volunteering at Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre

Hi I'm Tina – The Founder

When the Australian travel industry came to an abrupt halt during the covid-pandemic Tina grasped at her chance to start again with a business model straight from her heart.

Tina’s own plastic-free journey started back in 2016 when she moved to Cairns and joined a group of volunteers at Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre.

It is here where she experienced first hand the negative impacts of humanity on nature and helped sick and injured sea turtles recover from plastic pollution, fishing net entanglement and boat strikes.

"Being plastic-free has to be the future, for wildlife, for nature and even for our own health. Join me on a journey together."
