Bea Johnson

She shatters misconceptions, proving that zero waste can not only be "stylish", but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings. Grand Prize winner of The Green Awards, she speaks at universities, corporate events and conferences internationally, and opens her home to educational tours and the media.

Bettina Limaco

Bettina Limaco is proud of three things. First is the finance in organizations by highlighting the understanding of the impact of decisions on financial statements. Second, she created a new category in business where none existed before: REFILL; which helps people reduce plastic use. Last, but not least, she ran a marathon without ever training for it and crossed the finish line.
