WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Lucy and I am the founder of LEPHYR, a contemporary communications agency and podcast for brands and people that float to and from the coast!
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME AS ENVIRONMENTALLY AWARE AS YOU ARE TODAY?
No one is perfect yet but at least you’re trying. My shift in perspective came after working with brands and understanding the effect of transparent and sustainable supply chains. It made me question how I consume and to be more conscious with my purchasing.
IN WHAT WAY ARE YOU BRINGING POSITIVE CHANGES TO YOUR COMMUNITY?
At LEPHYR, we work with brands and the people behind them to support their authentic voice. Real people, making positive change! I also started the LEPHYR podcast and to give people a platform to share their own inspiring stories.
PLEASE SHARE A KEY RESOURCE THAT YOU LOOK TO FOR GUIDANCE
Resources! There are so many amazing brands, platforms, people and companies giving us some really inspirational solutions. They are shaking up things a little and doing things a little differently. Those are the people who are focusing on a small part of the problem and creating really positive change. Someone I need to mention here is Lizzie Carr (@lizzie_outside) who does so much for the community and shares a lot of advice. Follow her!
