SPEAKER BIO'S

JAYDEN KLINAC – FOUNDER, FOR THE BETTER GOOD

Jayden is founder of For The Better Good, a social enterprise producing water bottles made from plants. He’s helping tackle some of the environment’s greatest threats – single-use plastic, our reliance on fossil fuels and re-balancing the Carbon Cycle. The company produces water bottles made entirely of plants using renewable crops. The plants are broken down, their starch fermented, extracted and mixed into a polymer used to make the bottles. Jayden insists that For The Better Good is not a bottled water company, but an organisation that is providing a platform for humanity to live more harmoniously with nature. The company takes responsibility for the entire life-cycle of the bottles they make. If you take a bottle back to one of their collection points, they have it composted at one of their four facilities nationwide, and then use the compost to go on and create more good.

LUCY VINCENT – MARR – FOUNDER, SANS CEUTICALS

Lucy Vincent has a fresh, uncontrived approach to hair and beauty. With her experience running three influential hair and beauty clinics, a string of international collaborations and mul-tiple top Australasian hairdressing awards under her belt, her status as an industry leader has been cemented.
With a core focus on wellbeing and natural science, Lucy set about working with a team of New Zealand’s top scientists and cell biologists to change the status quo. “The more I learned how ingredients and cells work, the more I desired to create a product that was good for both our bodies and the envi-ronment, whilst actually delivering results.” Lucy describes her specialist skin and hair care collection as “a convergence of everything that really matters to me – pure, sustainable, highly active and considered.”

 

HAMISH DUNLOP – FOUNDER, NEW ZEALAND QUINOA

From paddock to plate, the New Zealand Quinoa Company is a typical farming family growing an atypical crop. Kate and Hamish Dunlop started their journey around their breakfast table in rural Taranaki. Already having a desire to provide healthy, nutritious food for their family, growing quinoa seemed like a natural fit for their farming ideals. The crop is grown with minimal intervention, just as it grows in the wild, and it isn’t touched once Hamish and Kate sow it. For us at Ozone the opportunity to work with NZ growers of atypical products such as quinoa is about proving the viability of sourcing more and more produce locally. By eliminating the massive distances travelled by crops such as South American quinoa we receive a product that’s both more nutritious and less impactful on the environment.
