Lucy Siegle is a writer, broadcaster and public speaker on ecological issues and sustainability who has been at the heart of contemporary conservation and environmentalism for two decades.

(Harper Collins 2011, nominated for the Orwell prize) and Turning the Tide on Plastic: How Humanity (and you) Can Make Our Globe Clean Again (Orion).

For 14 years she wrote the first popular sustainability column in a national newspaper, The Observer and is also known for her interviews and features with high profile environmentalists, from Sir David Attenborough to Bjork.
