Judges, Mentors and Teachers

Our Judges

Our awesome panel of judges represent the full spectrum of activists working in diverse sectors – from TEC’s Director Jeff Angel who has been an environment campaigner for 40 years, to model, scientist and Ocean Ambassador Laura Wells. Francis Pascua, the marketing manager at G-Star Raw came on board because he abhors the toxic legacy of fast fashion; artist and international plastic activist Marina DeBris practically invented haute couture Trashion; and fashion designer Camille Reed created the Circular Fashion Conference to promote less wasteful principles in the fashion industry. They are inspirational leaders who believe in the next generation.

Our Mentors

These passionate artists spend their working lives raising awareness by transforming waste into resources. They provide encouragement, inspiration and knowledge of sometimes disappearing skills like knitting and crochet to our high school teams, proving that recycling isn’t just great for the imagination, it’s a way we can all help to save the planet.
