Lauren and Oberon, live with their three daughters in southern Tasmania, Australia. In September 2015, they undertook a Sustainability Challenge and reduced their energy consumption by more than 60%, transitioning to living completely waste and recycling free! They have been happily living a zero-waste life since then and have become sought after for their expertise on waste reduction. Lauren and Oberon run a home-based business by night and work, garden, learn and play by day, spending as much time in nature as possible. They are the founders of Zero Waste Tasmania.
Oberon is an ecologist who works to protect Tasmania's threatened species and places. He has been a regular speaker on a range of waste issues on ABC radio and has presented on reducing waste with various community and student groups. Oberon is a qualified permaculture design teacher who is passionate about living with a small ecological footprint. He aims to fully integrate his ecological knowledge with his daily life, with waste management being central.
