Podcast: Kate Meads of Waste Free with Kate & Co.

By June Ramli


From The Nappy Lady to a Waste Enthusiast


Welcome to another episode of 30 minutes with DailyStraits.com. Our guest today is Kate Meads (pictured above) of Waste Free with Kate & Co. Based in Tauranga, New Zealand, whose business is centred around waste education. Kate’s crusade in waste education started as a first-time mum wanting to save money through her cloth nappy importing business in 2006. Inherently, she began to understand the waste reduction benefits that reusable nappies had to offer. She ran what was to be her first Parenting Workshop in the 2007 on reusable nappies in Hamilton, who were seeing alarming statistics at landfill level, from single-use nappies. In 2013, Kate sold and stepped away from her online reusable nappy business and The Nappy Lady to focus solely on waste minimisation education. Fast forward to this year, Kate is now a consultant, a keynote speaker and a motivational speaker for waste minimisation education, which sees her presenting her ideas to 30-500 per session. In a year, Kate talks to 1,000 people via community engagement programs, keynote speaking and business motivation. Her change enabler business has expanded to include an additional skilled educator leading to a rebrand last year to Waste Free with Kate & Co.


In this podcast, Kate discusses:


  1. What sparked her interest in waste education management?
  2. What was her day job before starting your business?
  3. How many people attended her first parenting workshop in 2016?


Without further ado let’s listen to the interview here:
