Cate Trotter

 

A trendspotter and green marketing strategist, sustainability has been a major part of Cate's career for the past eight years. Her Design and Eco-Design course at Goldsmiths College, University of London involved designing and building an eco coffin, planning a sustainable meal with George Bush, and imagining what would happen if Greenpeace and Tesco joined forces. Since then, she's assisted Nokia's CSR team with their research and strategy, worked on sustainability documents for Unilever and helped a celebrity designer develop an eco-product for Tesco. She can currently be found exploring London town, documenting trends for consultancies around the world.
