In addition to these events, I give talks and teach workshops for various organizations. Some of these include NASA’s Johnson Space Center, Sierra Club, Plastic-Free July, Target, Facebook, PCC Community Markets, Singapore Writer’s Festival, libraries, waste management companies, corporations implementing more sustainable practices and introducing low-waste concepts to their employees, and so on. To book a speaking engagement, please contact my booking manager, Cecil Ang.
