  • About Natalie Fee

    Natalie Fee is an award-winning environmental campaigner and founder of City to Sea, a non-profit organisation running campaigns to stop plastic pollution at source. By engaging communities, working with retailers and lobbying manufacturers her aim is to reverse the trend for disposable items in order to safeguard our seas for future generations. Last year City to Sea’s #SwitchtheStick campaign successfully called on all UK retailers to make cotton bud stems out of paper — a move which will stop over 320 tonnes of single-use plastic at source annually.

    Natalie won the Sheila McKechnie Award for Environmental Justice 2017 and is listed as 'One of the Most Inspiring Bristolians Alive Today'. Her book, The Everyday Alchemist's Happiness Handbook' was published in 2012 and she continues sharing ideas that inspire positive change for people and planet through various digital platforms.

    Protecting rivers, oceans and coastlines from plastic pollution is how Natalie Fee, a presenter, author and environmental campaigner, aims to leave the world in better shape than she found it. As a former London headhunter, Natalie 'had it all' by the age of 21 … except happiness! So she gave up the fast life and headed off on a mission to discover what really makes us happy. Her journey led her around the world, from the Amazon jungle to a yoga studio in Southampton where she trained as a yoga teacher and became a mother. Natalie went on to write a column for the 'Green Parent' for five years and her book, The Everyday Alchemist's Happiness Handbook, was published by Findhorn Press in 2012 when she moved to Bristol. She then worked as a TV presenter and producer until experiencing a powerful call to protect the oceans, leading to the formation of her non-profit organisation, City to Sea.

    Natalie is listed as one of the '50 Most Inspiring Bristolians Alive Today' and in April 2017 won the Sheila McKechnie award for Environmental Justice for 'Switch the Stick, a campaign which has stopped over 320 tonnes of plastic a year from being produced … plastic which was likely to be flushed and would never be recycled! City to Sea's current campaigns include 'Don't Believe the Wipe', 'Period Power' and 'Refill'.

‘From Fear to Love: How tackling plastic pollution can change your life!’

 

Plastics are invading everywhere. They’re in the air we breathe, the water we drink, even the sea salt we sprinkle on our salads. But kicking the plastic habit can be difficult – and what about influencing our supermarkets and retailers, how can we do that?

Award-winning author, and environmental campaigner, Natalie Fee, will help us discover how. She’s inspired thousands through her own experience giving up single-use plastic, her campaigns and funny films.

Join us for an evening of

  • practical tips

  • inspiring stories

  • funny anecdotes

  • even the chance to make some serious plastic-free pledges.

 

 “City to Sea’s campaigns are having a great impact here in the UK. Global plastic pollution is a serious threat to our seas and the wider environment and it’s fantastic to see a group of dedicated people tackling the issue and making real progress.”                   HUGH FEARNLEY-WHITTINGSTALL 

I was deeply moved by City to Sea’s founder’s talk at TedXBristol last week…astounding to think what is going down our toilets everyday! this was just one example. Come on people…3P’s only! Pee Poo Paper!                                                                                                    NATALIE SHERMAN

The latest film ‘Plastic-Free Periods?’ Is flying over on Facebook with 1.4 MILLION views in a week! With no signs of slowing down, we’re over the moon to be getting the word out about plastic in menstrual products, whilst also letting people know not to flush them.

Another recent video about the reality of wet wipe plastic pollution. Littering from flushed wipes is on the rise – last year the Marine Conservation Society recorded over 14 wet wipes were found per 100 metres of coastline, a rise of 700% over the last decade. And in April this year, over 4,500 wet wipes were found on one 154m sq patch of foreshore.

Supporting City to Sea is one of the best things that you can do to help protect our seas, rivers and marine life from plastic pollution. We’re pro-water, pro-life and pro-active – we focus on solutions that stop plastic from reaching our waterways.
