Say hello to your

sustainability manager

All of my secrets for building a brand-aligned sustainable business are waiting for you inside this program.

Let’s get real for a second…


Do you constantly bump sustainability tasks to tomorrow? Argue with staff about wasted plastic?

Ever felt like your sustainability action is really great but you're not getting the recognition you deserve?

Does your sustainability reaccreditation keep rolling around but you have to rush to get everything ready for the audit? You're scrambling to get all the paperwork together?

Feel discouraged after spending hundreds, maybe even thousands, on eco-friendly initiatives but your staff don't seem to get it? 


Which is why I've spent years speaking with hoteliers and tourism industry businesses understanding their problems, learning from their staff about the obstacles they face and bringing those teams into the sustainability conversation, so that you get to make sustainability the exciting, inspiring and satisfying element of business that it can be! This is your opportunity to work with me so that you can jump ahead in your progress, inspire your staff and impress your customers like never before.

Repeat after me

You can make a difference.
You are a great leader.
It's not pricey, in fact, you can cut your expenses!
You can—and will—attract the right staff and customers you need to build a sustainable image.

It starts with education, motivation and communication.

This isn’t about creating a policy or assigning one person to fulfil a checkbox. 

This is about developing your team into the kind of people who are empowered to take sustainable action and feel a connected to a higher purpose when they come to work. 

I’ll share my tried-and-true methods for creating the kind of culture that cares about sustainability, so that they take the ball and run with it. 

Are you getting excited yet?

this is your VIP support!

My comprehensive program will bring your team on the sustainability journey so that sustainable action becomes embedded in what you do, becomes natural, exciting and sets your business apart as a leading environmental hotel.


Let’s take a look at what’s inside




We'll meet and establish the roadmap for your sustainability plan, review your policy documents and current actions and identify the gaps and goals, including whether you have any (re)certifications due this year. This planning component will get the conversation going with key stakeholders in your hotel.

Education, buy-in, goal setting and outlining milestones for success. Team training for your entire staff will ensure you have a winning team! A team that's empowered to take action and ownership to achieve your sustainability goals in a cohesive and effective way.

More than a sustainability manager,  I've worked with hundreds of businesses meaning I have more experience and can help you get there more efficiently than an in-house sustainability manager or add value and support for your in-house manager. 

Ok, so how can you access these systems?

If you hire a sustainability manager, you're looking at a salary of at least $100,000 per year. Pricey sustainability consultants often cost even more, without the kind of foundational behaviour shift that I bring to your team. And many of the charities sell you the ‘feel-good factor’ but lack the ongoing change that I bring for your team.

The kind of knowledge I bring to your business is worth significantly more because of the places I've worked with and the experience I've accumulated working in the tourism sector for over 20 years and since 2015 on sustainability. The result is team cohesion and systemic change in your hotel. 

My commitment to you is not only to give you education that actually works—it’s to give it to you at a price that doesn’t break the bank. 
And I'm only offering it to a VERY limited number of businesses, 3 to be precise. You can gain access to my VIP support program for only:

don't just take my word for it! here's what some of my clients have to say:

haven cambodia

Sarah and her team from Plastic Free SEA brought us a whole step further regarding the environmental trainings of our HAVEN family. With PFSEA we have found a dedicated partner who does expert trainings for the whole HAVEN family, helps them develop a deeper understanding for environmental issues and evokes the responsibility to respect, protect and preserve our natural world.

treeline urban resort

Getting them to buy in and empowering them - I was so incredibly proud.

They took it and ran with it and within a couple of weeks we had made significant change, not just in eliminating plastic but many other things as well! 

alchemy movement + wellness

What I have most loved about learning from Sarah is her simple, down-to-earth and very practical approach to reducing the amount of plastic we use daily. She encourages awareness, not perfectionism. Her tips and suggestions are always realistic and “do-able”, aimed at making the transition to a plastic-free lifestyle accessible to busy individuals in the modern world.

There’s no greater feeling of purpose and pride than when you see your team taking sustainability on with enthusiasm. 
This is what I see with every team I work with and it's magical.

After moving to Cambodia in 2014, I started Plastic Free Southeast Asia in early 2015. With a Masters in Tourism Management and over 20 years in the industry, I created the foundational plastic-free program, which accelerates sustainable development practices in the tourism sector. 

I'm also a trained 'Climate Leader' and 'Blue Standard Consultant', sources of immense motivation for me. I'm so grateful for the lessons and community I'm part of with these two programs. Guiding tourism businesses throughout Southeast Asia and Australia to bring their teams on the sustainability journey is such an honour. I use processes I don't see many others using in this space, more than that, I know I can help hoteliers and sustainability managers within the hotel and tourism sector make a greater impact. 

I believe in collaborating, supporting and sharing my knowledge so that we can have a cleaner and more beautiful world, more connected people and a tourism industry that is sustainable and beautiful, today and tomorrow.


It’s time to up your sustainability game.
