EcoStardust Founder Kath Senior Has Been Named One to Watch for 2020 as a Leader of Environmentally Sustainable Business by Enterprising West of England
Our founder and Glitter Queen Kath was crowned Enterprising West of England’s Leader of Environmentally Sustainable Business at the Ones to Watch Awards 2020 held at the Bristol Old Vic by Business West. The Ones to Watch Awards showcase the brightest entrepreneurial talent the West of England has to offer.
As Kath is on maternity leave, Sophie and Kelly from the team collected the award on her behalf.
Kath Senior, says “sustainability is extremely important to me as it is something I have built my business around. I believe all businesses should have a social responsibility to limit their impact on the environment and to promote good causes”.
“I’d like to thank Enterprising West of England and the panel for recognising the work EcoStardust has done. I couldn’t have built such a sustainable business without my amazing team who live by strong environmental values and to even be nominated in this category is an honour and me and the team feel so proud”.
EcoStardust’s mission is to spread happiness with their biodegradable glitter whilst also raising awareness of environmental issues. 10% of their profits go to support environmental charities such as City to Sea and Surfers Against Sewage who are taking steps to protect the planet.
James Durie, Chief Executive of Bristol Chamber of Commerce & Initiative at Business West - the organiser of the event - comments:
