The recycling guru behind The Rubbish Diet campaign has been named the seventh most influential person in waste.

Karen Cannard has been awarded the accolade by Resource magazine.

She said: “It was a total surprise because amongst the top 10 you have the chief executives and directors who influence waste policy.”

Karen has risen 80 places from her ranking last year.

The reason for her rise given in Resource magazine is ‘For her boundless enthusiasm for slimming those bins - she doesn’t preach, she inspires! Hers is truly a world-saving approach’.

Karen sights are firmly set on expanding the success of The Rubbish Diet and extending it’s reach across the country.

On top of this she is a trustee of both The Zero Waste Alliance and Reuseful UK and regularly appears on TV and radio to promote recycling.
