Amy Charuy-Hughes is an environmental campaigner from London. A BA Fashion graduate and founder of Greener Together with Amy, Amy creates beautiful handmade reusable items to reduce everyday single-use products, available to purchase online via her website.
Amy has been working within the fashion industry throughout her education and early career life. After learning about The Ocean Cleanup, Amy made the decision to change her lifestyle, and has since been merging her career with her lifestyle choices. Amy is particularly interested in the environmental impacts of the fashion and beauty industries, women’s menstrual products and litter pollution. Amy works to inform the general public regarding these environmental and health issues through public speaking. Amy fuses this information with comedy through the contents of her eco-handbag.
In her fashion work, Amy works as a Shoot Stylist and Production Assistant and offers a unique service to deliver environmentally-friendly and sustainable photoshoots. Amy is available to work on any creative shoots which focus on sustainability or with a brand who would simply like to work more sustainably. Within her local area of South West London, Amy volunteers for Refill, a City to Sea campaign. The campaign works with local businesses to help tackle the plastic pollution problem by encouraging the general public to refill water bottles and to drink tap water instead of buying bottled water by promoting free tap water refills.
Amy’s favourite organisations and charities which Amy supports and follows include: Friends of the Earth, Surfers Against Sewage and City to Sea.
