Searching for an eco thought leader for your next event?
Someone who’ll have your audience inspired,
enthused… and raring to take action?
Look no further than Laura Trotta!
Laura is one of Australia’s leading home sustainability experts, and is an experienced media personality. With a regular segment on ABC Radio – not to mention numerous other appearances as an interviewee, facilitator and featured expert – Laura is a total pro at taking complex eco concepts and explaining them in a way that’s not only informative and eye-opening, but that’s downright entertaining.
Extensive expertise + Real-world strategies
= An unbeatable combination
Laura’s eco credentials are indisputable – with a Bachelor of Environmental Engineering (with first class honours) and a Masters of Science (in Environmental Chemistry), not to mention 11 years working as an environmental professional, her know-how is hard to beat. Not only that, in her 6 years of running an online eco business she’s won numerous awards for her fresh and inspiring take on living an ‘ecoceptional’ life (including most recently winning the Brand South Australia Flinders University Education Award (2015) for the north-west region in SA and silver in the Eco-friendly category of the 2015 Ausmumpreneur Awards).
On top of all that professional expertise…
Laura brings something else to the table, something that results in audiences falling in love with her – a real-world pragmatism
that’s both inspiring and reassuringly achievable. As a busy mum of two, a wife, and a business owner, she KNOWS that aiming
for perfection is overrated, and that asking people to give up the things they love is a recipe for failure.
Instead, Laura’s message is all about carving out your own unique version of an ‘ecoceptional’ life – one that protects the
planet, while still being as fun, fulfilling and exciting as ever.
This pragmatic, down-to-earth approach embraces the realities of modern existence (and time-poor parents!) and empowers
people to focus on the small things they can achieve that, when combined, achieve big results. It’s this powerful combination of
expertise and understanding that has seen her praised as…
Laura’s reputation for impacting audiences with her empowering message makes her the perfect person to add a burst of eco expertise (and electric insights) to your next event. If you’re looking for someone to enthral your audience, inspire them into action, and expand their understanding of what’s truly possible, you’re in the right place!
As seen in/on…
Environmental passion meets award-winning expertise…
Laura’s fusion of education, inspiration + the practical side of protecting the planet has cemented her reputation as an audience favourite.
Laura is available for keynotes, workshops, facilitating, Q&A sessions, and guest presenting.
She loves to talk about…
From cloth nappies to eco play, from food choices through to sustainable skincare, there’s a LOT to think about when you’re trying to raise your child in an eco-friendly way! As the founder of the award-winning Sustainababy, as well as a mum to two young boys, Laura is an expert on how to embrace and embody the principles of eco parenting without breaking the bank… or losing your mind!
Thinking green and cultivating an eco mindset
When it comes to protecting the planet, it’s our mindset that determines our actions – and our results. Once you know how to cultivate an eco mindset, making greener choices becomes an enjoyable opportunity, rather than an onerous burden. Laura will teach you how to ditch the ‘green guilt’, deal with the doubters, rewire your brain for eco success, embrace the power of the baby-step, and start living a truly ecoceptional life.
As one of Australia’s premier home sustainability experts, Laura is the go-to gal for everything from water use and energy saving techniques through to creating your own eco kitchen and ditching toxic chemicals from your home. With her scientific background, she’s the perfect person to share the techniques that make the most difference (and that give you the most bang for your eco buck) and let you off the hook for those things that aren’t worth your time. (Her tips and tricks for chemical-free cleaning and skin-care will also blow you away!)
With every mouthful we eat, we are either helping or harming the planet. Find out how you can ensure that the food you feed your family is from the healthiest, most ethical sources, without spending an arm and a leg (or any extra time in the kitchen!). You’ll also learn how to store your produce for maximum lifespan and how to dispose of your food waste in a way that’s best for the planet.
Got a different green topic in mind?
Laura can tailor these topics to your audience and event, and can also present on a range of other eco topics. Please get in touch for further details.
Laura is also an expert facilitator…
“Six Sigma is a quality program that, when all is said and
done, improves your customer’s experience, lowers your
costs, and builds better leaders.”
— Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric
In her former corporate life, Laura also trained and worked as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and has a knack for facilitating groups to agree and take inspired action. She honed these skills throughout her local community, facilitating workshops for a diverse array of groups, including the Arid Recovery Project, the Roxby Downs Business Forum, right through to the Roxby Cricket Association! In fact, her facilitation skills were so much in demand (organisations ONLY wanted Laura!) that she had to develop strict criteria for accepting new clients, and these days she only takes on facilitation of an environmental nature.
So whether you’re a council, school or medium-sized business wanting to embrace the greener way of doing things… get Laura’s brain on your project and you’ll never look back!

"I have worked closely with Laura over the past few years, both in her capacity as a retailer of our brands, and as a colleague in the natural parenting industry. Laura continues to inspire me through her commitment to developing high quality, important resources that help Australians reduce their impact and improve their quality of life. In a world where eco “resources" abound, it can be hard to sift the wheat from the chaff. Highly committed to advocacy of eco-conscious living, and with two environmental degrees to back her up, Laura Trotta is the Australian authority on authentic sustainable living.”
“As a naturopath and a mum I’m passionate about the health of my family and am always looking for ways to clean up our environment and improve our wellbeing. I felt like I had hit the jackpot when I found Laura and her eco-living ecourses. Laura is not just another online “Guru”! She knows her stuff! She is qualified in environmental engineering and science and has a knack for translating scientific jargon into easily understandable language that anyone can make sense of. She radiates passion for creating a healthy home and you can’t help but become excited about what she teaches!”

"I think many people find making eco-changes hard. It's like we know we have to and we SHOULD but I love how she helps me and my community connect with the WHY. The honest truth is there are stacks of changes I need to make, but Laura never makes me feel bad about that - instead she provides easy, simple actions to take. She is a guest in Small Steps to Wholefoods because I LOVE picking her brain and she relates so beautifully with my audience - who all want to take small steps to improve the health and wellbeing of their families. Thank you Laura for the awesome conversations that always leave me feeling empowered and NOT overwhelmed!"
