About Mariska NellToday we introduce Mariska Nell who lives and breathes sustainability. A few years ago, she started to experiment with trash in her artwork, and this resulted in her curiosity on how exactly it affects the environment. She then quit her corporate life to focus on her newly found passion for the planet. In 2018 she decided to take the trash to the streets of the UAE and wore all the trash she generated for everyone to see. 30 days and 65 kg of waste later she had the country buzzing with questions about waste and wanting to know how they can reduce it. That also led to the birth of her popular podcast, Mama Earth Talk.She inspires change through her artwork, podcasting, and public speaking. Her artwork can be found in the collections of South African comedian and The Daily Show Host, Trevor Noah, Actor and Environmentalist, Adrian Grenier, Entrepreneur, Gary Vaynerchuck, Kris Fade, a radio presenter on Virgin Radio Dubai, Black Coffee a world-renowned DJ and producer and Mason Plumlee an NBA basketball player for the Denver Nuggets.Episode summaryIn this episode we discuss Mariska’s journey, which includes scaling Kilimanjaro and stepping away from her corporate career to pursue her passion of raising awareness for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle.We talk about zero waste, her art, her Mama Earth Talk podcast and some of the memorable moments during her journey.
