Megan Bayliss is a Social Work entrepreneur (trainer, speaker and garbage weaver) with a massive love of the ocean, of speaking in public and in educating others.
She was born and grew up in Papua New Guinea (PNG) where she first discovered garbage in the ocean (it was sooooo pretty), that salty plums are salty and that life closest to the equator is MUCH more to her liking than anything below 21 degrees Celsius (70 degrees F).
Megan Bayliss is an ambassador for Operation Food for Life and considers the people of PNG to be her people (because that is where she was born). She is committed to helping the kids who live on the dump in Port Moresby to have a better life and to find value in their dump existence by turning plastic trash to cash. She teaches village kids and women in prison to weave plastic garbage into beautiful fashion items. When sold, 100% of the money goes back to feed, clothe and educate the kids of the dump.
Megan is now a grand mother (which means she can travel more than when she was a Mum), lives in Cairns (right on the Great Barrier Reef), Australia, and takes every opportunity to speak about plastics in the ocean, train people and weave garbage with them to keep plastics out of landfill and ocean.
Megan is a Christian who loves science fiction, loves animals, has a healthy diet, is as crafty as they come and is not scared of hard work and living out of a suitcase.
