Founder of Mainstream Green, making sustainability easy


Nicola Turner is a mother, author and behaviour-changer working with businesses, councils and individuals to make sustainability easy, normal and feel good.

Nic's fascination with human behaviour and consumption began after a successful 15 -year career in the global world of fast-moving consumer goods. She now runs a social enterprise called Mainstream Green, leveraging her corporate insights to create a movement where people are more mindful of how they consume and the impact they have. Through regular media appearances, events and content creation, Nic shows a version of sustainability that we can all relate to. A version that’s better for our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of the planet and that inspires change in organisations and communities.

Nicola lives in Cambridge, New Zealand, with her husband, two children, and a worm farm.

Talking Points

Sustainability - it’s no big deal

As organisations and individuals, sustainability doesn’t have to be this big ‘other’ thing that we have on the to-do list. In this inspiring and light-hearted session you’ll be inspired at how reducing our impact on the world around us can be as simple as changing our mindset.

Green Wellbeing

We all know reducing our impact is better for the wellbeing of the planet, but what about us? Weaving together her personal story with informed insights, Nicola will share the power of doing right by the planet to improve our own personal wellbeing.

Less stuff. Less impact. More simple.

A crash course in how we can simplify our relationship with stuff and live a bit lighter on the planet without it compromising our lifestyle - in fact it makes it better!

Mindful consumption

There’s a trillion-dollar marketing industry convincing us to consume more. In this thought provoking and often humorous session, Nicola flips the marketing to show us an alternative version of consumption. A version of consumption we can all implement and is better for our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of the planet.

Sustainability without the guilt

Most of us want to be more sustainable, but in our busy lives and organisations it can feel too hard, too time-consuming or simply, a drag. In this entertaining and optimistic talk, Nicola blends her personal journey with an informed approach to behaviour change. Audiences will walk away inspired and with a toolbox of approaches to create behaviour change in their home and workplace.
