Elizabeth Beaumont, a retired transplant nurse and wildlife advocate, is the Founder of Water for Schools. In 2015 she received a High Commendation from the Premier of Queensland for successfully campaigning an academic institution to ban the sale of water housed in polyethylene terephthalate. To date more than 80,000 bottles have been removed from circulation in favour of filtered water refill stations. Elizabeth has endorsed a children’s Book regarding the marine pollution. She actively volunteers for Surfrider Foundation, Clean Up Australia Day and has appeared on radio within her community and internationally to raise awareness about plastic pollution.
