PFSEA is a social impact business, started in Siem Reap Cambodia in 2015. Founded and run by Sarah Rhodes, an Australia, who lives part time between Siem Reap, Cambodia and Sydney, Australia.
PFSEA focusses on stopping plastic pollution at the source – every piece of plastic that isn’t used to begin with has less impact on our ailing environment. Via online programs and in person workshops and consultations we address the issues around plastic consumption, pollution and solutions.
PFSEA is a business. Our impact is for social benefit however we strongly believe in sustainability at all levels. Every customer and supporter of PFSEA is helping us to reach sustainability so we can continue to work on green solutions for a healthy future.
We design and deliver important initiatives to increase awareness and encourage tackling the over consumption of plastic.
You can get involved by supporting one of our existing campaigns, such as the Plastic Free July Challenge or the PFSEA Plastic Fighter’s program.

Sarah is Australian and has lived in Cambodia since 2014. She wears many hats at PFSEA and is the entrepreneur behind the concepts and programs. She’s adamant that perfect shouldn’t get in the way of good, that support and encouragement are the way to people embracing results and that PFSEA can make a difference in the world. Sarah works in various countries in Southeast Asia and her home country, Australia. As of October 2019 she is based in Sydney and spends around 4 months each year in SEA.
