PFC (Plastic Free Cambodia) is a sole proprietorship in Cambodia and PFSEA (Plastic Free Southeast Asia) is a registered business name in Australia. Founder, Sarah Rhodes, moved to Siem Reap in late 2014 where her passion for environmental protection lead her to creating PFC, this has gradually evolved and now encompasses Southeast Asia and Australasia, making PFSEA what it is today. Currently Sarah is the main driver of PFSEA programs, which is a lot of fun and a lot of work. There are fantastic people who work for PFSEA on a casual basis to help with the delivery of the workshop program, social media and PR. There are also a couple of precious people who are often around for a chat and some support and advice. Additionally our pioneer PFSEA Plastic Fighters are a very special part of the PFC family – huge gratitude to Patrick, Marcus, Danny, Sally, Jess and Shauna.
You can read the full story of how PFC began on our blog.
Sarah is Australian and has lived in Cambodia since 2014. She wears all of the hats at PFSEA; marketing, PR, accounting, HR, etc doing the best she can to make a difference. 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. Already working in other countries in Southeast Asia, she’s also got her eyes on her home turf… Australia.
