Jay Sinha speaks to the importance of strengthening the role nature plays in our lives.

Maintaining our creativity takes work. We need to develop and foster it if we want it to stay strong and lively. The same is true of nature: It has the power to feed and rejuvenate us in ways we may have never imagined. But we also need to ensure we protect it and keep it vibrant.

About the speaker

Maintaining our creativity takes work. We need to develop and foster it if we want it to stay strong and lively. The same is true of nature: It has the power to feed and rejuvenate us in ways we may have never imagined. But we also need to ensure we protect it and keep it vibrant.

This month’s CreativeMornings Ottawa speaker knows the importance of strengthening the role nature plays in our lives. Jay Sinha is a scientist, lawyer, ecopreneur and tree hugger.

Jay has always been captivated by nature, and his environmental protection instincts really took hold when doing a grade six project on acid rain. Now he sees chilling parallels between yesterday’s acid rain and today’s borderless toxic microplastics.

Jay will speak about the sacred powers of nature and how to access them in our lives.

Jay hails proudly from the sunny, windy prairies of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He is the co-founder and co-owner (with business partner Chantal Plamondon) of Life Without Plastic, a globally established online shop and information resource for safe, high quality, ethically-sourced, Earth-friendly alternatives to plastic products for everyday life, including zero waste essentials.

An honors degree in biochemistry from Western University taught him about the microscopic world. He completed civil and common law degrees at McGill University, followed by a dip back into science with a graduate diploma in ecotoxicology from Concordia University—all the better to understand the toxic effects of plastics. He has held various positions in the public, private and civil society sectors.

Jay is a co-author (with Chantal) of the timely bestselling book, Life Without Plastic: The Practical Step-by-Step Guide to Avoiding Plastic to Keep Your Family and the Planet Healthy.

Jay now resides in beautiful Wakefield, Quebec, Canada
