Co-founder EPWN, EnviroWagg Manager
The owner and operator of EnviroWagg, a company dedicated to collecting and composting canine waste into safe, nutrient-rich, garden soil. She established the company after her extensive investigations into the issue of pet waste disposal in North America.
Rose's goal is to educate and guide pet owners in the safe and responsible composting and up-cycling of their dogs' and cats' waste - in doing so she hopes to nudge the world toward a more sustainable future.
Co-founder of EPWN
Ruth has spent most of her working years in a ‘harm prevention’ capacity in both government and not-for-profit sectors. In 2019, Ruth led a South Australian trial to divert all the dog waste at her local dog park from landfill to a composting facility. This was the beginning of her interest in encouraging more pet owners to consider eco-friendly options.
As a current owner of two Labradors, Ruth has ample opportunity to ‘walk the talk’ and composts Labrador poop in a tumbler!
