Penney Poyzer is the no-nonsense eco-expert presenter of  BBC2's  prime time show No Waste Like Home.  She owns her own award winning “Eco-home” and her consultancy has guided hundreds of households and informed thousands of people about how to save money through living a greener lifestyle. 

As project co-ordinator of “Green Apple Award” winning EcoTeams (part of Global Action Plan) she transformed a heavy-on-bureacracy,10 year old household programme from Holland into a simple to use action plan that was hailed by the Parliamentary Environmental Audit Committee as one ‘that is changing hearts and minds’.

 

Penney personally led teams of households who took part in the EcoTeam programme. Over 250 households in Nottinghamshire have saved an average of £250 per annum and become far more aware of their impact on the environment. She created the first ever youth EcoTeam which has also won awards and was featured on BBC Radio 4’s You and Yours. The programme is now also running in other parts of the UK.

The EcoTeam programme has attracted great interest not only in the UK but internationally as well. Penney’s efforts have been recognised at the highest level. Last October she was invited to number 10 by the Prime Minister and Mrs Blair to attend a special reception for 100 people acknowledged to be leaders of green practice in the heart of communities.

Penney currently runs an eco bed and breakfast from her home, regularly gives lectures all over the country, is an acknowledged expert trainer in household sustainability (Environment Agency), is regularly quoted in national and local media. She runs training courses and tours at her ecohome in Nottingham /for both public and professional audiences. She is also a trainer in green issues for the construction industry.

Penney is 44 years old and lives with architect husband Gil and daughter Lucy.
