Brisbane Tool Library

After a BSc in Biology and a MSc in Environmental Economics, Sabrina started a PhD, researching zero-packaging food systems. In 2017, she founded Brisbane Tool Library, a social enterprise based on economic degrowth that aims to reduce household consumption. This “library of things” is based at the State Library of Queensland. Sabrina works for a more sustainable society in different countries, including Kenya, Mexico, Ecuador, Australia and across Europe. Her experience includes working in international arenas, such as for United Nations, as well as with indigenous communities in remote regions. In Queensland, she collaborated with Environment Minister Dr Steven Mile to introduce the law to ban single-use plastic bags. Founder, TEDx speaker, author and researcher, Sabrina is invested in creating systemic change that will build a new social just and ecological sustainable economy.
