Marina Qutab is a social entrepreneur, an eco-musician, a citizen activist, and a zero waste vegan influencer from Worcester, Massachusetts. She is better known as Eco Goddess on social media, and champions the green girl lifestyle. The co-founder of the first zero waste shop in Southern California, she has been advocating for a more just and thriving planet for over 8 years.
Marina’s inspiration for being a zero waste vegan lifestylist arose after her life-changing experience at the young age of ten visiting her father’s home country Pakistan. Here she was exposed to environmental degradation at an alarming rate and extreme poverty. Upon becoming ill and blowing her nose into a tissue one night where she witnessed black mucus from the air pollution, she knew it was her calling to work towards building a more conscious, just and sustainable world.
