Biography

Lucy Siegle is a journalist and broadcaster who specialises in living a green, eco-friendly existence. She is a reporter and presenter for The One Show where she explores the problem of single-use plastic and wider ecological issues.

She regularly contributes to major newspapers including The Times and The Guardian and she previously wrote a weekly column on ethical living for the Observer Magazine. She was also responsible for editing a guide to organic food for the paper’s Food Monthly section and for founding the paper’s Ethical Awards. Her articles cover issues ranging from ethical consumerism to corporate social responsibility and sustainable development.

Her first book, Green Living in the Urban Jungle, is an upbeat, easy-to-use guide to an eco-lifestyle, and she has since published Turning the Tide on Plastic and Be the Ultimate Friend of the Earth, an interactive handbook on improving our impact on the planet. Lucy is also known as an authority on the environmental and social footprint of the global fashion industry, with her book To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing out the World (and subsequent Netflix documentary, The True Cost, for which Lucy was co-executive producer) focusing on this issue. 

Along with frequent appearances on The One Show, Lucy’s broadcast experience also includes appearing as an environmental expert for BBC Breakfast, ITV’s tonight and the Today Programme. She has also judged Our Planet, a power list acknowledging women who are making a significant positive contribution to the environment, and interviewed many natural world heroes, including Sir David Attenborough, for her weekly climate podcast, So Hot Right Now. She is also a trustee for Surfers Against Sewage and kayaks daily on the River Thames removing plastic waste from the river.
