Karen founded Toiletries Amnesty in 2014, an award-winning NGO working to end hygiene poverty and beauty industry waste, supporting millions of people around the world every year, whilst diverting thousands of tonnes of toiletries from landfill.

Toiletries Amnesty was the first organisation in the UK to tackle hygiene poverty and is the only public directory that allows individuals and businesses to see exactly where their donations are making an impact in their communities and beyond.

The organisation works around the world supporting charities and organisations, creating positive and practical solutions for beauty industry waste and sustainability issues, and connecting communities and consumers who want to see a change for good.

 In 2022 Karen was awarded a Barclays Social Entrepreneur Award for positively driving social and environmental change through business, having also received the Global X Foundation Award for Innovation in 2018.
