"There are three things that need to happen in fashion. One is we need to stop making clothes that people are throwing away. Two, we need to really think about how we are manufacturing. Three, we need to move towards washing machines that have [microplastic] filters in place."   


Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff engages stakeholders on solutions for people, planet, and profit. Her expertise is in communications and marketing with an emphasis on climate and conservation, as well as strategic planning, project management, and fundraising. Rachel also teaches communications through the UCSB Environmental Leadership Incubator program.


A team and thought leader, Rachel was Executive Director of the environmental health nonprofit Healthy Child Healthy World and the ocean conservation non-profit the 5 Gyres Institute; under her leadership, that organization received special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.  

Rachel is a former journalist and founder of EcoStiletto and MommyGreenest.com, who understands intuitively how storytelling connects with cause to amplify impact. Among others, her writing has been published in Women's Wear Daily (WWD), Parents, and Organic Spa (cover story); she has appeared on the “Today Show" and "CNN." 


An accomplished speaker, Rachel has given talks at XPRIZE Visioneering (2019), TEDxSantaBarbara (2017 and 2019), VOICES UK (2018), and Women in Green (2017), among many others. She was named one of New Hope Network's Top 100 Responsible Health & Wellness Influencers of 2020.


Rachel is also a creative writer who is pursuing an MFA through Pacific University's low-residency program and serves as an associate fiction editor at the Northwest Review. As a storyteller, she has performed at "Expressing Motherhood" and KPCC "UnheardLA" events.

"You can't make people feel like you're lecturing to them. You can have the most important cause in the world, but even if it is, you have to know how to tell the story."

Rachel Sarnoff is changing our world! Her passionate and inspiring work: to educate and advocate for our children, our health and our environment -- is contagious...I feel honored and blessed to have worked with her and deeply admire her strong work ethic, integrity and voracious intelligence.



Rachel has been instrumental in making the case for our technology and evolving the narrative around waste to value in the sector...Not many people can pull off that type of shift and we could not have done that without Rachel's integrity, brilliance, credibility and tenacity.
