Dermot Kavanagh

Ambassador

Dermot is co-founder of Plog-olution a movement that has been set up to promote healthy and happy communities. Dermot started his working life in retail which he soon grew tired of and decided to try something a bit different. He joined the Army Reservists and became a bin lorry driver for Kensington and Chelsea council. Earlier this year he gave this job up to pursue his dream of becoming a personal trainer. Dermot worked with charity Veterans for Wildlife and flew out to South Africa to help man a radar system that stops poachers who are trying to get hold of rhino horns. He created Plog-olution along with friend Michelle to combine his passion for the environment and a passion for well being. Several successful plogs later, and Dermot is excited to see how Plog-olution will grow in the future and continue to engage and inspire more communities.
