Having grown up on small farm in rural Ireland close to the sea, James has a strong passion for the natural world that surrounds and provides for us.
James graduated with an honours degree in Agricultural Science from University College Dublin and spent some time travelling abroad. It became clear to James, that on-going human activity and expansion was having a negative effect on the environment and he realised that small improvements over a long time could lead to big changes.
After travelling James returned home and worked in the family business for some time while trying to find a sustainable business model which would help address his concerns.
In 2004, James along with his father Anthony co-founded Leinster Environmentals and they installed their first plastic recycling equipment. Leinster Environmentals shipped their first orders in January 2006. Since then, the team has grown from strength to strength. Leinster Environmentals have now diverted almost 400,000 tonnes (20,000 truck loads) of waste plastics from landfills, incinerators and oceans by converting this waste material into high quality raw materials used by plastic moulding companies across the world.
