Haley Everitt is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Geography and Environment at Western University under the supervision of Dr. Jason Gilliland within the Human Environments Analysis Laboratory. The objectives of her PhD research are to: (1) determine the quantity and composition of household food waste during COVID-19 using a direct measurement methodology; (2) investigate the relationships between pro-environmental knowledge, attitudes and behaviours, and household food wasting; and (3) develop and evaluate the effectiveness of household food waste reduction interventions that could be applied in conjunction with the future implementation of a municipal green bin program in London, Ontario where her research is situated. Haley’s research will fill existing gaps in our current knowledge of the impacts of COVID-19 on waste management and will further our understanding of how household demographics, socioeconomic characteristics, and pro-environmental knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours relate to food waste generation and reduction. Her previous experience as a Sustainability Consultant in the waste management industry sparked a passion for waste reduction and diversion, as she witnessed first-hand the inefficiencies of our current waste management practices and programs. Haley believes that further research is critical for the creation of feasible and meaningful solutions to waste management issues, and she is determined to positively contribute to this field of study by filling gaps in current knowledge and developing solutions to address our ‘throw-away’ society.
