About Cat Lau

Cat has a background in food and journalism. After cooking school in Paris, she returned to Thailand to work with social enterprises that support organic farmers.

Her work at Patom Organic Living is to create new and sustainable products to turn raw organic materials into socially responsible products. These products range from organic body care, food, and apparel. Cat also consults for Hill tribe Organics and Perfect Earth Foods, which supports hill tribe communities in Chiang Rai by providing them work opportunities in their own villages as organic farmers.

Responsible consumption and production is at the forefront of her work. She founded No Plastic Bangkok and has been active in reducing plastic waste in her community.

Bringing people to nature is one of her missions because she believes that our disconnect with our environment is a key reason to why we are mistreating it.
