Promoting Sustainability through Nutrition.
Our latest Team Century member promotes sustainability from the inside out. Ella Mills is an award-winning cookery author, entrepreneur, and champion of plant-based living. Read on to learn how Ella’s nutritional goals support human health and global sustainability.
Ella launched her popular recipe website, deliciouslyella.com, 10 years ago. Originally the website was intended to be a personal project, a way to encourage herself to fall in love with plant-based food and make healthy eating delicious.
Hitting the nail on the head.
Unexpectedly her journey – as chronicled on her website – struck a chord with millions of health and environmentally conscious people worldwide.
Becoming a brand.
This interest led Ella to create a community of three million people across social media, launch a wellbeing app, a range of plant-based food products into retail and write numerous best-selling cookbooks, all under the Deliciously Ella brand.
By making a small change in the way we eat, we can get closer to reach our goal of the century.
Q&A with Ella Mills.
I take my two little girls to football lessons on the weekend too, they’re slowly getting the hang of it and feel very proud when they get the ball into the net."
Scaling a company is incredibly challenging, each step forward brings new and unexpected challenges, and you have to pick yourself up time and time again. The motivation to keep pushing comes from our community. Nothing makes me prouder than hearing the difference we make to people’s lives. My long-term goal is to spread this message even further, helping thousands, maybe even millions of people to improve their health and wellbeing."
"I’m passionate about Hyundai’s goal to unite everyone around a sustainable approach to our future. We desperately need to make a change and if I can help with that in any way then it’s truly an honor."
"Changing the way that we eat, more plants, for more people, more of the time. It’s about making small, simple changes – trying meat-free Monday, incorporating an extra portion of fruit or veg into each meal and cutting back on your animal protein intake."
Spread the word.
"My long-term goal is to spread this message even further, helping thousands, maybe even millions of people to improve their health and wellbeing."
Suddenly the need to protect our planet for the future became incredibly tangible. The 27th (of July) is the date of my first daughter’s birthday and marks that shift in my mindset and that increased passion to shape our future."
"To continue to expand that. Changing the preconceptions that this type of food is boring and bland is key. We have to enjoy what we eat for it to be truly sustainable, it’s impossible to make long-term change if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing."
