We spoke to Freddie Eastham, product lead at Bonnet and the founder of Easthouse about the exciting potential for the expansion of sustainable technology in the future.
Tell us a little bit about you and your background?
I am a Product Lead at Bonnet and the Founder of Easthouse – both prominent businesses in the software/ e-mobility sector. Prior to starting at Bonnet, I worked for notable challengers Andersen EV and Octopus EV and helped them setup best in class propositions in their respective sectors.
What is a fun fact about you?
I’m half German! I speak it fluently since my mum is fully German.
Why do you think climate change and sustainability is such an important topic today?
This is hopefully a question that most people can answer for themselves but I’ll go ahead and state the obvious – if we don’t change how we use the resources on this planet, there won’t be a ‘today’ for anyone in ~ 50 years time
What do you envision your industry looking like 10 years from now?
I can’t say what technology will be prevalent – who knows what will come out next from the brains of some of the genius’ in the sector – but I can say it will be a dominant, mass market force with a wealth of exciting innovation.
What can the average person do to make a difference?
Cut out beef & lamb. I did it at the beginning of the year and it was the easiest, cheapest thing to do that genuinely has a huge impact of CO2 emissions and land use across the planet.
