Founder of Lite Foot Company
Katie Rodgers-Hubbard moved to Savannah in July of 2020. Having lived in Germany, a country that’s quite advanced in its sustainability endeavors, and then conversely, small towns in the U.S.A., where a recycle bin was nowhere in sight, Katie began asking questions that she learned through her prior career in Higher Education Administration. Questions like—What can I do to educate people on the need for shopping sustainable? What programs, events or curriculum can I develop that will tackle such a complex issue?

Her goal is to help the community of Savannah reduce its carbon footprint but reduce plastic and needless packaging.

Katie is also in the works of starting Lite Foot Environmental Foundation, a 501(c)(3), dedicated to implementing community programs to further make an impact on this community’s carbon footprint.
