“Your compass for solutions.”
Advice in the field of Waste Management and Marine

Charlutions works together with entrepreneurs, local people and
government by supporting and guiding them towards the
implementation of a circular economy. Waste has a residual value that
can be used.

How do you become circular? Or how do you manage to create less
(plastic) waste? After a waste management scan, implementing
‘hands on’ applications in conjunction with all parties involved.
Making entrepreneurs and governments aware of the importance of
the circular economy and the added value of this investment.

Circularity contributes to the balance for “People, Planet and
We are happy to help you save time and money with our circular
business models.

About Me

After 10 years working in the field of Facility management and Project management, the turning point came to combine my knowledge and
experiences and passion (the underwater world).
With experience in the Netherlands and abroad (Maldives, Philippines and Fiji). I have a broad knowledge in the field of marine life, conducting
research and monitoring project objectives.
When I am asked where my strengths lie, I can best describe them as driven and involved, with a broad knowledge and experience,
communicative skills and a pragmatic attitude.
I think in “Charlutions”. People, Nature and Environment are central to me.

Charlutions provides advice in the field of waste management and marine conservation, creates a Plan of Approach and, if desired, offers support in
the implementation and evaluation of the objectives.

I’ve had a pleasure to work with Charlotte Hesterman as a marine conservation intern over the months of April-June, part of the GVI volunteering program. Charlotte, in her role as a dive officer, instructor and a mentor, has been a real role model and excellent team player. She’s always been incredibly helpful and thorough in her training and briefing activities. Charlotte has a sincere passion for diving and marine conservation which makes working with her extremely enjoyable and rewarding. In her capacity as a mentor, I found Charlotte inspirational and supportive, always ready to listen and offer help. I would wholeheartedly recommend Charlotte to any prospective employer, as a highly skilled and dedicated individual with an incredible personality creating positive atmosphere around her.
