Mona Weiss' Summary

I'm Mona, co-founder of Eco Nuts. I'm a scientist, actress, model, comedian and an authority on all things Truly Eco. I've done wildlife rehab, studied salamanders in western MA, marine and freshwater ecology in eastern MA, discovered new species of micro spiders in the Costa Rican rain forest, and worked with leopards, lions, and bears.

I've been in movies and on TV since I was a child, getting my start as a regular on Sesame Street, and now I also help others become more eco friendly and do better for both themselves and the planet. In 2009 I teamed up with my better half: Pirates of the Caribbean actor and ecological enthusiast, Scott Shields. Together we founded an eco-friendly company, Eco Nuts specializing in laundry and cleaning products. Our mission is to bring earth-friendly products to the marketplace in compostable or recycleable packaging with little or no plastic.

I appeared on the hit TV show Shark Tank with my company a few years ago and now I also do speaking engagements.
