Georgina Downs is a British journalist who is a campaigner on health effects of pesticides. After experiencing chronic illness throughout her childhood and adolescence, she launched a campaign against the use of pesticides in industrial agriculture.
Since 2006 Downs has been registered as a journalist with both the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) and the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists (BGAJ).
Downs won a British Environment and Media Awards (BEMA) in 2006, and was one of the winners at the inaugural Cosmopolitan Awards also in 2006 winning the Heroine award. She was awarded the Daily Mail's first "Inspirational Eco Woman of the Year" and as part of the prize went to 10 Downing Street to meet with the then Prime Minister's wife Sarah Brown.
In 2015 Downs was nominated for the The Observer Ethical Awards to find the best green Briton. A report in The Guardian said her work "promotes a vision of a green and sustainable Britain where non-chemical and natural farming methods are widely adopted."
