Skye Blackburn, 2011 Anthill 30under30 Honourable Mention

Getting people to eat bugs can make for some infectious PR. At least it has for Skye Blackburn, who has made a business out of her lifelong insect obsession. "In Australia were are part of the minority of the world's population that don't eat bugs," says the founder of Butterfly Skye's Bug Shop.

Her bug shop then introduced critter-filled lollipops at an animal expo, and she now estimates she sells a thousand of the treats every week.
