Although it feels like a lifetime ago now, I'm still looking back at our holiday to Barbados and the unforgettable experiences we had there. But there was one thing that cast a dark cloud over the trip... beach plastic.
We've just come back from a week in Barbados and the island took my breath away. The people were super chilled and friendly, the beaches were beautiful, there's surf and - best of all - we spotted turtles!
Armed with gardening gloves and bags for life, this weekend we took part in our first beach clean, organised by Surfers Against Sewage in Hove.
At this moment in time, I feel like we'd be hard pressed to find someone in society who wasn't aware of the plastic problem, or climate change. And as adults, it's easy for us to find out how to cut down our consumption and make small changes in our lives. But how do children feel about it all?
If I called you an activist, would you be proud or feel like I'd just offended you?
Last night, another television documentary opened our eyes to the sheer scale of the plastic pollution facing our planet. And it was tough viewing...
An important announcement was made at the start of this month which could, arguably, change the future of competitive surfing.
The statistics about plastic pollution are troublesome. So it’s fair to say that 'Turning the Tide on Plastic' by Lucy Siegle could be a pretty depressing read. But that’s not how I'd describe it.
You can't beat unzipping a tent first thing in the morning and stepping out, barefoot, onto fresh grass. It's just makes you feel...free.
Commuting to London has crept into many of my blog posts. But so have mentions of wellbeing and work-life balance. So what happened when I decided to shake everything up and make a lifestyle change?
