Great British Beach Clean - Edinburgh, Scotland
Mainstreaming sustainability, one straw at a time!
I have taken part in the Great British Beach Clean at my local beach because it makes more sense to go to the organised clean when we can collect data for making a grander difference in the UK, such as the introduction of the plastic bag levy, tackling the wet wipe issue, and making real headway in the bottle Deposit Return Scheme.
Planting Trees in Scotland
I raise awareness and reduce the use of disposable plastic, to conserve our marine ecosystems.

I volunteered to plant trees in Scotland because it was a great way to spend time off from work with a bunch of new people outdoors and off-screen.
Reducing your shower time is one of the most effective ways to minimise your water use in the home.

Are there tiny plastic microbeads in your bathroom products?
Clean the Beach
Livestock take up 83 % of farmland, provide just 18 % of calories and produce 60 % of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions associated with climate change.
Around 80% of the plastic debris polluting the ocean comes from the land - now is your chance to stop it going into the sea and entering the food chain.
