The use of pesticides is becoming an ecological disaster that somehow remains very much below the public radar (and mine). Legislation needs stepping up, but I need to step up too and . Do you?

Inspired by the young people on the climate protest. They are right: politics isn’t coming close to displaying the urgency needed given the scale of the problem. This must change.

I also have to say that even when a plastic alternative is available, I am cautious as to it's potential to be a solution. In some cases recyclable plastic might be better than some of these whilst we don't have the waste streams to deal with them.

Aim for recycleable or reusable if there has to be some plastic. Sometimes the situation/time pressures don't allow for this though. Online purchases often contain sneaky plastic too, even from ethical stores. If it can't be recycled I try to find a reuse. Not always possible.

It's nice to hear the honesty about this. Sometimes the choice just isn't there when you need it. We aren't all perfect but at least we're trying 😊

Every coffee cup, every water bottle, every bag - every day, we have the opportunity to make a difference. Let’s say no to single-use plastic and change our throwaway culture. 🌊

Struck by a worrying eg of our short term preoccupations this morning: the ‘all insects wiped out within a century, causing catastrophic consequences for the survival of mankind’ story barely scraped the headlines, then bumped entirely because Boris said something about Brexit.

Shocking isn't it, but then 1.4 million pads are flushed down toilets in the UK every day, which is even more horrifying! Unnecessary plastic content with avoidable environmental impacts!

It's awful isn't it, so much comes from drivers throwing it out of Windows. It looks awful and the poor plants and wildlife suffers.
