I have an MPS condition but it hasn’t stopped me from finding ways to make a difference to the world
I began writing a blog on sustainability just over a year ago, it started with a beauty and fashion approach where I stopped purchasing any new clothes or makeup for a year. I wanted to do this because I found that the beauty and fashion industries are two of the biggest contributors to textile and plastic pollution and global carbon emissions, more than aviation and shipping combined.
Through my blog, Beauty and the Beaches, I aim to inform and raise awareness of the changes needed for a more sustainable future. Keeping a positive approach, I focus on things people can do now to make a difference and cover topics such as sustainable fashion, sustainable beauty and reducing unnecessary waste and plastic as much as possible.
I’m doing my best to go plastic-free and reduce waste and I want to highlight the importance of buying from independent and local producers instead of the well-known supermarket chains.
Keeping our oceans clean and plastic-free is especially important to me. I’ve always loved the water from a very young age as I could swim better than I could walk. I’m a member of my beach cleaning community, however, due to my reduced mobility I can’t always take part but I love the sea and I really hope for a cleaner future for our oceans and their inhabitants.
