I was lucky enough to grow up in the heart of Cornwall with a fun-loving, adventure-seeking family. If I wasn’t in the water with my big brother, I was up a hill, or in the garden making magic potions out of plants.
The coast has always been a constant in my life and it’s the place I rely on for relaxation, adventure and comfort. Now I live in a flat full of surfers overlooking my favourite beach, so I’m reminded every day of the awesome world we live in and why it is critical that we protect it.
I’ve volunteered at a number of SAS beach cleans in the past and have been a big fan of their work for years. I feel passionate about and totally in tune with the SAS ethos and still can’t quite believe I get to call this my job.
My travel bug has taken me all over the world and I’ve been fortunate enough to visit some breath-taking beaches, mountains and forests, and meet some pretty inspiring human beings. One thing that breaks my heart is seeing how even the most isolated and beautiful parts of the world aren’t safe from plastic pollution – grrr!
A few years back, I turned veggie, invested in a purifier bottle so I never had to buy bottled water again, bought a metal straw and wooden cutlery, and refused plastic bags left, right and centre. I try to make sure that everything I do is with the environment in mind – right down to the foods I eat, the products I buy (or rather, don’t buy) and the organisations I support. I’m by no means perfect, but I try my best… apart from a few naughty flights here and there. Guilty!
