🌿🍃🌍Today is Greenpeace Day 🌍🍃🌿⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A day to take a look at this beautiful planet and appreciate it, and consider how we can give it a helping hand. We've been getting more eco-friendly products in the shop, and this one is really brilliant - its a gorgeous tray made of bamboo fibres. When you no longer want to use it, just sling it on the compost heap and it fully bio-degrades! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #greenpeaceday #greenpeace #thereisnoplanetb #conciousconsumption #compostable #plasticfree #plasticfreeseaford #saturday #saturdayvibes #weekend #weekendvibes #shopsmall #shopindie #shoplocal #seaford #eastsussex #sussexcoast

@surfersagainstsewage and @wildtribeheroes inspired Assembly to a whole school this morning! 😮I was terrified! Duffy story was loved. Thanks to all the pupils and staff at #CradleHillSchool #Seaford for listening, asking questions and totally nailing environmental awareness! I’ve a feeling my Autumn beach clean will be really busy @surfersagainstsewage 👊🏻🤙🏼 *no childcare = take the kids to ‘work’! But no fear, thanks to the welcome we got J & M trotted off to play in the reception class #growingupfast 🐠🐟🐬🐙🦑🐢🐡🐋🐳 #plasticfreeseaford #surfersagainstsewage #Seaford #theirgeneration #educate #motivate #community #environmentalcampaigner
Another meeting with another super dooper independent shop in #Seaford the fab Natalie of @stitchofbroadst Workshop planning, ideas popping with lots of creative ways to reduce single use plastic by making do, mending and creating our own items for everyday use to feel proud of! Let’s never forget that we aren’t reinventing the wheel by making wares to use everyday! thinking... ⭐️beeswax wraps ⭐️bowl covers for summer ⭐️shopping bags ⭐️cutlery pouches ⭐️if we want to reuse it, or even refill it (I’ve just about this one!) let’s make it! It’s incredibly rewarding to be approached to help people reduce their plastics either at home or in their businesses. I love being known as The Plastic Lady 🙌🏼 #plasticfreeseaford #independentretailers #lovewhereyoulive #Seaford #sussexcoast #reduce #reuse #recycle #make #do #mend #savetheplanet #noplanetb
Thanks to this guy, the husband @sumnerschris for all your help and enthusiasm for #plasticfreeseaford and the beach cleans and my campaigning. You see the highs and the lows and buy me litter pickers as a token of love. Look, he’s even got his @pokitocup out to lead by example to all of the customers who choose a disposable cup! #bethechange #parenting #lifestyleblogger #beachclean #zerowasteliving
Always in my head and heart! #plasticfreeseaford Thanks to @wearescip for a super workshop. From the look of concentration on Jacks face he loved getting arty! Plus I’ve got some great ideas to use at plastic free children’s parties that are money savers and lady!! I defo love where I live. What a great community! #Sussex #Seaford #art #community #grateful #colour #happiness #bethechange #zerowaste #plasticfreechildhood
❌Straw wrapper from a carton ❌2 bottle tops ❌wrapper from a snack ❌ice cream spoon ❌straw Beach clean finds?? No heartbreakingly all found littering our local children’s park. If parents don’t deal with litter in a place their children play what does it teach children about caring for the planet?? Don’t get me started on the fact all of these items are single use disposable plastic! #ditchsingleuseplastic #litterpick #parentalchoices #plasticfreepicnic #plasticfreeseaford #children #reuse #refill
How lovely are these Orla Kiely plates and beakers? They’re made from super sustainable bamboo so are ideal for picnics and camping, as well as being perfect if you’re trying to cut down on your plastic 🌍 . . . #orlakiely #plasticfreeseaford #singleusesucks #reuse #crockery #camping #picnic #plates #pattern #thereisnoplanetb #tweedmill #tuesday #tuesdaymorning #shopsmall #shopindie #shoplocal #seaford #sussex #sussexcoast
If this little colourful lot looks like your monthly recycling...your shopping has to change. If you know anyone who still uses plastic bottle products for single jobs like laundry/bathroom/toiletries/life! Then tell them to make the change! I’ll be creating some ‘live’ tutorials to show you how change is easy AND cost effective! Going from a plethora of plastic bottled products to glass reusable ones is a fantastic feeling not to mention less back breaking when going shopping. Change isn’t hard. It’s not learning new skills. It’s about taking time, thinking, not feeling like the million jobs you have to get done should be completed in seconds. Breath people 🙏🏼 we are destroying the planet because of our greed for time saving. It’s time to #refuse #reuse #refill THEN #recycle #rot 💙🐬💙🐬💙🐬💙 #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreeseaford #Saveourplanet #noplanetb #noexcuseforsingleuse #singleusenoexcuse #zerowastemaman #consciousconsumer #bethechange #environmentalcampaigner #supermarkets #productplacement #love #gratitude
Have you seen our paper balloons? These little buddies are a fantastic alternative to traditional balloons if you're trying to go a bit more plastic-free. They fold down flat and can be packed away and inflated (just by blowing over the hole in the top) endless times - and they're really sweet too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #plasticfree #plasticfreeseaford #saynotosingleuse #greenalternative #ecofriendly #conciousliving #kids #decorations #paper #paperballoon #sunday #sundayvibes #weekend #weekendvibes #shopsmall #shopindie #shoplocal #seaford #eastsussex #sussexcoast
This mornings #2minutebeachclean yielded some keepers! 2x hair bands (those zero waste lovers always wash then keep a found hairband) and a plastic bracelet for Matilda to keep. It still pains me when I find the ‘usual suspects’; straw, bottle lids, fishing line and fisherman’s rope. Every damn day I find them. Here’s hoping those enjoying the beach today do a #2minutebeachclean it would be so refreshing to see those enjoying the beach protect it. 💙 #singleusenoexcuse #PlasticFreeSeaford #plasticpollution #beachclean
This is the face of a frazzled, addled brain ma who just ACED giving a presentation to my local Chamber of Commerce about Plastic Free Seaford. My hair is as wild as my enthusiasm!! Today I am definitely winning!! #ditchsingleuseplastic #plasticfreeseaford #winning #changingminds #influencingpeople
🐸 It’s not always easy being green 🐸 For me it’s all about doing something enough that it becomes a habit, now I don’t leave the house without a little foldaway bag, a water bottle and of course this lovely little coffee cup. I’m also a firm believer that if you enjoy using something you’re more likely to remember it! So it helps that this cup is covered in sweet little cacti 🌵What are your top tips? . . . #itsnoteasybeinggreen #gogreen #ecofriendly #reuse #reusablecup #coffeecup #green #notosingleuseplastic #singleusesucks #outandabout #greentips #shopsmall #shopindie #shoplocal #seaford #plasticfreeseaford #sussex #sussexcoast #local
Something new! 📣✨ Bottle caps repurposed with driftwood to make quirky wall hangings! 😄 I made a huge one of these for a uni project about plastic pollution last year, and since then I’ve been steadily collecting bottle tops both from friends and through litter and beach cleaning. Bottle tops are awkward to recycle as they are made from a different plastic to the bottles that they top, so in some counties they are not accepted in general recycling. Making these little pieces gives them a new purpose, and helps to reduce littering and plastic pollution! ♻️All of the caps are cleaned thoroughly and some (the yellow ones on this one) are painted! 🐋 I am going to start selling these on my nuMonday shop as well as making them available on here! 😊 I will be making lots of these in different colours and sizes, but if you’d like something particular please do get in touch! 💬 #emmathellama
So much crap on the beach today.. including an unopened packet of indian flour, 7 bottles for #pickup1million a single sparkly jelly shoe, an unopened condom packet (how delightful!😒) and a tetrapak all the way from Turkey 👎🏻 The most disappointing part of it all is the general lack of interest and care, so many people just walk past and don’t think to just pick something up. If we’re gonna save our seas and the environment we’ve all got to do our bit!! 🐋🐠🦀🐡 #2minutebeachclean #savetheseas #surfersagainstsewage #plasticfreeseaford
Well hello to the rebrand of #plasticfreecoastlines looking smart @surfersagainstsewage 🐬 Just thrilled to bits this had to happen to reflect the fact so many inland communities wanted a piece of the action to help rid where they live of the top 6 single-use disposable plastics! Makes you SO PROUD of grassroots campaigners! @wildtribeheroes @wimborne_war_on_waste @plasticfreepledge @plasticfreeeastdulwich to name but a few! #plasticfreeseaford #plasticfreecommunities #bansingleuseplastic #ditchsingleuseplastic #environmentalcampaigner #beachclean #community #proud #grassroots
And clean... Took me less than two minutes to put this in the bin, so why didn't the lazy people who dumoed it just do that in the first place? Put it in the bin!! #2minutebeachclean I drew the line at the manky pineapple and left that for the gulls! #seaford #beach #plasticfreeseaford
Today's #2minutebeachclean on seaford beach... Trying to do our bit to keep this amazing beach and the rest of our seas being full of rubbish #seaford #beach #plastic #sussex #sussexcoast #beachlean #plasticfreeseaford
If I didn’t feel so horrific with a hangover I would have definitely have trashed my Swiss inspired #2minutebeachclean 😜 Amongst the usual suspects, tiny remains of two balloons. Makes me so sad knowing what a horrendous impact they will have made to our oceans 😥 #plasticfreeseaford #trashyourselfie #beachclean #surf #environmentalcampaigner
Well what a super evening that was! Organised by @wearescip getting the creative good of Seaford to network, swap numbers and talk! Great to be in the company of passionate creative souls. Thanks @alicecarterboxbird for mentioning my #plasticfreeseaford #zerowastemaman campaigns, not strictly creative in an art way but my thinking definitely it! @wearescip are planning an AMAZING event for Seaford, The Green Show 2019, an exhibition of contemporary illustrations with free workshops, lectures (one of these is from moi!) and films. It’s a winner! And something exceptional for the community! It needs crowdfunding so for your part if you can go to: wearescip.co.uk/justgiving A night out rarity AND we got to hang with the awesome delight @kittiekipper was just what the Dr ordered! 🌳💗💛💙🌳 #Seaford #community #artwave #educate #celebrate #motivate #creativity #reuse #recycle #grateful
Thanks for the white feather universe. A sign of how brilliant a meeting I had this morning was with a local business about Plastic Free Seaford was. I’m very Excited!! More to tell after 30th July....👊🏻👏🏼🙏🏼 #plasticfreeseaford #community #workshops #future #planning #motivating #educating #believe #singleusenoexcuse #theresnoplanetb
I love my produce bags from @carrinetsweden I used mine this morning in my local bakery #Burts in #Seaford . Everywhere I use them all shop owners are totally fine with it some saying there has been an increase in BYO produce bags/containers! 💥 boom! To the #reuse #refill #refuse generation! @lakelanduk i hope you’re doing a roaring trade in the bags! #plasticfreeseaford #reuse #LakelandUK #producebags #zerowaste #shopconciously
Word. Campaigning is my life’s work that’s a no brainer to me. The passion it has ignited in my brain is awesome! But coupled with full-time motherhood, I’ll be honest, it is really really tough! Today’s intention was to work on my #plasticfreeseaford campaign 👊🏻 The reality is #exhausted #fuzzybrain It’s a double edged sword when everything you’ve wanted in the world is utterly reliant on you, making you feel like Wonder Woman in the one hand, a failure that wants to scream on the other. So if this is resonating with any of you beauts of followers, you’re not alone! Being a fab person/doing your bit/being strong doesn’t mean working yourself so hard you can’t remember your own name or blame forgetting an appointment on sleep deprivation when in reality you just had a stupid moment! Non campaigning post over. As you were in the fight against plastic pollution. 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻 #motherhood #parenting #campaigning #juggling #theirgeneration #motivate #gratitude #dowhatmatters #maman #zerowaste #plasticfreeliving #overwhelmed #wonderwoman #love #life #children
Just gave my first Duffy Assembly! @wildtribeheroes at one of my local Primary schools, Seaford Primary. It went really well and they are totally on board in combatting single use plastic by firstly organising a #lunchboxchallenge next term! 🐢 Power to the mini beach cleaners generation 👊🏻💚🌍 #Seaford #plasticfreeseaford #plasticfreecommunities #theirgeneration #minibeachcleaners
I walked to the #plasticfreeseaford meeting a couple of nights ago, picked this lot up and more on the way there. @zero_waste_maman is putting a huge amount of time and effort in driving the community campaign to help our little town become a better and more conscious place, asking businesses to take the plastic free pledge. Her talk was met with lots of questions from the community but sadly no business owners came to the meeting. If anyone has any advice on how we can get the ball rolling here without seemingly finger pointing at businesses I think it would be greatly received! I know @cleanerseasproject has had huge success in their town of Bude and maybe it would be cool if we could get some pointers as to where we go from here!! Maybe dm Claire @zero_waste_maman if you can offer any tips on how to get the ball rolling that would be really helpful ☀️ hope you all had lovely lucid dreams under that big old moon last night xxx happy Friday 🤩#2minutebeachclean #plasticproject #plasticpollution #ghostnet #ghostgear #fishingline #marineconservation #marineplastics #beachclean #litterpick #handmade #beachcombing #litterati #take3forthesea #justgrabbits #cleanoceans #surfersagainstsewage #repurpose #reuse #recycle #beachclean #beachcleaners #wethechange #ghostnetbowl #ghostnetweaving #weaversofinstagram #fibreart

We are supporting Seafords campaign to become plastic free! There is a meeting at the town council tonight for anyone who is interested in finding out what this means for businesses and individuals in the town! See you there from 7.30 #seaford #plasticfreeseaford #sussex #plasticfree #zerowaste #community #seafordTowncouncil #scip
YAAS! @surfersagainstsewage the first Public Meeting for my #plasticfreeSeaford campaign is Wednesday 27th June, 7.30pm at Seaford Town Council offices. Excited - yes! 😀 Great to be supported by my local council and @lewesdistrictcouncil Expecting a big turn out? -🤔 Nervous? - 🙄a little as I have faced some backlash but I'm ready, informed and have the best will in the world to make change happen 👊 #plasticfreeliving #environmentalcampaigner #surfersagainstsewage #plasticfreeSeaford #Sussex #community #SouthCoast #reuse #refill #recycle #educate #motivate #beachclean #lovewhereyoulive #wastenotwantnot
It's a high five sort of day! Meeting with @lewesdistrictcouncil and Eastbourne Borough Council to discuss how we can carry forward #plasticfreecommunities campaigns like my @surfersagainstsewage #plasticfreeSeaford campaign. Working together is at the heart of what going plastic free is all about. Really happy to be taken seriously by two big Sussex Councils! Brilliant they want to work with me to lead by example. That's the only way to change Society and their lack of thought to waste created by single-use plastic and how disposable plastics are destroying oceans. Matilda came with me, always a worry when i organise meetings, but...super pleased to say (as ever) she was an added bonus, demonstrates the point why environmental campaigning is my passion and heart and why being a full-time mama is a position, its a job! so this is all about flexible working! Ending up having a divine coffee and bagel at the stunning @lewes_depot that fully supports being single-use plastic free. It's a BOOM! Kinda midday!! 👊🤘😎 #cohesion #communityaction #council #politics #plasticfreeliving #nomoresingleuseplastic #singleusenoexcuse #Sussex #blueplanet #environmentalcampaigner
At least once a week the kiddos and I nail it! 👊#harmonywithtoddlers I get to work like a trojan for a morning on #plasticfreeSeaford , writing articles, job hunting, whilst my babies are ignored by their loving mother standing way too close to the square nanny being fed a diet of 'yes you can have another slice of cake for breakfast'. 👌🐒🐒😬 #workingmothers #fulltimemotherhood #environmentalcampaigner #multitasking #nailedanarticleby9am #stressful #hardwork #isitworthit #zerowastemaman #steps #flexibleworkingisessential #jugglingact #needapaidjobsoon #see -saw #children #career #parenting #valueofmothers #optimism
Oh @morrisons how contrary you are. On the one hand you're encouraging customers to bring in their own containers 👌insert smiley face 😀 but in the other you have single-use take-away plastic salad containers and STILL have a Disposable plastic section in an.aisle. 👎insert confused?😲 Sarcastic?🙃 Angry?😠 face. Sort it out Supermarkets!! You need to take responsibility for the message you're putting out there to those less concerned by the plastic epidemic especially children. #sortitout #supermarkets #responsibility #singleusenoexcuse #noexcuseforsingleuse #Morrisons #Seaford #plasticfreeSeaford #ditchdisposables #saladdodger
Take away and Throw away doesn't mean it goes away 😤 My daughter knows that and she's not even 2.👊 How do we stop litter?? 1984 approach? 🤷 #dontbeatosser #beachclean #theirgeneration #SussexCoast #Plasticfreecoastlines #surfersagainstsewage #plasticfreeSeaford #standuptotheignorant #keepbritaintidy #respect #environmentalcampaigner #motherslove #baslespailles #saveouroceans #noplanetb
