Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

My name is Charlotte & I’m the face behind Call us Angels, an Instagram account aiming to make issues on climate change & sustainability more accessible. When I’m not out litter picking or learning more about climate change, I’m usually running about like headless chicken as a marketing Project Manager.

Where can people follow your blog?

You can find me on Instagram by following



What made you start your blog?

I started my Instagram in 2020 during my Masters. I explored the relationship between gender and the ecological crisis by making massive angel wings out of trash. Since then, has expanded, sharing info on climate change & sustainability too!

What are your thoughts on Climate Change?

Climate change is happening now! In the UK we’re experiencing higher than average temperatures for this time of year. In the global south, communities are on the front line of climate change. Western mainstream media & politicians seem to be ignoring the severity of the situation & that fills me with dread.

Have you changed much about your lifestyle?

Every day I’m learning to live more sustainably. But it isn’t easy! There are so many ups & downs, but it’s important to remember each sustainable change you make, does make a difference!

What sort of reactions do you get from people who come across this?

When I first started, a lot of people were very confused by the massive trash wings! But the more people I meet in the eco community, the more I feel inspired & welcomed!


What changes have you found the hardest to make and what have you done to overcome them?

Travelling is a big part of my life – from driving to work because of lacking public transport, to taking planes to visit family abroad. There’s no simple solution to this, but I’m trying to work out ways to travel slower & counteract my carbon footprint.

What is your biggest fear about the future?

My biggest fear is that we don’t do enough to stop the climate & ecological crisis. I worry that vulnerable people in society will be impacted the most.

Who is your biggest inspiration?

This is such a difficult question as there are so many people who have inspired me in one way or another! I’d have to say the women in my family & my friends are incredibly strong & are a constant source of inspiration for me. Every single one of them has supported me during difficult moments in my life, and for that I am so grateful!

What is the one thing you would like people to take away from this?

That you don’t have to be an ‘expert’ to be eco! That you don’t have to think of yourself as ‘strong’ to join the fight against the climate & ecological crisis. Community is key & together we can all make a difference.

Do you have any advice for Appletree and Avalon?

Whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed, whether that’s work stress or fears for the future, I step outside & into nature. Make sure you take those moments to pause & get outdoors too.

Wow, what wise words from CUA, I certainly do take those moments in nature where I can & when I can. It is my most favourite thing to do & is why we need to stand together to protect it.

Bitesize blog – Thoughts from @ Action_Nan

I go by several names depending on who I’m with and what I’m doing. For my environmental work I’m known as Action Nan – taking part in regular litter picks and sharing content with my almost 7k following. I’m also the owner of award winning Bosinver Farm Cottages where I’m known as Nanny Pat. To everyone else, I’m Pat Smith. No matter who I am, my passion for the natural environment not only in Cornwall but across the world is at the centre of everything I do. I try to share my love for the natural world with my four grandchildren and guests’ children so they can experience the same joy and wonder of nature in the hope that they will also love and take care of the environment in their turn.
As David Attenborough says:
“No one will protect what they don’t care about, and no one will care about what they have never experienced.”

Bitesize blog – Thoughts from @ david_ecolife

Hello! My name is David and I’m very lucky to have had my whole (short) career so far in the sustainable and conservation sectors, currently at a London University. I’m probably the definition of an imperfect environmentalist, and decided to transform my own micro-Instagram World into documenting my own ever learning sustainable journey a few years ago. With long-walks, the odd painting and commission and a love of wildlife that pretty much sums me up! It started with Instagram in 2020, during the first covid lockdown. I always used social media, but on a personal level mostly just selfies or my paintings (and to some extent it still is!).
