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!).

Bitesize blog – Thoughts from @ simplelife.freelychosen

In 2020, during the pandemic, small businesses were really struggling and there were lots of calls to support local businesses more. Plus, there were also BLM rallies going on and I heard lots of speakers asking for us to buy from Black-owned businesses. It all made me realise my money could have a much bigger impact if I chose to spend it with businesses who represent my personal values, rather than with the big chain companies who we all know are doing horrendous, unethical things.
I then started researching better places to buy from, better companies to support. I already boycotted Amazon and Shein, but now I was looking for a sustainable option every time I went to buy something new. And I thought, more people need to know about these sustainable companies!

Bitesize Blog – Thoughts from @ Call Us Angels

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. 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.

Bitesize Blog – Thoughts from @ Harriets Plants

I’ve made it very clear on my social media how important this planet is. The sea, the land and everything in between.  The climate crisis saddens me no end.  It hurts me that we as humans have caused irreparable damage to the earth that serves us so well. I think there are many topics within the climate crisis that need to be discussed and more and more people need to make changes to their habits in order to help the planet recover. That is one of the main reasons why my journal is trying to bring more topics to the surface for people to educate themselves and ultimately make those changes.

Discover eco

Bitesize Blog – Thoughts from @ Discover Eco

During the second COVID lockdown at the beginning of 2021 I was reflecting on my personal impact on the world. I’ve always imagined myself to be fairly eco conscious. Growing up I’d spent a lot of time outside in the great outdoors and had spent time at eco festivals with my family. However, one day I was thinking that during these periods of lockdowns I had personally saved a lot of money from not having to commute to work each day. This triggered a domino effect, everything I looked at around the house got me thinking, ‘is that the best I can do?’, ‘Where else can I save money’. This mindset quickly changed to how can I help save the planet!

Conscious Traveller

Bitesize Blog – Thoughts from @ the conscious traveller__

My dad called me ‘too moral’ the other day when I pointed out that Amazon is an unethical company, which is funny but also quite sad. I find some people get quite hostile and challenging about my decisions and when I share information regarding ethics. I think when people actively make eco-friendly changes in their lives, others can get defensive as if they’re being attacked. It’s an issue, and one that people must work through within themselves. We don’t want people holding back on making positive change in fear of other peoples opinions and judgments.

Bitesize Blog – Thoughts from @ The Green Mum

It scares me a lot. I take the advice of the UN’s Climate Change experts very seriously. They are saying that we have less than ten years to seriously amend our way of living so that we decrease the amount of carbon we emit into the atmosphere. It is frustrating that governmental bodies don’t seem to be taking this warning to heart. I do what I can at home, teach others impacts they can make, and write emails and sign petitions in the hopes of affecting change at a higher level

Bitesize Blog – Thoughts from @ Poppy Okotcha

Giving up flying was incredibly hard because I currently make my money as a model and travel is a big part of that. I found changing my perspective on travel made a big difference. Seeing it as an adventure and learning experience to be savoured…rather than something to be rushed through as just a means to get from A to B. I feel this slowing down and enjoying the ride rather than just the destination is something working with plants teaches you too.​
