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.
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!

We are Dorry Macaualy and Miriam Baines, two sisters and parents. We help run ‘SOS from the Kids’, this is a group of children who love singing and want to protect nature. SOS from the Kids write and sing songs as a form of climate activism, they were recently featured on Britain’s Got Talent and got to the semi-final. We help write the songs, alongside the kids, particularly Dorry’s son Sim. We also help make the videos and sort out day to day admin and practicalities.
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.
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
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.
