Our new series focuses on eco heroes who are striving to save the planet and educate people in how to do beter in their day-to-day lives. Our irst Eco Hero is environmental activist and artist Kitie Kipper. Ella Foote met her at Tide Mills Beach

“Everyone thinks they are doing the right thing by recycling. But the best thing you can do for the planet is completely avoid plastic. Plastic free is the best way,” says Caroline Bond, fibre artist and activist. We are sliding down the pebble ledge at Tide Mills beach near Seaford in East Sussex.

Caroline has a beach cleaning bag under her arm. “It is better to collect as I walk back along the beach, rather than from the beginning,” she says. “Otherwise I ill the bag quickly and have to carry it twice as far.” It makes sense, but ignoring the scale of the rubbish as we walk becomes increasingly difficult. It seems overwhelming.
