Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside…

If you ask someone where they feel happiest, calmest and most at peace, the answer is often by the sea. But, with time, the coastlines we’ve grown to love have started to change as a direct result of our consumption. Will we still pine for fresh air and salty chips if we have to wade through carrier bags and cigarette butts to find a clean patch of sand? Will we brace ourselves for a dip in the chilly water if the water is riddled with bottles and tampon applicators? Will deckchairs and beach huts become a thing of the past, left to rot and ruin because, in fact, nobody wants to be beside the seaside…?

About Be Kind

Hello, A warm welcome to our very first issue. I wonder what led you to pick up our magazine from the stand? Perhaps the striking image caught your eye? Or, maybe the title, Be Kind, struck a chord? Either way, we hope you’re here because you, too, want to make the world a better place. It’s a scary and uncertain time, as we watch our seas fill with plastic, our bins bulge and our air become dense with fumes and pollution. Each month, these pages will be packed with positive, proactive solutions to help you make small, achievable changes that will have a much bigger global impact. This month we’re focusing in on the huge problem of plastic. As one of the biggest, most talked about environmental issues of the last year, plastic has affected every corner of the earth and all aspects of the environment. From ditching straws and water bottles, to who to follow on Instagram for zero-waste inspiration, we’ve rounded up some motivating ideas to help you reduce your own footprint. We all need to learn to tread a little more lightly, and it’s these small steps that will spark and inspire greater progress. Showing a little kindness is what the world needs right now. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Editor
