Planet protectors

Jake Stones looks at the inspiring companies and products setting out to save the world

Not all heroes wear capes, right? Actually, most heroes don’t wear capes, because they are the everyday people working on ground-breaking – or earth-fixing, as you’ll see shortly – developments that are going to save the planet. Better still, if you thought lab coats were the only alternative to capes, think again. With an abundance of accessible, pocketable tech out there, the league of planet-savers can be found wearing jeans and a bamboo shirt, too. Although this piece is on future innovations, we all have it within our capacity to reduce the amount of fossil fuels we use every day, right now in the present – we just need to be more mindful. Whether this is reducing our use of public transport, lift sharing or cycling to work, the end result is the same – we cut our use of fossil fuels. Read on to see just some of the new and magnificent ideas being implemented in the fight to save our planet.

About Be Kind

Hello, Most of us are lucky enough to have someone who taught us how to be kind. For me, it was my dad. He showed me how to warm up a cold bumble bee in my hands and how to grow runner beans in the garden. Dad was forever picking up litter wherever we went, rescuing the baby ducklings who had slipped down the drain outside our house, and he taught me to have the utmost respect for all creatures, great and small. As the threats of climate change and plastic pollution weigh heavily on our minds, we spend so much time focusing on looking forward, concerned about the damage we have wreaked on our planet and what the future holds. However, it seems a lot of the answers to our current problems can be found by looking backwards. In this issue we talk about lessons we have learned from past generations, how to adopt a thriftier, more careful attitude to waste and the importance of sharing information. We discuss the valuable lessons we have learned from our families and friends and hope to inspire more people to go back to basics – it might just be the only way to save the world. We also had the pleasure of speaking to Deliciously Ella about making vegetables cool, Mark Griffiths shares the most wonderful images of inspiring open-water swimmers, and the Culinary Caveman gives us his top tips for successful foraging. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Editor
