THE PLASTIC PROBLEM IN OUR SEAS

THE PLASTIC PROBLEM IN OUR SEAS

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

More than two decades ago I had a conversation with the lovely Actor, Alison Steadman, who was then married to legendary Film Director Mike Leigh.  They were already heavily into promoting environmental issues of pollution and waste, and educated me into the hazards of buying coloured loo paper, saying it was non-biodegradable.  I have bought the white stuff ever since.

So where did it all go wrong, and why is it only now we are being made aware of the amount of plastic in the World’s oceans, which is set to treble in the next decade unless drastic action is taken to prevent it.

We have been warned that plastic is one of the most enormous threats facing the world’s seas, along with metal and chemical pollution.

It has apparently been swept under the carpet or beds of the Ocean for decades, and now only as it is now at danger level are we on high alert where our sea waters are concerned.

The Netherlands, who are famous for their environmentally friendly approach, have led the way by opening the World’s first plastic-free supermarket aisle and other Nations are encouraged to follow.

But we need to take it further and take control through research and awareness before the problem escalates even more.

Louise Edge, Senior Oceans campaigner at Greenpeace UK warns us “Plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats facing our oceans, with items ranging from whole plastic bottles to tiny microplastics being found in seas all around the world”.

“If strong action isn’t taken now, the problem will get exponentially worse. More research is needed on the many different facets of plastic pollution, but it is already clear that we must end our relationship with throwaway plastic and find alternative packaging solutions which won’t harm our environment.”

Professor Edward Hill, executive director of the National Oceanography Centre, said it was time to change the “out of sight, out of mind” attitude to the world’s oceans.

He said the Blue Planet television series has helped people visualise what is going on in the oceans, provoking both wonder at what is down there and horror at the impact humans are having.

“It’s this sense of the unexplored world on our own planet, but also it’s important to us. We know less about the bottom of the sea than the moon or Mars, but nothing lives on the moon or Mars, but things live in our ocean and they’re vitally important to us,” he said.

If we want to contribute to the awareness of this alarming discovery, we can make a difference by creating plastic free awareness in our own homes, and pass the knowledge onto our kids, so that they lead by example.  If you click onto www.plasticfreetuesday.com, it will give you some great tips for the start of your own plastic free awareness campaign.

Have an Adventure and Follow Your Dream

Reading Time: 6 minutes

 

If you suddenly have the urge to head off for a break which you haven’t yet planned, why not have an ‘adventure’ which could be the holiday of a lifetime.

You may feel restricted by pets or children, but that should not be an excuse for something a little bit ‘outside the box’, even if in this country.  Have an adventure, not just a holiday.

So let’s start with kids and pets – how about hiring a Campervan and driving to some of the more rural parts of Scotland the Cornish coast, there are some exciting places to discover,  – fabulous dog walks and brilliant kids activities and prevent them from being bored.   You can also check into one of the child and pet friendly cottages across the country which are geared to give you everything you need for a family break.

Check out Waterside Breaks www.watersidebreaks.co.uk – a family run business – and speak with one of their holiay gurus who will give you personal advice on where to go and what to do when you are there.  They really do some excellent ‘bespoke’ packages, with no time spared in talking you through your options.

If you have teenagers and have trouble in keeping them entertained then consider a teenager friendly vacation in Croatia with Responsible Travel, www.responsibletravel.co.uk. This is the perfect Family multi activity holiday. Set on the Adriatic sea, sits the stunning Croatia. A hugely varied country with isolated islands, sweeping meadows, vineyards & crystal clear rivers.

If you want to go further afield, and really want to ‘travel adult only’, then why don’t you fulfil that lifelong ambition and go on one of the adventure holidays from www.exodus.co.uk.

We spotted a great one in Botswana, a country very close to the hearts of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who reportedly fell in love in this romantic country.  Check these out and see if it ticks any boxes for you.

Botswana is a vast, sparsely populated country, mostly desert but with the most prolific wetlands in Africa. Holidays in Botswana are thrilling, and it’s well worth the effort required to reach some of its more remote places. The reserves of Chobe, Savuti, the prolific Moremi and the unique Okavango Delta are sensational, both in the summer, for birds especially, and in the dry autumn, winter and spring months, for bigger game. It is the largest elephant corridor in the world and the herds along the Chobe River can number in their thousands. The Okavango is the biggest inland delta anywhere; paddling through its reed-lined channels in a Mokoro (dugout canoe), watching the pristine wilderness slip by, is a most memorable experience.

DOGGY FUN DAYCARE – A WONDER WORLD FOR ANIMALS

DOGGY FUN DAYCARE – A WONDER WORLD FOR ANIMALS

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

If you have any reservations at all for sending your beloved dog to be looked after when you are working, we have made the discovery of a lifetime.

Doggy Fun Daycare is the brainchild of Nic and Gary Worthington, who have recently relocated to Norfolk, and with a plethora of land and a world of ideas for a new business startup, but they decided to follow their passion and have set up the most exquisite day care centre for dogs.

As Nic says ‘I am amazed how quickly it has taken off considering how many people are doing it!  I think the videos really help as I have some really great dogs that are the stars of these hilarious clips.  I have benchmarked other doggy day care websites and there is no fun to them!  I think it also helps that we have a bespoke fully enclosed  play paddock for them to run free and be nutters!  The Client’s are updated throughout the day with the clips via WhatsApp so that they are not fretting as I used to do when leaving Tilly.  Anyone holidaying in Norfolk too can drop off their beloved dog’.

Nic was already the owner of Tilly, a beautiful black Labrador, who really is her ‘baby’ and was quite apprehensive at first when considering how she would be able to look after other dogs as well as her own.  But decided to give it a try and the rest is history with dog owners driving from far and wide to experience her five star doggy fun daycare.

Nic not only looks after the dogs with constant care and attention, but she makes sure they are stimulated with games throughout the day, as you can see from some of her videos, which we have all found both heartwarming and hilarious.

Her husband Gary joins in as much as he can on his free days from a job he has with the NHS, and so there is no love spared as the dogs delight in dedicated loving care and attention.

It is definitely the ‘soul’ project of the animal loving couple.  So much so that local dogs who have spent just a day or so in their care can’t wait to get back, and have been known to try to break through the gate when passing by with their owners.

Nic has now added an overnight facility for dogs to board, offering the dogs a home from home environment with soft beds and sofas galore and we would recommend that you put your name down early wherever you are based, as she is guaranteed to be fully booked as news gets out of her exclusive doggy daycare facility.

Reasons to choose:

  • Fully Licenced with North Norfolk Council
  • Home from Home Environment
  • 24 Hour Supervision
  • Two Walks per day
  • Bespoke Fully Enclosed Play Paddock
  • Regular Photos and Videos throughout the day of your Dog via WhatsApp
  • Love and Attention given to each dog
