INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS

@oceanbottle

Whilst discussing the future of Call Us Angels, a fellow angel suggested I look at @oceanbottle for inspiration. Ocean Bottle are a company who litter pick rubbish from seas and beaches and use it to make reusable water bottles. The money they make from selling these bottles allows them to continue to clean up local areas and improve ecological habitats. I want to keep Call Us Angels growing and thriving. Like Ocean Bottle, I want to continue to work with local communities to litter pick and learn about the impact the ecological crisis will have on women around the world. Maybe it is possible to keep this project alive...

WEBSITES

Form Nutrition

Form Nutrition is a vegan and sustainable protein company. This will be a super useful company to look at if you are into your fitness, or if you need some extra protein to be included in your diet. I have yet to try Form Nutrition, but a fellow angel informs me they're tasty and nutritious and are great for making smoothies.

PROJECTS

The Community Brain's SHEDx

I love projects that work with local communities to create something informative and beautiful. SHEDx, a public artwork, takes place in Tolworth. It involves the local community coming together to plant seeds, experience nature and re-imagine what their urban landscape might look like. A fellow angel sent this to me as they felt Call Us Angels should try to do a similar thing: work with local communities to re-imagine what their local spaces should look like (litter free), and learn about the ecological crisis.

If any of you know of any other projects like SHEDx, please get in touch as I always find these project super inspiring! 

ARTICLES

Beth Gardiner's 'Ocean Justice: where social equity and the climate fight intersect' for YaleEnvironment360

This article, written by Beth Gardiner, is an interview with the marine biologist Dr. Ayana E Johnson. It was sent to me by a fellow angel after I included Dr Johnson in a #followfriday (access here). This interview explores the interconnectedness of racial justice, climate justice and ecological justice. Dr. Johnson emphasises the fact that it will be normal people who will be impacted by rising sea levels and ocean pollution. She also calls for science departments to diversify and include more scientists from minority backgrounds in order to make sure these communities have the power to make a difference.
