We have environmental scientist and communicator Laura Wells sharing her tips on how you can be an armchair activist while still having a real impact. Writer Alden Wicker discusses the link between fast fashion and climate change and how our consumer behaviours can make a difference. On the lighter side, Olivia Burton who you will recognise as one of our writers from The Green Hub meets two inspiring women who are tackling the plastic pollution issue with their Mer-School.
On the cover, you will find Fabienne Costa, the incredibly talented, self-taught designer behind YCL Jewels.
I chose Fabienne because she, just like you, represents a new wave of conscious women who are creating businesses and lives which reflect the values they want to see more of in the world.
Designers like Fabienne are also helping to dispel the crunchy, granola hippy myth which still plagues ethical and sustainable fashion, despite the fact it is so far from the truth as you will see in these pages.
What is a summer issue without a swimwear guide? I have found beautiful swimsuits in every style to suit every body because I firmly believe that the only thing you need for a beach body is a sustainably made swimsuit.
Finally, I created the magazine to be interactive so if you love a writer and want to follow their work or see a product you like, click the link!
I hope you enjoy the summer issue, I certainly loved creating if for you.
