“We make mindfulness cards and gifts inspired by the sea. Nature is our inspiration – our cards use the sea as a source of greater calm, confidence and clarity, boosting the wellbeing and self-compassion of those who use them. So naturally, we want to protect our environment in every way that we can.

“As a sea swimmer in Penzance, I find myself walking or swimming through single-use plastics most days, and although we regularly beach clean as a family, it’s an uphill struggle.  I know we need to stop the problem at its source.

“In recent years, my family and I have cut down on single use plastics in my home life, and it was really important for me to do the same in this new business. I have two young children who are passionate advocates for the natural world, and I want to ensure that our planet continues to support them and others as they grow up.”
