Flash back Friday.
Selfie on-board the VOR70, Volvo Ocean Race 70.
These boats are so fast and cool. I feel so lucky to have got to spend time on one of those. Capturing the action.
It's officially 10 years since I started Amplifyphoto, back then I didn't even thought that this journey would let me experience so much different things or meet so much amazing humans and learn so much.
This is the best parts of my job, making it worth all nights and early mornings.
To all of the ones I met during this last 10 years, thank you so much..

We walked along a beach that was super pristine and seemed to be relatively clean. Strong winds have moved a lot of sand the past days and the surface of the beach looked somehow untouched. But on a closer look you could find all these little plastic pieces, the sand is about to swallow. We left that beach with thousands of those pieces covered in sand and a sick feeling in our stomach. --- Wir sind an einem ganz abgelegenem Strand entlangspaziert, der auf den ersten Blick ziemlich sauber aussah. Starker Wind hatte in den Tagen zuvor viel Sand bewegt und der Sand wirkte ganz unberührt. Wenn man jedoch genauer hinsah, konnte man überall diese kleinen Plastikteile entdecken, die kurz davor waren im Sand zu verschwinden. Wir haben den Strand mit einem Kloß im Hals verlassen und ließen vermutlich tausende Plastikteile zurück, die der Strand gerade verschluckt... #BlueAwareness #Ocean#oceanlove #plastic #pollution #marinelitter #marinepollution #sdg14 #beachcleanup #take3 #take3forthesea #cleanthebeach #cleancoasts #keepourbeachesclean #turnthetideonplastic #keepourcoastclear #keepthecoastclean #isthisyours #bethesolution #solutiontopollution #iamthesolution #portugal #algarve #cordoama #atlantic #atlanticocean.

Celebrating the start of a big sailing competition in Cascais, President Paulo Mirpuri offered a half hull model of the “Turn the Tide on Plastic” boat to Gonçalo Esteves, President of the Cascais Naval Club. 
The “Turn the Tide on Plastic” boat participated in the 2017-18 edition of the @theoceanrace , with the Mirpuri Foundation as Founding Partner, and will go down in history as the first team ever to compete with a mixed and young crew, portuguese flagged boat and with two great portuguese sailors from the Cascais Naval Club onboard, Bernardo Freitas and Frederico Melo. “Turn The Tide on Plastic” sailed for 9 months around the world, with a sustainability message and the determination to protect our oceans. 
The half hull will now hang on the wall of the Cascais Naval Club, inspiring young sailors from the Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Academy.

Some positive news as 2019 is coming to an end! @tescofood @waitroseandpartners @sainsburys and @asda have confirmed that all black plastic will be removed from their packaging by the end of the year! As I mentioned before, black plastic cannot be recycled due to the fact that recycling facilities can’t detect black as a colour and therefore it ends up in landfill. Traditionally black plastic has been used for microwaveable meals and to make the product stand out more. Given the amount of black plastic that is available, it’s extremely important to remove it from all packaging and identify more sustainable alternatives. It is expected that other supermarkets, such as @icelandfoods and @Aldi will follow suit in 2020. #sustainability #sustainablepackaging #sustainablepackagingcoalition #plasticfree #singleuseplastic #singleuseplasticfree #nomoreblackplastic #nomoreplastic #avoidsingleuseplastic #supermarket #blackplastic #packagingideas #sustainabledesign #waronplastic #turnthetideonplastic #plasticpackaging #tesco #asda #sainsburys #waitroseandpartners.

Happy Menstrual Health Day ❣

Have you heard of this before? Well, this started as an awareness day in 2014 and May 28th was chosen as the average length of a #menstrual cycle is 28 days
❣
It is to raise awareness and actively advocate for management if menstrual health in policies and programmes.
❣
I appreciate that I am fortunate. I have access to clean water and a range of #periodproducts
❣
Many women don't - in this country but particularly in developing countries. For example, only 12% of #peoplewhomenstruate in India have adequate period products. Many use alternatives such as ash, rags, dung, straw and wood chip. This can lead to health problems and it is a culture where menstruation is valued as being unclean.
❣
We need to break those barriers down. We must. We can and we will 💪💚
❣
I mean after all, you are either a person who menstruates or you know people who do...
❣
So let's treat our cycles with pride and not shame 💪
❣

Making headlines this week is our hero, Sir David Attenborough, who pointed out, in his appearance on the new So Hot Right Now (@sohotpod ) podcast, that the coronavirus pandemic had "swept climate change off the front pages. And we've got to get it back there".⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Sir Attenborough acknowledged that while staying updated on the pandemic was very important, the focus on the virus has made it seem like the climate issue was in "the distant future". With the UN Climate Change Conference 2020 (COP26 Summit) being postponed due to the pandemic, keeping the conversation about solving climate change front of mind is more important than ever.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ It's easy to feel a bit helpless when it comes to solving the climate crisis and saving the planet. But remember - you are never too small to make a difference, and simple changes, when made as a collective, have a huge impact on this beautiful planet we call home.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Plastic pollution is intrinsically linked to climate change. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Almost all plastic is made from materials (like ethylene and propylene) that are made from fossil fuels. Extracting and transporting these fuels, together with the manufacturing process creates billions of tonnes of greenhouse gases (source: WWF). Not all plastics are bad, some plastic is used to make life-saving surgical equipment, for example. But do we really want to waste precious, finite fossil fuels on a single-use plastic water bottle?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ So, in support of Sir Attenborough and to empower your continued journey to tread a little lighter on the earth, we are turning our attention to 10 simple things you can do today, to reduce and change the future impacts of plastic on the planet.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Don't forget you can still get up to 50% off reusables at thecleancollective.com (link in our bio 👆)⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ _______________________________⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #passonplastic #zerowaste #plasticfree #saynotoplastic #reducereuserecycle #reducewaste #beeswaxwraps #wasteless #zerowastecollective #zerowastelifestyle #savetheenvironment #zerowasteau #ecolifestyle #goingzerowaste #waronwasteau #zerowasteliving #mindfulliving #zerowasteaustralia #saveourseas #saveourplanet #plasticsucks #turnthetideonplastic #sohotrightnow ...

Day 1: Earth 🌍 🦸‍♀️ What grounds you / makes you feel connected to the earth? Please share as I would love to know 💚

The first day of my #captainplanetchallenge (in honour of #worldenvironmentday and #worldoceansday ) is on the relationship with the world we live on 🌍💚 This first picture is one that will stay in my memory for as long as I have a memory. It was from New Zealand and one of the last pictures of anything I took before meeting my husband.

I remember walking around the Wai-O-Tapu geothermal areas and thinking WOW 🤯😍 It was the first time I had seen (and smelt!) such an array of colours. I was mind blown. I watched a geyser 'explode' for the first time, saw a bright green pool, and stared at this spot for as long as I could, soaking it all in. My eyes could not get enough and words i put down won't do it justice.

It made me stop and think about how #diverse #immense and incredible this planet is.

The second picture is somewhere I feel connected to the #world around me too - and it is just a short walk away. I love the fields in Hampshire, the rich greens, vibrant splashes of yellows, whites or reds from the flowers and a warm sunny day. I fee content here.

So there is beauty everywhere, and it is different depending on where in the world you are. Seeing something as incredible as the geyser and pools is an experience with mother earth I won't forget 🌍💚 But neither is the attempted jog in the local fields 😉 👉 What grounds you or makes you feel connected to #motherearth

⭐ACTION⭐ To celebrate Menstrual Health Day I would like to ask for your help by filling out a campaign questionnaire! (Link in bio). Although the #EndPeriodPlastic campaign focuses on plastic, I also makes suggestions on how manufacturers and supermarkets can bring about wider change and raises the concerns of supporters.

The 6 questions I am asking will provide an invaluable insight into what changes you want to be made. I will then put this research together and take it back to manufacturers, supermarkets, local authorities and governments who can then use it to make informed decisions!

You can find the questionnaire by following the link in my bio! Please share on social media and with your friends, the more people that answer the better the research! Thank you 💙
