Let’s face facts: our seas are in crisis. Of the 330 million metric tonnes of plastic consumed worldwide annually, over 12.7 MILLION tonnes of plastic – that’s everything from bottles and packaging to glitter – is dumped in our oceans. One truckload a minute, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. As a consequence, there are an estimated 1.8 trillion bits of plastic in the...

“Everything happens for a reason”
Lauren St. John

“What animal would do this?"he said harshly. "No, little one, animals might scratch you, or bite you, or even rip you apart in hunger or fear, but only a man can crush you inside, in your heart, for no other reason than the colour of tour skin.”
Lauren St John

“Good choice,' Laura Said. 'Our neighbour, Mrs Crabtree, came round this morning and she put it best. Her theory is that fame is like a bubble. It looks gorgeous on the outside, as if it's been painted with pretty colours, but when you pop it there's nothing there. She said that life, love and friendship are what matters, and that what you do is more important than what you show.”
Lauren St. John, Rendezvous in Russia
