A view undisturbed by humans from Samaria Gorge, Crete

Welcome to Ecoetry

In 2016, the UK produced an unimaginable 221 million tonnes of waste, most of which was totally avoidable. But people are finally waking up to the wasteful systems our society was built on. From raw resource harvesting through to post-consumption, each stage of each process leaves something behind that could have been used elsewhere.

Although as individuals can’t fix everything, you’d be surprised how much of a difference we can make. By changing our own habits, the habits of our local communities and even, in some cases, corporate entities, the air gets a little bit cleaner and the grass just that bit greener.

Ecoetry is home to my explorations in ecopoetry (see what I did there?), ‘eco-friendly’ features and reviews from my zero-waste-without-drastic-impediment-on-the-everyday journey, and my personal writing updates. Take a look at the about page to find out more.

Engulf

"Only the smaller children 
have time for the colour of the pebbles
and the detail in quiet pools 
the tide abandoned. The rest of us 

gorge our senses on its absolutes, 
the distances that make us 
less accountable."
