I’m very excited to announce that I’m the editor for the new BritMums Environment Round-up. This means I will be writing a monthly post for the BritMums site to showcase posts on environmental topics from across the BritMums network. If you haven’t heard of BritMums before they are the UK’s largest collective of lifestyle bloggers and digital influencers and organise the UK’s biggest annual blogger and social media conference which I attended in 2014 and 2015.
I know the environment is an area of interest for many bloggers ranging from local to global and conservation to money saving perspectives. However, these posts haven’t had anyone showcasing them across BritMums for a few years so you may not have noticed the level the passion that exists. I first discovered it after bumping into Karen Cannard and Gina Caro at BritMums Live 2014 soon after we’d all signed up to be Zero Waste Week 2014 Ambassadors.
I’m one of those people with passion about the environment. I studied environmental science as part of my degree and worked as an environmental consultant for fourteen years. I love being able to improve where we live for future generations, as well as the problem-solving aspect; the environment is a complex web of issues so making improvements in one area could have an unplanned impact in another area.
Environment Round-up details
The round-up will be published on the 1st Sunday of every month, so I need suggestions for posts to include by 25th of each month. To send suggestions you can use my contact form, email me at kate. darktea @gmail.com or tweet me at @katedavis.
My aim is to write posts covering different environmental themes so will collect all the suggestions in a spreadsheet so if I don’t use them that month I can use them in a later month, however I suspect my first few maybe a mix of topics until more people are aware of the round-up and I receive more post suggestions.
Also please ask if you have questions about the environment as I would love to answer them. It will be a great opportunity for me to keep learning as I research the answers because there is always something more to learn as new discoveries continue to be made.
