The Natracare Ball Gown
A beautiful gown made using 100% organic cotton Natracare products and all upcycled materials.
Many people would think that the Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS) only applies to fashion – well surprisingly, GOTS is not just about fashion because Natracare organic cotton tampons and the organic cotton we use in our pads, liners and wipes are also certified organic to this same organic standard. So we thought that Natracare could bring a bit of its own fashion to the catwalk by designing and making this beautiful ball gown made entirely from Natracare products, upcycled Natracare leaflets and flyers and organic cotton nonwoven. You have to agree it is a show stopper! Look out for the dress which may turn up at an eco fashion catwalk near you.

Surfers Against Sewage TV
Surfers Against Sewage was started after a public meeting on the 10th of May 1990, by a group of surfers who were literally sick of surfing in the sewage polluted waters of three local beaches, and equally exasperated by the National Rivers Authorities (now the Environment Agency) and the newly privatised water company’s apathy and disinterest with the problem.
Led by founding member Chris Hines, SAS blitzed the UK’s newswires with hard-hitting actions that saw sandy footprints enter the corridors of political power for the first time. Initial media coverage (a four minute slot on local BBC news) was quickly followed by the first wet-suited and gas-masked ‘hit squad’ demo at South West Water’s exhibition at the Royal Cornwall Show, which involved handing out beach pollution fact sheets to the public.
In the following months, the campaign had spread nationally to other sewage ‘hotspots’ such as Brighton and, with a joint action teaming up with Langland Boardriders concerning the dumping of toxic waste, began to encompass other marine pollution issues apart from sewage.
By the end of the year, just seven months after its inception, SAS had achieved a membership of 2,000 and had gained extensive press, radio, and terrestrial and satellite coverage.
