INTERVIEWER: What do you do in your everyday life to try and benefit the planet?
LILY: I’m by no means perfect!! But where possible simple things… Using a refillable bottle for tea/drinks when I can, shopping in local co-ops/buying organic as much as possible. I have a predominantly vegan diet and when I eat dairy I try and ensure it is organic/free-range. I believe in the power of purchasing choices and so try and see where things I buy come from.
INTERVIEWER: Do you try and use organic/natural/eco-beauty products?
LILY: Yes I have been using Dr. Haushka creams recently (eye cream and rose face cream) and Eve Lom cleanser. Also, The Body Shop products for skincare and tea tree as they are all community fair trade. I use natural ingredients like coconut oil on my skin where possible. I just bought Rose Elixir body cream from Neal’s Yard which is lovely!
INTERVIEWER: Are you passionate about the effects of farming and its impact on the environment
LILY: Yes though I don’t know enough. I would love to learn more about biodiversity and permaculture. I have been thinking about the need for us to do more organic and localized farming methods for many reasons: not just for my personal health, but the health of the planet. I have a dream one day of being able to grow a lot of the food I consume.
INTERVIEWER: You’re a vegan – why did you decide to become one and what have been the benefits to your health? And what has been the worst thing about making the change?
LILY: I am an aspiring vegan… which means I have been trying to be but am not always as it isn’t always easy, and so I try and keep a balanced attitude when I can’t be. In my heart of hearts I know I want to be a vegan though and am very happy when I manage to be.
INTERVIEWER: What is the easiest thing a GLAMOUR reader can do to try and help the environment?/be more eco-friendly/socially aware?
LILY: Paul McCartney would say become a vegetarian! And there is an intelligence behind that comment as meat farming contributes a significant amount of carbon dioxide (between 14 and 22 per cent) to the atmosphere (beyond the ethical considerations).
INTERVIEWER: Do you think young people are more, or less engaged in trying to get behind social causes? How can we try to encourage people?
LILY: I don’t know… NCS did a recent survey which suggested that they are more engaged and I would like to believe that is the case. Really it is the world young people are inheriting, and will be passing onto their own children, so I would hope so.

Thinking of the 200+ people arrested for #extinctionrebellion #XR peaceful civil disobedience this week… I spoke with the XR activist & environmental lawyer Farhana Yamin a few weeks ago – a mother of four, she has authored several IPCC reports & devoted her life to trying to stop environmental collapse via legal means. Now she feels the situation is so desperate she needs to break laws (peacefully) and is willing to go to jail, if that is what it takes. I often have sleepless nights worrying about our climate crisis, and the world we are creating for vulnerable communities, ourselves and the generations ahead of us. XR are demanding the UK commit to being carbon neutral by 2025 – the UK government are currently considering a commitment of carbon neutrality by 2050. If XR encourage them to make that commitment – even to make it earlier than 2050 – that would be a triumph. No one says this transition is going to be easy, but the other option will be so much harder. I’m not in the UK so not involved in person. I also think there are many ways protest can manifest and so even if you are not one for marches or law breaking there are other gentler ways to be involved if you agree with the goals – beginning most essentially with the personal every day choices we make in how we live. Someone just tagged me in this photo, wearing an old Greenpeace T-shirt, a group I respect who somewhat pioneered environmental civil disobedience. Link in bio for more info.
