  • “When did you last receive a handwritten letter? How did the letter make you feel? When did you last receive an email? How did that make you feel? 
I can’t speak for you, but I know when I hear that familiar ‘ding’ telling me I have a new email, what I don’t feel is a rush of joy or a tingling of anticipation. I can’t turn it over in my hands, marvelling at the spidery handwriting. When I receive an email, my first thought is not gratitude that someone has thought of me and taken time out of their day to write to me – smudged ink, spelling mistakes and all. A letter, on the other hand, carries all of that and more in one paper envelope – and that’s what I hope to share every time I write to someone.”

  • PEPTALKS // We’re super excited for Tim Silverwood to be joining us at our PepTalks event in June! Tim is a passionate advocate for protecting our oceans and environment from human impacts. As a surfer, Tim became alarmed at the increasing risks plastic pollution posed to our oceans and wildlife, co-founding the not-for-profit organisation @take3forthesea in 2009.

In 2011, Tim sailed 5000km across the North Pacific Ocean to study the infamous Great Pacific Garbage Patch, sharing his experiences through a TEDx talk on his return. He was awarded the 2014 Green Globe ‘Sustainability Champion’, featured in the hugely popular ABC series ‘War on Waste’ and also starred as an ‘Ocean Guardian’ in the 2017 feature documentary @bluethefilm2017 🌊 Tickets are close to selling out so don’t miss out on hearing the inspiring @timsilverwood, along with Clare Press @mrspress and Dr Rebecca Ray @happihabits 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 #pmpeptalks #take3forthesea
