Caroline Burrows, A Year of Trying to be Environmentally Friendly: Its Not Easy Being Green

(Verses 1-10, 11-20 and 21-30), videos, 2020

Caroline spent a year writing a verse a day called 'A Year of Trying to be Environmentally Friendly: It's Not Easy Being Green'. The verses, written between Sept 2019-Sept 2020, chart the successes and failures as she attempts to change her own habits within a consumerist society which doesn't enable or encourage this. During the Covid-19 lockdown, she turned this into a collaborative social-engagement video project with guest readers recording alternate verses in groups of ten. Caroline is an emerging poet, filmmaker and writer who specialises in themes associated with being environmentally friendly and mental health.
