    We're loving this Sea Unicorn Yaroomba Floral swimming costume. It has a pretty floral back which not only looks great, it makes it easier to take the swimming costume on and off. The Sea Unicorn Yaroomba is made from our super soft, quick drying and chlorine resistant Elastomax™ fabric. The X Ruffleback and Scoopback swimsuits are also available in the Sea Unicorn print.

    The Zoggs Swim Diaries series focuses on people who are taking on a personal challenge whether it be learning to swim, working towards a specific goal or doing something extraordinary. Many of you have a story to tell and that's what we love about the Zoggs Swim Diaries.

    This guest post is by Donna Wishart from What The Redhead Said who learnt to swim last year. Donna is a top UK family lifestyle blogger who lives in Surrey with her husband Dave and their two children. Over to Donna...

    I have one vivid childhood memory when it comes to swimming and that is going to the local swimming pool with my class at school. We were around seven or eight and it was the start of our swimming lessons – which only lasted for a term. I had never swam before but, as I was painfully shy, especially around people I didn’t know, somehow I ended up in the deep end of the pool with the more proficient swimming, holding on to the edge for dear life. I thought I was going to drown.

    After that my experience of swimming was brief. I went swimming with my parents on annual camping trips. We couldn’t afford to go swimming in between those summer holiday trips and we definitely couldn’t afford formal lessons. So throughout my childhood I would splash away in the shallow end of the pool, arm bands on, thinkin

  8. Just say no to plastic!
    Just say no to plastic!

    Just say no to plastic!

    The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) is the UK’s leading charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. For over thirty years MCS has worked to ensure our seas are healthy, pollution free and protected. The charity has been the voice for all the fascinating creatures that live beneath the waves, for our breath-taking coastlines, for those who make a sustainable living from the sea and for anyone who loves our beautiful beaches. In this post, MCS shares why everyone should say no to single use plastic.

    "Just recently, 15,000 volunteers picked up 305,958 bits of litter from UK beaches during our annual Great British Beach Clean. That’s a whole lot of litter and most of it was tiny pieces of plastic that had once been bigger – bottles, bags, cartons, containers – items that have for decades been swirling around in the currents, breaking down into smaller and smaller pieces but never entirely going away.

    A lot of people are more aware of the plastic crisis we’re in. It’s not surprising that the Word of the Year (Collins Dictionary says) for 2018 is “single-use”, we’ve heard it so many times in the news and on our screens. It comes from the shocking fact that much of the plastic things we use and turn to rubbish are used just once.

    Single-use plastic – our friend for so long, is now the enemy. More and more of us are using re-usable water bottles and coffee cups, many of us are refusing straws or not being offered them at the bar at all, we’re converts to bags for life, we can no longer buy gels and potions with microbeads in and cotton bud sticks with plastic stems are becoming as rare as hens' teeth.

    There’s so much more we can do! Buy things to last. Ditch fast fashion. Microfibres – tiny synthetic threads shed from cheap clothing – are ending up in our seas. Buy clothes made from natural fibres. Go retro, go second-hand but don’t go disposable. Stopping the plastic tide isn’t all about bottles and bags – a bit of thinking outside the box can go a long way to turn the plastic tide.

    Another word that means much the same thing as “single-use” is “disposable”, found on the labels of goods like cleaning wipes, nappies, cameras, razors, food pouches, cutlery, party dresses, raincoats, tents… the list goes on, and seems to be growing.

    We really need to see much less new plastic being made and sold, especially for items that are used for a short time, or hardly used at all – coffee can be stirred with a steel teaspoon, and lemonade sipped without a straw. Disposable just isn't disposable!"
