Mesmerising Nature Captured at The National History Museum.

As a BecoFriend, I’m sure you’re all fairly big animal lovers, and like everyone in the office here absolutely loved the Frozen Planet series that has kept us all in front of the TV when we should probably be out and about! Well don’t worry that it’s nearly all over as there’s more of the same type of stuff to be seen at the National History Museum.  From 21st October 2011 until 11th March 2012, the museum is holding the 2011 Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. We’ve all been to see it and it truly is amazing! It provides a spotlight on the rarely seen wonders of the natural world, and is definitely a must see…

This year’s exhibition wanted to highlight the important impact of humans on wildlife.  This year’s competition winner is Daniel Beltrá who wanted to challenge people to reconsider their relationship with nature.  His photo Still Life in Oil (above) is a shot taken during the infamous BP and Gulf oil spillages which caused mind boggling amounts of damage to bird and animal life.

 

We think this photo really helps to build awareness on the environmental impacts that companies cause in order to acquire raw materials. We are proud to say that we don’t have to dig to the bottoms of the earth to make BecoThings which are all made from sustainable sourced plant fibres, such as rice husks (the waste product of rice farming) and bamboo. We don’t want to blow our own trumpets but we, like many people are trying to do our bit for the environment and hopefully more companies will start to do the same… So enough of our preaching; make sure you get down to the exhibition as soon as possible, above all it’s a great thing to take the family to!
