Inspiring the next generation

Our Only World is set up to help restore the ocean’s health for future generations, so what better place to start than by inspiring children.

Our charity Our Only World is named after the brilliant song by composer and producer David Smart.

Tina and David first discussed the possible idea of launching the charity via an inspirational song, especially commissioned for children, to raise awareness of the plastic pollution present in all our oceans. They hoped it could be released as a single.

Unfortunately, the events of the last two years put that single release on the back burner. Nevertheless, a number of schools in North Cornwall took up the challenge of learning the song and performing it at various events with great success.

As the word spread the project got picked by a school in Guernsey, and thanks to Chantal Harrison and our generous sponsors GRG and Cazenove Capital as well as the Red Carnation Group we now have a professionally recorded song and a music video that we are excited to release early 2023!

We hope it will have a major impact and inspire us all to look after our precious oceans and minimize the impact plastic pollution has on our marine life. Watch this space!

Our new book: Yikesy meets Gaia

We have a new book out that is written and illustrated by children, for children. Beth Boon has worked with a local school to come up with the adventure tale of Yikesy meets Gaia. It’s a story of an alien who follows a trail of plastic space junk to earth where she finds more plastic than she’s ever seen. Join Yikesy and friends on their journey to help rid the beaches of plastic and save Earth!

Buy a copy of Yikesy Meets Gaia today and the profits go towards marine conservation.
