Welcome to

I've been writing environmental and ethically-themed stories for 20 years and regularly contribute to a wide range of national newspapers and magazines.

These include The Guardian, The Independent, Daily Telegraph and BBC Wildlife Magazine. I also have my own regular column in the Ethical Consumer Magazine.

During this time I have gained a detailed working knowledge of the current environmental and ethical agenda.

In 2004 I received a special commendation at the British Environmental Media Awards as Environment Journalist Of The Year.

The judges said that, 'We were impressed by the range and quality of Simon's work throughout the year.'
