“I have always had an interest in the climate but when I became a mum, the urgency of the impending climate crisis became a much higher priority on my radar. The more research I did on climate, the more responsibility I felt. Not just as a human and mother but also as a doctor too. When considering the Hippocratic oath-to do good and to do no harm-I felt that not only applied to the patients sitting in front of me but also to future generations too.”

Bláthnaid subsequently started a blog on Facebook called ‘365 Ways to Save the Earth’ which gives simple hints and tips on how to make small changes in our every day lives and homes to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. She has been eco-blogging for over a year now and received congratulations from Sir David Attenborough for her blog commitment.
