When Fariba Stoddart (@berriestagram) prepares her bag for a hike in the Scottish Highlands, she packs the essentials: a flask of tea, some shortbread, her camera, a statement dress for photos, and often, a friend. “I take someone with me so they can experience what I experience,” she says. “I go on walks and find out more about myself and Scotland.” Preserving her country’s natural beauty is one of Fariba’s passions. For this year’s Worldwide InstaMeet on Earth Day weekend, she, along with the fellow organizers of Instagrammers Edinburgh (@igersedinburgh), planned a beach cleanup. Armed with litter picks and disposal bags, the group will sweep one of her favorite places to walk, Edinburgh’s Cramond Beach. “It’s a unique and historically important part of Edinburgh. It’s beautiful,” Fariba says. “It’s about giving something back to the city and making sure we keep it clean and leave it as it is for others.” #LifeOnEarthWWIM13
