Who would think that when you are trying to get rid off your dandruff you could be eliminating the orangutans and tigers too? When I look at these images of forest destruction and biodiversity I’m once again reminded that even your shampoo could harbor a dirty secret.

I can’t believe it’s already three years since the Fukushima disaster struck. Thousands of people were forced to flee their homes and had to rebuild their lives elsewhere, because of the high levels of radiaition. Japanese photographer Noriko Hayashi documents the struggle of some of the victims, who feel the government has abandoned them.

When I look at these shockingly colourful pictures of clothes manufacturing in China, it is a stark reminder that you don’t always know the full story behind the production of your kid's garments.

Captain Pete Willcox is home, and the rest of the non-Russians in the Arctic 30 are either home as well or on their way. There have been some amazing scenes on their arrival home - here are a few of my favourite photos from the last two days.

I was working on the Arctic Sunrise a week before she set sail to confront the giant Prirazlomnaya oil rig, where Gazprom intends to become the first company to pump oil from icy Arctic waters.

We’ve had a fantastic, hot summer this year, cooling down with a drink of water whenever needed.

So when I look at Bo Qiu’s photo feature of water shortages in Inner Mongolia it is a strong reminder that easy access to clean water is not a given for everyone.

Greenpeace activists protest outside the Russian Embassy in London

The last few days have been very emotional for me. I work on the picture desk and dramatic images have been coming in showing the Russian coast guards reacting with force to our peaceful action at Gazprom’s oil platform. Now, the Arctic 30 have been remanded in custody for up to two months.

I am fascinated by chimpanzees, these most human-like mammals that nurse their babies until they are three years old, use simple tools like twigs to poke into ant nests and noisily communicate with the rest of their troop.

Normally you associate Thailand’s beaches and holiday resorts with emerald water and white sands, but on Saturday morning 50,000 litres of crude oil spilled from a leak in a pipeline into the Gulf of Thailand, off Rayong province.
