Last summer all of my free time was spent engrossed in articles by sustainable lifestyle bloggers. I was obsessed by all of the different options in sustainability and how it affects a variety of different industries and aspects of life. I learned the foundations of sustainability and ethics in fashion and general “eco-ness” from these women. While this list doesn’t represent all of the fantastic women (and men!) that talk about sustainability, I tried to create a list that covered a lot of different approaches to the field. I hope to do all of the incredible work they do justice. Comment below if you have a favorite eco-blogger that wasn’t mentioned on this list!
1. Sustainably Chic @sustainablychic
Natalie Kay- the voice of Sustainably Chic has been an influential voice in sustainable fashion for years. Because of this I always go to her site for lists of eco-fashion options (and discounts!). She writes a lot of reviews on products that I love to add to my running lists of eco brands. She also reviews general eco-home products. If you are looking for a light, straightforward fashion review- this site is for you!
2. Eco Warrior Princess @ecowarriorprincess
Eco Warrior Princess discusses hot topics within sustainable fashion, green living, and ethics. You can come here for the facts, no bias, no bull shit. Jeniffer Nini is an absolute badass that practices what she preaches. She is honest and authentic. The blog also features a variety of different writers from all over the world which offers crucial diversity and cultural experiences to sustainability. If you are looking for a blog that truly makes you think, this one is for you.
3. Leotie Lovely @leotielovely
What I find interesting about Leotie Lovely is the almost philosophical approach to sustainability Holly has. Each post is heartfelt, personal and motivates you to turn inwards. Holly writes about a slew of topics within eco-lifestyle from fashion to travel. I also highly recommend following on insta. Sometimes I find myself scrolling past captions on my feed, but I always make sure to read what is on Holly’s mind that day.
4. Conscious n’ chic @conciousnchic
What an absolute powerhouse! I aspire to have half the drive and poise that Kathleen has. While I am a new follow I have been stalking her channels for a few months feeling so inspired by her content. If you are looking for a one-stop shop in all things sustainable, this site is for you. From fashion to recipes to YouTube videos there are a plethora of resources. The thing that I was so drawn to was the excitement and strength behind this blog. A lot of the time in sustainability you see a lot of linen and non-formfitting close. Kathleen is a friendly reminder that you can look fierce and bold while still being ethical.
5. Compassion Fashion @benita_robledo
Benita keeps ethical fashion exciting on her blog, compassion fashion! Filled with bold colors and words Benita speaks from the heart while still keeping things light and captivating. Benita talks a lot about activism within the sustainability world which I think is a critical dialog in this industry. Her articles are honest and address a lot of problems in sustainability such as price and diversity. In this ethical community, it seems unethical not to fill the space with diversity and inclusion of all ethnicities, religions, genders, and identities! Read this blog if you are looking to stay grounded and optimistic about the future of ethical-fashion.
6. Moral Fibres Blog @moralfibresblog
As one of the first blogs I looked at, this is a great place to start when first looking into sustainability. Wendy has a lot of great all natural/zero waste home tips. She even published a book, Fresh Clean Home, which offers all-natural cleaning product recipes, the book is in my Amazon wishlist right now! If you want to have an all natural home, this blog will help you get there.
7. The Peahen @thepeahen
Kasi is a journalist that always keeps things real! She does a lot of in-depth fashion reviews that are always filled with interesting stats, perspectives, and other articles. Kasi’s specialty is in the realm of secondhand and vintage (she just launched a vintage marketplace!). I love going to this blog and insta for secondhand inspiration and tips, so if you are looking to dip your feet into this realm, this is a great resource!
8. Ethically Kate @ethicallykate
I found Kate through Eco Warrior Princess as she is a contributing writer for the site. I don’t even remember the first post I read by her, but her warmth and authenticity impacted me, and I immediately became a loyal follower. She brings joy and kindness into sustainability, but make no mistakes she isn’t messing around. She reminds us that living consciously is truly attainable, but imperfection is inevitable, which is always a helpful reminder. If you are looking for helpful yet uplifting articles and all those feel-good vibes definitely check Ethically Kate out!
9. My Green Closet @verenaerin
If you haven’t noticed yet, makeup is not my specialty. Eco and all natural makeup overwhelm me at times which is why I always dig through any makeup related posts on My Green Closet. Verena has an emphasis on eco fashion, minimalism, and natural beauty products but my favorite posts are her makeup reviews and tips. She also has a great Youtube channel which is a nice way to switch up the different ways I learn about sustainability
10. Ecocult @ecocult
Last but certainly not least is Alden Wicker’s Ecocult. Not only does she write for her blog but she is also a freelance writer and president of the Ethical Writers & Creatives community. The thing that I love about Ecocult is how approachable Alden makes sustainability; she isn’t afraid to bring this conversation mainstream and challenging anyone’s current views and behavior. Follow her on Instagram to keep up with all of her eco travels. I have been dreaming of visiting Central and South America after seeing all of her pictures!
