Blogs That Help Us Live More Thoughtfully
We're constantly searching for bloggers and influencers that are living out the ideals of a global citizen. We naturally follow dozens of blogs on a range of topics, but we've been set on finding the ones that are really living out sustainability and sharing practical insights on how to change the world around us through simple daily decisions. We've asked our friends on Instagram, scoured our feeds and followed plenty of bunny trails to find these ten sustainable living blogs.
These blogs include topics like ethical fashion, sustainable living, advice for activists, organic and healthy food tips, recipes and more!
1. Sustainably Chic
Natalie personally reviews eco-friendly and ethical companies from all over the world, sharing her favorites and often offering reader discounts on her blog, Sustainably Chic. The blog is beautifully designed and the products Natalie reviews are both sustainable and aesthetically on point. We love checking back with her site and Instagram to learn about new sustainable brands. Plus, she's a first time mother-to-be, so we're excited to learn how she lives sustainably with baby!
2. Going Zero Waste
After a health scare prompted her to make the switch to whole, from-scratch foods, all-natural deodorant, homemade cleaning products, and more, Kathryn Kellogg started Going Zero Waste to share all that she was learning. Filled with actionable tips, and informative pieces on things like the circular economy and finding your very own zero waste community, this blog has all the tools you'll need to start living more sustainably.
3. Selva Beat
Selva Beat is “an environmental magazine with an edge,” and we certainly haven’t seen anything quite like it. They’re making environmentalism part of mainstream youth culture in order to get their readers active and excited about making change. They’re primarily a print publication, but keep an eye out on their website for weekly content surrounding ethical fashion, sustainable food, and for quirky, colorful inspiration.
4. Eco Warrior Princess
Jennifer Nini has been blogging on ethical fashion since 2010 and is deeply connected in the sustainability community. Her site Eco Warrior Princess covers a range of topics from closet organization to thrifting tips, organic food, and political activism. The writing is spot on and Jennifer lives what she writes. Don’t expect to stop by her site and not be a least a little bit provoked to action. Plus, catch the Eco Warrior Princess podcast for more inspiration!
EcoCult has an honest writing style that puts us right at home. Their content covers a range of sustainability topics from fair trade lingerie to sustainable apartment renovations. We love their tips for sustainable and minimal travel, and they're a great source for finding upcoming sustainability-focused events in New York. Alden Wicker is the founder of the blog and brings a unique perspective on sustainability in NYC.
6. Moral Fibres
Moral Fibres is a UK based blog that breaks green living into simple steps. Wendy is the founder of the site and has broken her content into 5 categories including style, food and travel. Each category gives actionable advice on how to make greener choices. It’s a solid lunch hour read.
7. Zero Waste Home
Zero Waste Home, the blog that launched the bestselling book, is written by Bea Johnson, a woman who adopted a zero waste lifestyle back in 2008. Her goal is to shatter the misconceptions people have about the zero waste lifestyle and prove that you can live a stylish, healthy, and financially healthy lifestyle while not creating any waste. Find product recommendations, join her monthly challenges, and learn more about living an “unpackaged” lifestyle on this inspiring blog.
8. Melanin & Sustainable Style
Melanin & Sustainable Style (or MelaninASS) is a platform dedicated to sustainable development, social innovation and holistic living. Founded by Dominique Drakeford, this blog focuses on the intersection between the ethical and sustainable world and the experience of communities of color, helping build up a more inclusive range of voices and viewpoints within the space. In addition to sharing ethical and sustainable brands, expect to find thoughtful explorations of mental health, brands they love owned by people of color, and self care tips and empowerment for women of color.

10. Mindful Momma
We love that Mindful Momma’s community is all about helping each other out on the journey towards sustainability—instead of expecting perfection.
