11 Sustainability Influencers Inspiring Us To Do A Little Better Every Day
Low Waste, Low Impact Living
When it comes to sustainability, progress is better than perfection, and living intentionally is a lifelong journey. Living more sustainably can seem like a big task, but if you take it one day at a time, you’ll be surprised at how simple and rewarding it is. Thankfully, there are people on and offline that make it easier for us to learn about what steps we can take to be better to our home planet.
It’s especially important to follow intersectional environmentalists who are committed to addressing inequalities in the climate space and advocating for the protection of both people and the planet. Supporting sustainability leaders who are advocates of social justice and environmentalism will help us to expand horizons and become aware of the ways privilege and prejudice lead to environmental racism and discrimination.
