Influencers and Brands Who Inspire Us to Love the Earth and Ourselves

environmentally sustainable living

Over the last decade, our planet has taken some harsh hits from climate change and pollution. It is now more important than ever that we are mindful of how we treat not only the earth, but ourselves too. When we take the conscious approach to loving ourselves by using sustainable and ethical products, we are helping preserve the planet. Here is a list of our influencers and brands who are working to promote environmentally sustainable living, a healthy and ethical lifestyle. Change starts with us!

1.@wearilive

Jenny has been active on YouTube since 2015 and has been a positive influence ever since. While spending her college years in NYC, she has given subscribers a look into her (imperfect) vegan and ethical lifestyle. She has given us guides on how to quit fast fashion, how to start living sustainably, and has kept it real with her day in the life videos. Her dedication to leaving the earth better than she found it is so inspiring.

“There’s only one reason why you’re not experiencing bliss at this present moment, and it’s because you’re thinking or focusing on what you don’t have” – Anthony De Mello It’s time for my annual holiday hiatus and will be logging off social media to rest. During times of digital detoxification, I am reminded of who I am without social media, and have more time and bandwidth to brainstorm and dream up for 2019 + beyond. In this culture of share, share, share, it’s seldom that creators take breaks. Other creators, like singers and actors, take long breaks between albums and touring to ground down and sharpen their tools. They do this so ultimately they can create more art. Social media culture makes us feel like we “can’t” do that, so we need to be proactive and remember it’s okay to take breaks, to log off, to hibernate, to rest, to say no, to not share, to be quiet, to not know what’s going on all the time. I am wishing all of you the most beautiful, safe, and joyful holiday season, however you spend it. I’ll be back soon, feeling refreshed, chilled, and ready to rock. 🧡💛💭 #leefromamerica

9. @shethinx

Over the recent years, we have seen a rise in menstrual product brands that simply want to make periods easier. For those of you who prefer to not use a penetrative product such as tampons or menstrual cups, Thinx has created the ultimate pair of period panties. A pair of Thinx panties is made out of organic cotton, and can hold up to 4 tampons worth of blood. Once the day is done, all you need to do is put them in the washer and they’re good to go for your next cycle. For a more sustainable period, you may find it beneficial to invest in a pair or two.
