Green living isn’t easy. It involves a lot of learning, making mistakes and it can be easy to lose motivation. Fortunately, there are now a lot of sustainability blogs as well as eco influencers and Instagrammers who chart their journey towards living in a more conscious way
In this blog post, we highlight some of the best eco-friendly and zero waste bloggers and influencers. They not only create great content on their blogs and Instagrams, but do so in an honest and transparent way.
If you’re looking for an insight into the ethical fashion world then Curiously Conscious is the blog for you. The content is created by Londoner, Besma, who started the site in 2014 when she discovered the benefits of slow living whilst living in Paris at the time.

Alongside fashion, Curiously Conscious is also a great resource for green beauty, as well as general lifestyle tips for living a more zero waste lifestyle.

Another leading light and one of the UK’s top sustainability influencers is Immy Lucas. Immy has been posting inspiring content around low waste and vegan living on her Instagram and YouTube for many years now. She has gained a large following over this time due to her open and honest take on living consciously.
Immy believes that transparency and being ‘real’ is important with social media. Her approach has always been to promote the ethos that all you can do is try your best within your means. You shouldn’t feel guilty or bad for not being able to do everything. This led to Immy recently founding The Low Impact Movement . It’s aimed at educating people on how we can reduce waste alongside other ways we can help our planet.

An aspect of the blog we particularly like is the food and drink section. A fantastic resource of great tips on how to reduce food waste, which are easy to implement whilst being effective. For example, there’s lots of advice on how to make fresh food last longer, saving money and reducing packaging waste at the same time.
The Ethical Unicorn blog is another brilliant place online to find tips on how to live in a more planet-friendly and ethical way. It is run by blogger aficionado Francesca Willow.
