Reading sustainability-focused blogs is a great way to stay up to date with sustainability news, learn from others’ experience and receive insightful tips. Today, there are thankfully several blogs (apart from ours, The Green Dandelion) dedicated to educating their audience on an eco-friendly lifestyle. Below are my top recommendations; each of them brings their own perspective and is worth checking out!
TreeHugger is a prolific blog “dedicated to driving sustainability mainstream” with excellent writers from all over the globe. Their topics range from sustainable living, transportation to business. I’ve been following this blog for a while and often drew inspiration from it for my Student’s Corner articles or social media posts.
Going Zero Waste: You’ve guess it right: it’s a blog on living a zero-waste lifestyle! Through their narrative articles, Justin and Kathryn share their experiences and provide practical tips on maintaining a zero-waste lifestyle. Kathryn is also the author of 101 Ways to Go Zero Waste, a highly recommended book for starters.
Eco Warrior Princess was founded in 2010 by Jennifer Nini a writer, activist and certified organic farm owner. Today, it offers tons of practical resources on sustainable living. It also has thought-provoking articles, like this recent one on intolerance within the eco-community.
Old World New is a blog founded by Addie Fisher, a sustainability enthusiast who believes that “everything can be done sustainably”. Addie mainly encourages her audience to repurpose and reuse their old items, two practices that benefit the environment much more than recycling.
Zero Waste collective is another community and blog on a waste-free lifestyle. Founded by Tara McKenna, the platform has a clean, minimal design and provides practical tips on reducing and eliminating waste.
