Blogging Babes: 10 Eco Friendly Bloggers You Need to Know


By Lora O’Brien

It’s fair to say that  blogs are as popular today as magazines have been for years–instead of popping into the local newsagents for a weekly fix of glossy gossip,  we’re now opening up our phone, laptop and tablet browsers and reading our favourite sites.

For eco-lifestyle lovers, this is a great thing: sustainability hasn’t yet hit the mainstream, so blogs are still our very best source of information on the topics that interest us most. The issue is, they can be a little bit difficult to find, unless you know exactly what you’re looking for. But never fear: whether it’s organic beauty, zero-waste living or sustainable fashion, we’ve found 15 eco friendly bloggers we think you’ll love.

1. Jennifer Nini

Super stylish and super cool this is a woman who walks the walk and talks the talk! Nini is a bee-keeper, organic farmer, off-grid pioneer, eco-consultant and the voice behind the green lifestyle blog, Eco Warrior Princess. Proving you can still love fashion without compromising your beliefs, Jennifer is a shining example of a blogger who is fully dedicated to promoting not only green fashion, but living a full-on green lifestyle, beautifully.

2. Brooke Lacey

Brooke is  the exceptionally stylish blogger behind eco-fashion blog the Friendly Fashionista, and one of the sweetest girls we’ve interviewed.

3. Brooke Hahn

A happy, cheerful soul, Brooke Hahn is the founder of The Beautiful Think, an Australian online platform for holistic living. The idea behind TBT started when Brooke visualized about creating a place for people to be able to visit and find stylish, sustainable fashion labels under one roof, making eco-friendly fashion as easily accessible as fast-fashion is. Since its inception, the blog has also moved into health, wellness and mindful living.

4. Yarina Valverde 

Yarina uses her blog, Fashionhedge, in a fairly conventional way, taking plenty of pics of herself wearing eco-friendly outfits. But it is also a gateway to debate about what “ethical fashion” is, exactly, and she particularly focuses on the business of fashion and fashion sourcing. You think those jeans are good just because they weren’t mass produced? Straight-talking Yarina will make you think again.

8. Yatu Hunt

Communications consultant and eco-style writer Yatu fuses her interests in environmental issues with her love of fashion in her blog, Thinking Fashion. Yatu describes herself as both a “political nerd” and an “eco-fasionista” but she also has interests outside these two realms, such as natural beauty, health and wellbeing, which she also covers in her blog, Clean Cut Fashion.

9. Bea Johnson

The Zero Waste Home Queen once boasted that her family of four created no more than a Mason jar‘s worth of rubbish in a whole year! This requires careful planning, from buying food in your own containers, cooking all meals from scratch, recycling, composting and of course, reducing your consumption to only that which is truly necessary. She’s a true inspiration for us all, and her blog became so popular, it’s now a book.

10. The Glamorganic Goddess

This is a healthy beauty and lifestyle blog by Danielle Messina – a young breast cancer survivor whose story motivated her to go green with her skincare and makeup.

In 2009, when she was only 31, Danielle was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer. This came totally out of the blue: there was no history of the disease in her family, and was a huge shock, as this young woman was a healthy former pro figure skater. After two surgeries and radiation, (she opted out of chemo and Tamoxifen after learning that the side effects included other forms of cancer) Danielle is thankfully well again, and has since chosen a more natural lifestyle.

As a figure skater, she had been wearing makeup since she started training at the age of 4, and she clued in that maybe chemicals in cosmetics contributed to her cancer. Determined to turn her pain into purpose, Danielle has publicly documented her journey on The Glamorganic Goddess and is on a mission to find the very best clean beauty products.

    I’m vegan and healthy girl, really care about ecology, but I also love beauty and to be fabulous. Not always easy with ethical brands. I’m new on the blogger world, I’ve decided to come back to a very old project and start again a new one, more engaged and continual. Will do my best with researches, interviews and reviews to be able to help this cause and help to push things going to the ethical directions. I truly believe that is possible to be a princess with an eco friendly wardrobe and lifestyle, without renounces.
    I visited these blog you reviewed and found great inspirations from these girls. They are amazing!
    I’m happy to found out your magazine and follow your work, can’t wait to discover the other posts on the website. Best wishes. Irene
