Blogging Babes: 10+ Eco Friendly Bloggers

Looking for style advice? Eco living tips? These 10+ eco friendly bloggers can help!

By Lora O’Brien & Alexandria Beyer

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 10 eco friendly bloggers we think you’ll love.

10+ Eco Friendly Bloggers You Need to Know

2.  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.

5. 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.

Based in: USA

Best for: Anyone concerned about chemicals in skincare and makeup

11. Thoughtful Flamingo

Carley’s blog, Thoughtful Flamingo, is a fun guide to the ethical fashion world. She believes you don’t have to sacrifice style (or sequins) to be sustainable and overconsumption is (so) last season.
In 2017 Carley moved from Los Angeles to San Francisco to much less space and a job that kept her traveling. Around this time, she started reading about the true cost of fast fashion for both the environment and people in the supply chain. She needed a clothing change but didn’t want to lose her love for fun fashion. So she asked kickass women how they built conscious wardrobes that didn’t sacrifice their diverse, unique styles.

Thoughtful Flamingo is a place where she shares their stories, tests out ethical clothing practices, and provides guides to the best places to buy sustainable (and fun!) clothes around the globe.

Based in: USA

Best for: Those who want to keep their patterns and colors and are also looking for city shopping guides.

  3. 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
