In light of the recent climate catastrophes happening all over the world, it is clearer than ever that the time for change is now. Of course, change doesn’t happen overnight – but we can all take responsibility by trying our best to live in a sustainable and eco-friendly manner. In the words of Anne-Marie Bonneau: “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly, we need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”
Sometimes it can be difficult to determine where to start. In today’s blog post, we want to highlight 5 Sustainable Content Creators who use their platforms to share tips and resources to get your journey towards a more sustainable lifestyle started!
