Top 10 Environment Influencers in 2021

The environment is increasingly at the heart of our concerns. After numerous lockdowns, our focus has turned to issues concerning ecology, climate change, and renewable energy.

Today we understand that to leave a clean planet for future generations, our way of living and consumption has to change. If industries need to change their methods of production, people too need to adapt themselves to new solutions to better respect the environment. Some influencers understood this a while ago, and have grown a following by guiding their communities towards a greener lifestyle for a greener world.

Sustainably_vegan

The humblest

Londoner Immy Lucas founded the blog The Low Impact Movement to incite people to participate in a low impact challenge and more ethical way of life without going out of their way. You’ll also find her book of suggestions and easy tips on how to cut down on waste through cool DIY cosmetics or foods on IGTV and her YouTube channel. She often talks about being “imperfectly sustainable” as she recognizes that conscious living is really about learning and honesty. She accepts that not all her tips will be for everyone. Instead, she advocates for low impact with the ethos that you shouldn’t feel guilty if you don’t manage everything; you should just focus on doing your best by finding small ways to change your behavior, and over time that will have a big impact!

Trash is for tossers

This environmentalist is another eco-influencer all about zero waste. New York activist and entrepreneur Lauren Singer has a wide variety of tips showcasing her own zero-waste lifestyle in the Big Apple.

What’s great about Lauren is that she has tips for every situation and environment. Celebrating waste free anniversaries to staying green in the corporate world… The latter is no surprise, as she is also the CEO of two waste-free companies: the plastic free Package Free and The Simply Co!
