Immy talks about low-impact living on her channel, Sustainably Vegan. I love her 100 Sustainable series, each video has 100 tips and swaps for reducing your impact, AND she’s made tutorials on making your own plant-based milks, mayonnaise, and nut butters!
Polly on Polly Barks has a really entertaining and straightforward style of writing. She takes a fresh approach to write about living zero waste and sustainability. She focuses on systematic issues creating the current climate crisis. Like this post where she talks about the big companies controlling most of the products we buy.

Heal Your Living
The YouTube channel Heal Your Living covers mindfulness, sustainability, minimalism, and wellness. Her approach to minimalism is a lot more extreme than most of the other people I’ve mentioned. But even if you’re not an extreme minimalist, it’s worth watching a few of her videos. She also has an Etsy shop for her self-care e-books.

Eco & Beyond‘s vision is to create a directory and guide for eco-friendly living. They cover topics such as creating less food waste and using less packaging, plastic, meat, and dairy. They talk about how the importance of buying more sustainable, fair trade, local, and seasonal products and produce. They also have a section where they define and explain how to do more social good.
Abby, a college student, shares stories about her sustainability adventure on her blog MsAceAmazing. In her post Minimalism Vs Eco-Minimalism, she describes different situations where minimalism and eco-minimalism disagree.
On her blog, she talks about minimalism, sustainability, and the problem with food waste. She also covers topics like environmental activism, digital minimalism, and mindfulness.

When you subscribe to her blog, you get a short e-book introducing zero waste living. If you enjoy that (which I did!) she also has an e-book called 101 Ways to Go Zero Waste.

Trash is for Tossers is about Lauren’s zero waste journey. Lauren jas a college degree in environmental science, and was inspired by zero waster Bea Johnson. Lauren also has a YouTube channel that has lots of content but doesn’t seem to be active.
Lauren is also the founder of Package Free Shop. This is a really cool online shop for people trying to live zero waste. They also use 100% recyclable and compostable shipping materials. I thought it was really cool that each product also has end of life instructions.
