It seems as though more and more people are joining the mission to make the world a better place, which is just fantastic. Maybe you want to find new charities to donate to or volunteer for, or you might be trying your hand at being vegan, or maybe you just want to reduce your carbon footprint and become more eco-friendly on a daily basis.
Whatever it is, you're doing a wonderful thing and we need to encourage more people to follow in your footsteps.
If you need a helping hand with living a more ethically conscious life, or just want to find out about some of the amazing things other people are doing to help our planet, these are the blogs you should be reading.
Blog aside, the Crop Club is a wonderful company that is helping communities to grow their own food and make healthy lifestyle choices. This push to educate people about sustainability and environmentally friendly practices is exactly what becoming an eco-friendly nation is all about.
Their relatively new blog does just this, and discusses problems within modern food production and how various unethical practices can impact not only biodiversity, but our health too.
The Ethical Box is another blog that is very new, but certainly is one to keep an eye on as more content is added.
It will be discussing how you can reduce the carbon footprint of your day-to-day life with easy tips and guidance. It's first post about reusing and recycling is detailed and informative, but also has a very friendly voice behind it, which is so important when encouraging people to pay attention to their impact on the earth.
The Ethical Unicorn blog is ran by a London-based artist and writer, Francesca Willow. Again, she wants to encourage as many people as possible, regardless of their lifestyle, to consider incorporating eco-friendly practices into their day-to-day life.
The thoughtful and relateable tone of the blog makes it very readable, and visitors can read about everything from zero waste campaigns to fair trade fashion. One of my favourite recent posts is about how you can make sustainable choices regarding nightlife too.
Nottingham-based blogger, Steph, discusses cruelty-free cosmetics on her blog, The Zombie Said, along with other thoughtful posts on topics such as cooking and body positivity.
Not only is there a friendly and approachable feel to the site, it also has a gorgeous design which shows you can continue living a glam lifestyle while also keeping your carbon footprint in check.
For a 17 year old, Tolmeia is certainly putting many adults' lifestyles to shame as she constantly pushes towards an ethical and sustainable lifestyle on her fashion blog.
The blog aims to encourage people to find out where their clothes come from, and to learn about how they can incorporate both ethical and sustainable fashion into their wardrobes and become 'conscious consumers'.
The Good Life Company, ran by Evie Calder, is worth checking out itself, as it's got everything from tips on reducing carbon emissions to tasty vegan recipes. But, the Fox & Moon blog is particularly lovely (probably because I love reading all about living a more sustainable life, all from the comfort of your home)!
It covers comfy clothes which are kind to the environment, ethical alternatives to everyday household objects, cutting down on plastic, and more.
Living Life Natural (.com) is a fab online shop that sells all sorts of organic and natural products, from candles to food.
It's blog is one of the best healthy living blogs on the internet in my opinion. Whether you want to find out how you can look after your hair while being kind to the environment, or travel with as small a carbon footprint as possible, it's got you covered.
It's relevant and keeps up with current trends, while also producing evergreen content that will never not be useful - definitely one to bookmark!
