Every small action we take, like refusing a straw or using a reusable cup, sends the message that we want to see change and are willing to push back against the status quo to see that positive change. It may feel weird asking for “no plastic please” or questioning a brand about their environmental impact, but there will always be those who support you, right around the globe. Here are just a few of the amazing influencers and bloggers who are sharing their earth-friendly habits to help inspire you.
