Read about the YouTubers using their platform to show how they live consciously and sustainably.
Sustainable living is a philosophy that aims to reduce their carbon footprint on the planet both personally and within society. It encourages people to reduce the amount of Earth’s natural resources they use daily while also decreasing the negative impacts we leave behind. This could be switching to renewable resources such as solar power, upgrading to energy-efficient appliances, changing your diet to be more plant-based, using alternative methods to car transportation and public transportation (biking, walking), and so on.
Some people think that changing to a sustainable lifestyle from their current lifestyle, but baby steps to sustainable living are much better than not doing anything at all. There are so many people and resources out there that can help educate you on how to switch to a sustainable lifestyle. So many YouTuber influencers, lifestyle influencers, and even celebrities use their platform to show how they live consciously and sustainably. There is most definitely something our society can learn from them on how to live a sustainable lifestyle.
Here are some of the top YouTube influencers that focus on living more consciously and sustainably:
Sustainable living doesn’t always mean using solar power, chargeable cars, and only eating plants. It can come in the form of living a minimalist lifestyle with a focus on mindset. Matt D’Avella is a Netflix filmmaker, YouTube influencer, and entrepreneur who focuses on a minimalist lifestyle, productivity, and mindfulness. Matt offers many different courses that can help you become a minimalist in life so you can live a much more sustainable life and create a positive impact on your life and our planet. He is a great person to learn from since his life is so minimal, and he focuses on mindfulness which is a great thing to do when trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle. His approach to sustainable living is a little different than most, but it’s a unique approach to reducing your carbon footprint by learning that you can live without certain things.
Switching to a completely different industry, Alba Ramos is a beauty YouTuber who only uses beauty products with non-toxic ingredients. Believe it or not, there are so many different beauty products that use toxic ingredients that are bad for your skin and our environment. Alba uses her platform to educate people in the beauty industry on what ingredients are good and which are toxic. Another thing that she talks a lot about is animal testing of cosmetics, which is a huge issue for our environment. Animal testing kills roughly 100,000-200,000 animals each year. This makes a major impact on our planet by killing hundreds of thousands of animals every year. There are thousands of other ingredients brands can use that are already on the approval list for cosmetics. Ramos isn’t just non-toxic in her beauty routine but within every aspect of her life. She practices sustainable living in every part of the philosophy, and we should all try to be more like her!
When talking about sustainable living, Ashante (yes, the artist) practices sustainable living through her use of self-care advice and social and cultural awareness. While this may not seem like it falls into the realm of sustainable living, social injustice is just as much of a threat to our planet as global warming. Ashante focuses her time and energy on discussing the different cultural and social issues the world faces right now. She puts a big emphasis on self-care and making sure your mental health takes priority in your life. While this may not seem like it’s affecting our planet, it is in ways you aren’t even thinking of.
