The Living The Green Blog Awards (2019)
We need to get better at respecting the environment.
And some bloggers have done an incredible job at encouraging more sustainable lifestyles.
The Living The Green Blog Awards is a way to recognise their effort and help you find the best blogs to follow in 2019.
In three categories:
- Best sustainable blog for photos
- Best blog at encouraging sustainability
- Blog with the most researched content
Here are the winners:
Best sustainable blog for photos: Unfancy
Unfancy is the blog with the largest Instagram following on our list.
Indeed, it is the one with the best-looking photos.
Caroline, the author, started it when she decided to cut down on the number of clothes she has and to survive on only 37 pieces of garment for a year. In her own words:
“Unfancy was born in 2014 out of a desire to find my style and curb my mindless shopping habit. Back then, I had a closet full of cheap clothes but “nothing to wear.”
So I decided to try out a capsule wardrobe and live with a small + structured closet of 37 pieces. Unfancy was my journal, the spot where I shared my daily outfits and the lessons I learned along the way.”
To discover her great taste, check out, for example, her article Vintage Jeans: 5 Ways to Wear Them
Best blog at encouraging sustainability: Ethical Unicorn
Ethical Unicorn was started by Francesca Willow, a passionate writer.
In her writing, she encourages her readers to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. Here’s what she says about the blog:
“Ethical Unicorn aims to take a holistic, fact-based approach to sustainable living and social justice. As well as the larger problems that are obvious to us, the blog aims to thoughtfully discuss systemic and hidden cycles that also need to be broken.”

Blog with the most researched content: EcoCult
EcoCult wants to provide what they call:
“A curious, thoughtful, science-based view into the international sustainable fashion industry.”
Editor-in-Chief, Alden Wicker, does a great job at sharing in-depth analysis of what’s sustainable and what isn’t.
You can feel their commitment to having a science-based view every time you decide to immerse yourself into one of their articles.

2. Eco Warrior Princess
It is one of the most comprehensive blogs about everything that is sustainable.
While keeping the focus on ethical fashion, the articles (few a day!) often diverge, like for example It’s Time to Stop The Glorification of Busy
When Instagram’s Best Dressed List by Rafinery29 features a blogger, you know her website is worth having a look. Especially if it is all about being a conscious shopper.
