Environmental Activists


It is amazing how well Mother Earth is doing now that we are all staying in our rooms. Our environment is only benefiting from the quarantine and that is what many experts and environmentalists also note. It is therefore very important to maintain our ecological lifestyle. And with the help of the motivational words and posts of these seven eco-warriors on Instagram that shouldn’t be a problem at all.

1. Aditi Mayer

Aditi Mayer is a talented journalist and photographer with a passion for sustainable clothing labels. She did an internship at a sustainable clothing brand and soon noticed the importance of an ecological fashion industry. After her internship, the young creative jack-of-all-trades decided to set up her own blog ADIMAY on which she addresses the importance of a green future. On Instagram, she has already gathered more than 25,000 followers and shares interesting IGTVs in which she gives tips and tricks, but also talks about discrimination and sexual harassment.

2. Lauren Singer

The American Lauren Singer has been in the business for a little longer. She decided in 2012 to go completely plastic and packaging free and founded her blog and YouTube channel Trash is for Tossers to share her sustainable tips with the rest of the world. Singer also started her own company The Simply Co. On her online webshop, she sells packaging-free and 100% environmentally friendly products. The singer is undoubtedly one of the most well-known American environmentalists on social media: on Instagram, she has a whopping 380,000 followers.

3. Xiye Bastida

The 17-year-old climate activist with Mexican roots Xiye Bastida has been advocating for a sustainable world for as long as she can remember, and has recently started doing so on social media. She grew up in the indigenous tribe of Otomi-Toltec, where the environment and the health of Mother Earth are central. After moving to the United States, Xiye decided to live there as ecologically as possible and encourage others to do the same. ‘It is your generational responsibility to leave the world more beautiful than if you ended up on it. That’s what my parents have always taught me,” she said in an interview with Hello Giggles.
