Titanic Spa’s top 10 eco-friendly blogs

As the UK’s first eco-spa, we love reading about sustainable living, zero-waste and being green. We also love to support those who have made it their life’s work to find new and innovative ways to be eco-friendly, all the while educating others on how they can do the same for our planet.

So you too can find some great inspiration about being green, we’ve rounded up our top 10 favourite eco-friendly blogs and explained why we think you should start reading them too.

Gypsy Soul blog

Living in the quiet Cornish countryside, Gypsy Soul blogger Gina is dedicated to helping others live a more sustainable and simple lifestyle. Gina’s blog is separated into four categories of eco-living: sustainable, minimalism, zero-waste and wellbeing. Each of these categories offer an array of helpful articles for people new to the eco way of life and those who are also well-seasoned in the lifestyle.

“Over the last five years, we have been on a mission to drastically change our lives,” says Gina on her website. “Our ultimate aim was to minimise, simplify and just enjoy life more. It has been a hard and long process, but we finally feel like we’ve got to where we want to be.”

I host lectures, classes and workshops about my zero-waste lifestyle.”

Pebble magazine

Pebble is an all-singing, all-dancing online magazine with just about everything about eco-living that you can squeeze into one place. From ethical fashion to eco-travel, Pebble is all about being able to “enjoy our lives without harming the planet”, while “supporting people who have taken a risk to find a better way of doing something.”

Behind this amazing online publication (and app!) is Georgina Wilson-Powell. The Pebble website describes the inspiration behind the magazine: “After coming to the realisation that we all need to start making a dent in the planet’s problems, rather than retrain as something useful like a mushroom farmer or shoreline manager, Georgina decided to use her experience and set up Pebble as a platform to support, share and promote positive stories from people who are doing far more cool and worthy things than writing for a living.”

Useless Wardrobe

Splitting her time between Denmark and London, sustainable fashion advocate Signe is dedicated to showing the world that being sustainable doesn’t have to mean unstylish. She’s also on a journey towards a healthier, simple lifestyle with less waste and more organic products.

On Signe’s blog Useless Wardrobe, you’ll be able to find a range of articles from second-hand shopping tips to how to make your own natural dry shampoo. Her passion for sustainability stems from her career as a clothing designer: “A few years ago I quit a position as a full-time clothing designer to be able to work on a more freelance basis, and to focus on my biggest passion: sustainable fashion and lifestyle.

“I intend to find alternative, more sustainable ways to enjoy fashion and life in general – building lasting capsule wardrobes, fixing my garments instead of throwing them out.

“When I find something new, I do my best to go for ethically made items or something made in better, more sustainable materials.”

Zero Waste Home

Zero Waste Home is run by mother and blogger Bea, and offers helpful advice for becoming a ‘zero-waster’ through her five Rs: refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle and rot – in that order! What started as an online blog has since led Bea to launch her own book – Zero Waste Home - and doing various talks about zero-waste around the world.

“Since adopting the zero-waste lifestyle in 2008, my life, and that of my family, has changed for the better,” says Bea on Zero Waste Home’s website. “We not only feel happier, but we also lead more meaningful lives based on experiences instead of stuff.” The family is so dedicated to being zero-waste, they only produce a pint-size amount of rubbish per year.

“I have always been creative, and I love making things that can help people, all while maintaining the natural beauty of this world,” says Addie on her website. “Growing up, I always wanted to be an architect. Once I got to college and teeter-tottered between architecture and interior design, I discovered and fell in love with the principles of sustainability. It started with sustainable building design and reuse, moved on to include sustainable fashion, and now the concepts of sustainability have infiltrated my entire life. I have pursued a more sustainable lifestyle ever since, and I want to share this with you.”
