Five Sustainable Instagram Accounts We Love!
Every day on our social media feeds, we are constantly seeing sales, new stock and an over consumption of clothes and everyday items which aren’t sustainable for our planet. But it’s amazing to see so many people online who are setting out to make a difference, and we’ve come across so many people who are sharing their journey to a more sustainable lifestyle, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite sustainable Instagram accounts who are inspiring us to live more consciously every day!
When we first launched MAiK, we were lucky enough to share a studio with the amazing Alice – a London-based Sustainable Fashion Stylist, blogger and lecturer who has been pioneering Sustainable Style since 2009.
She is also the co-founder of Novel Being’s – the world’s first agency exclusively representing Fashion Stylists, Hair & Make-Up Artists, Props and Food Stylists. Who all exclusively work with sustainable, ethical, environmentally friendly products.
