Best Green Lifestyle Bloggers 2017

Going green is easy to do and helps to protect the environment. If everyone started practicing the basic principles of an eco-friendly life, it would decrease the level of pollution and prevent climate change. Unfortunately, many do not understand the seriousness of the problem, so it is important that we spread our message to whoever will listen.

Congratulations to all of those listed under our four categories:

TOP 10 GREEN LIVING BLOGGERS

 

1. Green Living Guy

Seth Leitman is not only the 'Green Living Guy’ but also a best selling author, editor, and expert on going green and living an eco-friendly lifestyle. The Green Living Guy provides stories and news about green living, green cars, green fashion, and Seth’s own Green Guru Guides.

He told Greenmatch where he gets inspired when finding a new story to write about: “I get inspired everyday by real action. Meaning a solar install is happening. Or someone's just bought a Chevy Bolt or a Tesla. Someone or a company switched all their lighting and saved $1M a year. Real action is always better. It shows how the free market and people are going green
regardless of policy or politics.”

On Moralfibres, Wendy shares her interest for sustainability and focuses on hints & tips that are easy to implement in your everyday life. In her green lifestyle blog, she covers topics such as Life & Style, Food & Drink, Home & Garden, as well as about families and travel.

“Most of the time my articles draw from quite a personal place, so I look to what's going on in my own life and write from there. If I have discovered something great (e.g. Vegan Milk that Doesn’t Curdle!) then I'll share that with readers, or if I have been pondering something and have done some personal research on particular topic (e.g. Is Borax Safe?) then I'll share that. If I've been window shopping for ethical clothes then I'll share that.
I like to try and build rapport with my readers
- and I like to think this approach helps with that.”
