Living greener: The best sustainability blogs for inspiration

Nachhaltigkeitsblogs: Ideen für ein nachhaltiges Leben

Sustainability and consumption, two words that I don't think go well together. Because the most sustainable thing is not to consume anything. But we cannot live on air and love alone. So how should I make my everyday life greener? Which products are environmentally friendly and does sustainability always mean making sacrifices?

The founders of the sustainability blogs presented here also asked themselves these questions. They have decided to document their path and are taking us with them on their journey. Never with the claim to perfection, but always inspiring and helpful. Get tips on natural cosmetics, fair fashion and living with these blogs now.

Elisabeth Green

On elisabethgreen. com you will find a universe of ideas to make your life a little greener. Elisabeth has been blogging about topics such as sustainability in everyday life, natural cosmetics, fair fashion and healthy nutrition since 2013.

What makes Elisabeth Green special: Elisabeth is a real professional when it comes to evaluating ingredients in cosmetics and additives in food. And if you are looking for a natural cosmetic sunscreen, then you should definitely take a look at the legendary and annually updated sunscreen tests, because here every new release is pre-tested for you and you then just pick the best product for you.

Peppermynta - The Eco Magazine

I still remember a phone call from Fenja in 2016. She had just heard about FIVE and wanted to write about us. At that time we were both still at the beginning: FIVE was not much more than an idea and Fenja had just founded the Eco online magazine Peppermynta. You already know what became of FIVE . But if you don't know Peppermynta yet, then it's high time to dive into the incredibly great cosmos. If you are looking for inspiration for products that are not only beautiful, but also sustainable and fair, then you will find them here. From fair fashion to natural beauty and things of everyday life, the Peppermynta team curates everything that makes up a sustainably designed everyday life.

This is what makes Peppermynta special: The texts are aimed at all people for whom sustainability means more than separating the garbage. Fenja and Lara are persistent and really dig deeper when something doesn't seem logical to them. Her contributions have already got many a supposedly green ball rolling. I particularly remember your detailed articles about the sale of Oatly to Blackstone and the critical article about silver in period underwear.

Fashion Changers Magazine

The name says it all: the trio of founders around Jana Braumüller, Vreni Jäckle and Nina Lorenzen started with the mission to change the world with fair fashion. They are editors of the Fashion Changers Magazine in which they examine and question sustainability and fairness in the fashion context and inform us about the ecological impact and precarious working conditions associated with the fashion industry.

This is what makes Fashion Changers special: In addition to the magazine, the fashion activists undertake a wide variety of activities to implement their mission. With the annual specialist conference and the networking and consulting services, they offer support for labels and fashion designers. They are also the authors of the book Fashion Changers. How we can change the world with fair fashion, which is aimed at buyers and serves as a guide for fair fashion by presenting labels and illuminating backgrounds.

More fine sustainability blogs

The list is constantly being expanded.


This blogazine deals with the whole range of sustainable consumption and was founded in 2017 by Laura Mitulla, who by the way is also responsible for some beautiful photos of FIVE . The writers Laura, Eddie and Celine focus on the topic minimalism. They show that minimalism does not mean doing without, but rather adding value. As you can probably guess now, I think this approach is great, since the philosophy of FIVE goes in exactly the same direction. Laura also shares inspiration for green living on Instagram: ©lauramitulla.

Sustainable Life

Melanie and her daughter Joy founded their sustainability blog 2021. The journalist and the biology student are not only connected by their mother-daughter relationship, but also by their common interest in sustainable life. What started as a family project in 2021 has already grown into an informative blog with well-researched articles to help us make sustainable choices in everyday life.
