4 Blogs to Help You Reach Your Sustainability Goals
Welcome to Blog Profiles! We regularly select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. As we celebrate Earth Month, we are recognizing a few sustainability blogs that we you should be reading. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
Let’s talk sustainability.
With Earth Day drawing near, it’s the perfect time to consider some environmentally friendly changes you can make in your everyday life. If you’re looking for inspiration and advice on how to start, here are four sustainability blogs contributing to the conversation.
1. Sustainable Food Center – The Beet
The Beet, a blog created by the Sustainable Food Center in Texas, is your beginner’s guide to eco-friendly eating. This blog contains inspiration for your dinner as well as information on how you can help support programs that make healthy eating affordable.
Whether you want to try out a fully vegetarian meal or swap your beef patties for turkey burgers, this blog will help you find a meal that’s good for the earth, your body, and your tastebuds.
Here are a couple of my favorite posts:
- Curried Butternut Squash Soup
- Austin Public Health and SFC Team Up to Expand WIC Voucher Program Reach

2. Ms. Paula Presents | Sustainable Fashion & Living
If you love style and clothing but hate that fast fashion contributes to an unsettling amount of waste, you’ll love this blog dedicated to sustainable fashion.
The Ms. Paula Presents blog is full of product reviews that will help you avoid products that aren’t worth the swap. Additionally, you can read posts about companies that are making a difference that you may have otherwise not heard of. In a recent blog post, Ms. Paula highlights a company that turns human hair wigs into compost that is used to improve soil fertility in gardens.

3. Get Zero Waste | Cleaning
While Get Zero Waste also has tips for sustainable food, lifestyle, and fashion you should definitely check out, it is the cleaning portion of this blog that I find most useful. Trying to find all-natural cleaning products that actually work in a sea of greenwashing can be discouraging, but luckily Kathryn has put together honest reviews for the products and hacks that she’s tried out.
Easy adjustments for a big impact:

4. Sustainably Lazy
Sustainably Lazy is your guide to going green. If you’re new to sustainable living, Sophie’s guides and product reviews are there to help you get started.
The blog also contains important information on why sustainable living is important, and it even offers alternatives to unethical and unsustainable businesses you might be unknowingly supporting.
Posts to help you make a difference:
- Ethical & Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Amazon
- The Best Natural & Eco Cleaning Brands (That Aren’t Greenwashing)

My 4 year old wants to protect sea creatures from plastic, even in the school holidays and extremely windy days on the beach. Like so windy your hair is always in your mouth and it is a battle to get the litter in the bag. He's a good egg.#plasticpollution #FridaysForFuture pic.twitter.com/CayptmCbLY
