Whether you’ve been working towards having a conscious life for decades or you’re only dipping your toe into sustainable living, it’s a world of constant updates and endless new technologies. There are so many online resources for conscious consumers to find guidance that the prospect of endless choices can be a little daunting. 

Every action we take in our everyday lives can be a mindful one. And while not everyone is up to fully engaging in conscious living, each little step can make a big difference in the grand scheme of things.

Thinking of our readers who love to be up to date or simply get great tips about living more sustainably, we’ve prepared this list of essential conscious websites. The sites below cover different parts of sustainable living, from reducing waste to sustainable fashion, eco-travel, and all-around hubs of information.

Ask Nature

The Montana-based Biomimicry Institute is an NGO created in 2006 that focuses on bringing about new inventions and solutions to human challenges by mimicking nature. Their goal is to apply millions-of-year-old natural processes into new products, processes, and policies to produce the least impact on the Earth. 

Ask Nature is a Biomimicry project that serves as a bridge to nature-focused solutions for innovators of all sorts. The website hosts over 1,500 articles on how nature does things and what innovators can learn from it, while also supporting entrepreneurs by marketing their nature-inspired designs through the Biomimicry Launchpad programme.

Going Zero Waste

Perhaps the greatest concern of anyone who engages in conscious living is reducing their carbon footprint and all-around waste. Seeing as we live in a linear economy that produces things to be dumped not long afterwards, it’s difficult to know where to start and how to stay engaged in a way of life that gets rid of waste. Going Zero Waste serves as a fantastic guide to everything related to waste reduction, from basics like composting and recycling to small everyday changes everyone can do to their everyday lives, including beauty routines and even house cleaning.

The site, created by eco-living enthusiast Kathryn Kellogg, is a wonderful step-by-step guide on how to live a healthier and more sustainable life.


We all know the immense damage the fashion industry does to our planet, its creatures, and the people working across supply chains; in all, fast fashion is one of the most ecologically damaging industries on Earth. However, there are many creators and activists currently working on making a true difference, creating a more accessible sustainable fashion for everyone. EcoCult features many well-researched articles about what’s going on in the sustainable fashion industry, including new ideas, interesting brands, and activists to keep an eye on. You’ll find plenty of curated guides that will help you become a more aware consumer, activist, and professional.

Green Global Travel

Travelling is one of the greatest joys of life, yet it’s also an environmentally damaging industry. Airplanes are great polluters and traditional travel packages are often disrespectful of local flora, fauna, and even of the traditions of native human populations; but, of course, there’s also a way to be more conscious about travel. Green Global Travel is a hub of ecotourism with plenty of posts from actual conscious travellers who focus their voyages on nature and wildlife conservation and cultural preservation. This is a blog for those who love the planet and all of its creatures, focusing on outdoor adventure and responsible travel; it was created by a couple but it also features guest blogs from other travellers.

The Green Mama

Many people want to engage in conscious living without the knowledge of how to be sustainable without spending a lot of money. Financial constraints are a reality for a vast number of people, particularly parents, and it seems easier to raise children with less-than-ideal practices that can be damaging to their health and that of the planet. Manda Aufochs Gillespie created The Green Mama website as a guide for parents of all socioeconomic backgrounds that want to go green. Manda wrote a book for low-income families in the U.S. and Canada who want to engage in conscious living, and she’s worked to “green up” projects like urban ecovillages, daycares, and orphanages – and this is all knowledge you’ll find on her site, with pieces from her and her collaborators.


It can be difficult to know how to make decisions in a way that improves the world somehow yet it also takes your personal situation into account. Treehugger is a sustainability site with thousands of articles on how to make sustainable decisions by informing consumers of what each option entails. Whether you’re a novice or a longtime conscious buyer, you’re sure to find great information in their 20 years’ worth of posts. Information and a desire to drive sustainable living into the mainstream are their main focus, which is why all their articles are well researched and committed to transparency.

The Ecological Society of America

Founded in 1915, the ESA is one of the oldest ecology-based organisations in the world. This organisation is made up of environmental scientists and professionals, and they offer a wide range of information, from scientific papers to resources for teachers who are looking to create consciousness in their young students. The ESA website is a great place to learn about what ecology means, what’s being done about it, and the science behind it. As environmental issues have become increasingly cross-sectional, the ESA has also added a focus on diversity in its studies and data.

There is a world of sustainable living from all walks of life, and we hope these sites can guide you towards a more aware journey!
