Want To Go Green(er)? These 6 Sustainability TikTokers Will Help You

April is Earth Month, a time of the year that is dedicated to spreading environmental awareness and highlighting issues that affect our planet, such as climate change and global warming. While it’s super important to be striving to be eco-friendly all year long, April is the perfect time to start your sustainability journey by educating yourself on the different ways to be conscious of the environment and live a life that is more green. After all, we all only have one Earth, and combating environmental threats in order to protect this planet is very important. 

There are so many different ways to be sustainable, though, and it can be overwhelming to try to figure out where to start — especially for college students who may have limited resources or access to eco-friendly solutions. If you’re interested in learning more about the different categories of eco-friendliness  and ways we all can be more sustainable, then following some sustainability TikTokers is the perfect way to get your feet wet and learn from people who implement sustainability into their lifestyle every single day. 

Here are six sustainability-focused content creators on TikTok who provide great eco-friendly tips and tricks for college students that will have Mother Nature saying thank you.

Rejecting this culture and creating personal style 💚🌿 #sustainablefashion #haul #thrifthaul #microtrends #fastfashion #overconsumption #personalstyle #sustainability #climatecrisis #fashiontiktok

Americans throw out more than 12 million tons of furniture every year. I originally started designing my home with secondhand furniture to avoid contributing to that statistic, but now I’ve fallen in love with the process of sourcing secondhand and designing a home that’s one of a kind. #secondhandhome #secondhandfurniture #sustainablehome #fastfurniture #secondhandhomedecor #thriftedhome #vintagehome
