If you’re anything like us, your Instagram feed is a montage of birds-eye smoothie bowls, fashionistas and two-tone interiors. And while this provides endless inspiration, adding a little zen amid the stream of monochrome apartments and Adidas-adorned fit-girls can go a long way to keeping you grounded.
We’ve rounded up our favourite earth-conscious Instagram accounts to sit between your friends and fashion bloggers. From rolling hills to organic home-cooks, these are sure to get your earth-loving fingers tingling.
Adriana Sinke’s account is plastered with pastel skies, snow-capped mountains and still lakes. Based in Vancouver, her ethereal images are all engrained with a sense of longing, a desire for beanies and boots we didn’t know we had. She has a special knack for giving life to a grey day, making the dull seem radiant and projecting a stillness in her landscapes that transcends to the viewer. You wont regret this follow.
Following the feed of this natural history conservation student is like catching a glimpse into a cabinet of curiosities. Her passion for the environment is paramount as she showcases the earth in all its beauty. From a feather to a flower to a great ocean, youngmeerim reminds us that the world is a stunning place to live.
Beth Kirby takes us back to a time where foals played in paddocks and tarts were made in chrome crockery for afternoon tea. She is a fashionable farm girl who gives beauty to simplicity, or as she aptly describes it, conveys ‘the art of slow living’. Needless to say, her hunter-gather lifestyle is making us want to tie flowers in our hair, wear cotton smocks and get married in a barn…or at least watch Pride and Prejudice on Netflix. She is worth the follow.
Sarah Britton’s account reminds us to tread lightly on the earth everyday, starting with the crops we farm and food we eat. Recipes bursting with fruits and vegetables splatter across her eco-friendly feed, displaying a love for wholefoods and organic practices we cant help but want to replicate.
We love the concept behind @passionpassport – a community of travellers, storytellers and photographers inspiring you to travel – because what is travelling if not meeting new people in foreign lands and coming together over a love of place? A stream of idealistic landscapes, urban sprawls, deserts, beaches, cities – it’s all here in your passport to the globe. These photographs are so beautiful they’ll have you packing your bags.
A New York resident but self-confessed nomad, Kirsten Alana takes us on her journey around the globe. From suburban houses to distant farms, Kristen’s images give insight into lives all over the world, making the foreign feel familiar. Scrolling through her account is enough to get you ready for an adventure but first you’ll have to decide where to go because it seems there’s nowhere this girl hasn’t been!
