Instagram is more than just pretty pictures, it’s a place to find inspiration and to sneak a peek into the lives of people both ordinary and famous. Each time you scroll through your feed you’re presented with images from people you admire or want to learn from. Images that quickly show you an idea or a place or the face of someone who could make an impact in your life.
As a green lifestyle blogger I’m always on the look-out for inspirational women who can help me start the day with a spring in my step. Organic gardeners, Eco-travelers, Beekeepers, and those living life on the farm. These are my top 15 Inspiring Green & Eco Women to follow on Instagram.
You’ll look long and hard to find a selfie in Becca’s feed. Instead, expect to be wowed by the pure beauty of mountainous wilderness, stretching vistas, and curious wildlife.
Hilary is a Californian beekeeper who saves honeybees by offering services for live bee removals. In her feed are photos of beekeeping, honeybees, and some of the crazy honeycomb she comes across inside the walls of people’s homes.
Farming is hard work but you wouldn’t know it by the simple beauty of Julie’s homesteading life. Expect poetic images of wild edibles, farm animals, natural materials, and her lovely little daughter.
Johnie leads the life of a beautiful bohemian tomboy – she surfs, rock-climbs, travels, lives in a van, and writes for a living. All in the setting of wild and unspoiled places. I want to live her life.
You want the low-down on ethical clothing and fashion? Natalie introduces us to brands, models the clothes, and gives discounts too!
Based in the Asia region, Paula’s photos capture the hope and beauty as well as the anguish of people living on the edge.
Erin grows and sells romantic Peonies, Sweet Peas, and other blowsy blossoms from her farm in Mount Vernon, Washington. Though I expect many of her followers are planning weddings, I follow her to see beautiful floral displays and to watch as she builds a successful green business.
Mystical and fierce, Sophie is a herbalist and wildcrafter. She sustainably forages many of her herbs from the wild and then transforms them into beautiful products and treatments.
Kate combines photos of green products, natural recipes, and inspirational quotes in her green beauty feed. You learn about keeping skincare as natural as possible while getting your daily dose of ‘Go out and get-em!’
Jill communicates the effects of climate change in beautiful and highly emotional illustration. It’s her goal to connect with and show the world what is happening to landscapes and animals in the furthest parts of planet.
On her tiny plot of land in a communal garden, Katie shows us in soft, pretty, images how to grow vegetables and fruit for our own table. It was Katie who inspired me to build my own wildlife pond
Kaity’s Nantucket life and natural kitchen are featured in her beautifully curated feed. Think edible flowers, vegetarian meals, and the joys of motherhood.
A master of Scandinavian interior design – well she is Danish! – Juila’s aesthetic is based around the idea of living with plants. She’s a self-confessed plant hoarder.
A romantic vision of life in a fairytale, Olivia’s feed is one of my secret indulgences. You can tell yourself that a life spent picking wildflowers, foraging for wild garlic, and keeping chickens isn’t realistic but here are the photos to show that the good life is somewhere out there.
Though you’ll find photos of her new baby and adventure travels on her feed, Linda is also the author of the CSA Cookbook. She shows how you can whip up local produce from farm boxes into nutritious meals and how to reduce kitchen waste.
