You’ll likely know that I’ve been trying to shop sustainably recently, especially when it comes to clothing and everyday expenses. My knowledge about sustainability is slowly growing and so it’s something i’d like to share today. Here are my five favourite minimalist youtubers, and if you do watch any yourself then I’d love it if you’d link them in the comments box!
As you’ll know if you’ve watched The True Cost on Netflix; many high street brands produce their clothes in factories in countries such as Bangladesh. These countries pay their workers little; in unsafe and cruel conditions, in order to allow these stores to sell their clothes at lower, lower, and even lower prices. These clothes don’t degrade well and end up piling up in our landfill; alongside plastics that can’t be recycled such as toothbrushes and food packaging. There seems to be an era of disposability; and this is incredibly damaging to the planet and is a huge predictor of climate change. Changing lifestyle habits is really vital towards reducing this impact, and so begins my journey to a more minimal and simple life.

When I first started my minimalism journey, I started watching various minimalism youtubers and so I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you today. Enjoy!
Rachel Aust is one of my favourite minimal YouTubers talking about diet, food and fitness, home, interiors and fashion. She’s absolutely adorable and goes to show that if you feel good on the inside, it’ll show on the outside too.
Madeleine Olivia is another one of my absolute FAVES. She’s so adorable, her weekly vlogs are amazing and she’s recently purchased the cutest cottage. I can’t wait to see the decor she uses – I just know it’s going to be adorable. Her videos are so informative, yet so realistic and really encourages me to make those next steps in my minimalism journey.
Janell Kristina is a mega cutie, I love her tattoos and her room is full of plants which I absolutely A.D.O.R.E. I’ve never watched someone who’s so honest about their journey and this is just one of the reasons I enjoy her content.
As a videographer, Matt D’Avella’s content is absolutely incredible. He’s realistic, humorous and I love wondering what he’s going to come up with next. He also has a few podcasts too, which are ideal for the daily commute!
Meghan Livingstone is the one I go to when I’m feeling lacklustre. Whether I’m feeling cluttered or disorganized, she’s bound to have a video that’s just perfect for resolving the problem. Her style is mega cute and simple and I just can’t get enough!
