Five Minimalist YouTubers to Watch

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!

Please do share your favourite youtubers for some sustainable watching in the comments box!

    I’ve never watched any of these Youtubers but I’ll definitely check them out! I’m trying to not buy any new clothes at the minute either after decluttering my wardrobe and having two bags full to take to the charity shop I want to try and stop buying so many when they hardly get worn!

    I honestly don’t really watch Youtube a lot but I have been trying to lower my carbon footprint recently. I’m really interested in learning to be more sustainable so I’m definitely going to bookmark this post to watch the videos with my partner as we’re both determined to be much more kind to earth this year! I’ve definitely cut down on my spending habits in general, I used to be so wasteful and disposable with clothing but I refuse to buy things unless I’m 100% in love with them now and it’s honestly done my bank balance wonders haha! Great post, we should definitely be talking more about sustainability 🙂

    I don’t watch that much YouTube these days but I don’t even think I’ve heard of any of this. I’ll have to check them out and possibly get some inspiration. I’m not looking for a super minimalistic life but it would be nice to cut back in certain areas x

    I haven’t watched any of these youtubers before, will have to have a look. Definitely check out Lavendaire, she talks about minimalism, decluttering as well as self improvement, goal setting etc. I don’t normally bother with vloggers but she is great!

    I’m not really that much of minimalist but I’m definitely interested in minimising … if that makes sense? I’ve added these to my to-watch list — thanks for the recommendations! 😊
