SIMPLIFYING SUSTAINABLE LIVING
We know that living life in sustainable style is rewarding, challenging, and sometimes lonely!
Which is why here at Sustainability in Style, we’ve been providing tools to help you identify what motivates you and to take action in Sustainable Style minus the overwhelm and confusion.

OUR FREE MAGAZINE
It’s the newest addition to our suite of tools designed to help simplify sustainability so you can take action on the things you care about (minus the eco-overwhelm). The content ties together our monthly ‘Take Action’ theme. In a fast-paced media-saturated landscape, we hope that this way of sharing will provide you access to all our useful tools, without feeling lost or overwhelmed. Each month we will send you the latest copy of the magazine and our most recent downloadable worksheet to your inbox (you will only receive one email a month from us). You will get reminders via our social media channels of what content we’re championing throughout the month.
We hope that you enjoy getting your Sustainable Style fix in this easy-to-read format and that it gives you a break from the abundance of social media updates and overflowing inboxes we now navigate daily.

WHERE IT BEGAN
FOUNDED IN 2010
Sustainability in Style moved online in 2013 to keep Katie accountable during her year-long Wardrobe Workout shopping hiatus.
Since then Katie has continued her education and employment in Sustainability Education and Science. Working as a research officer (since 2011), and completing her Master of Environment majoring in Sustainability Education with a research focus on social media for sustainability. A yogi since 2006 Katie undertook her teacher training in 2011 seeing a need for tools to reduce overwhelm in increasingly changeable times. This space is the result of her labour of love for sustainability education and science communications and a desire to inspire others to take action without the overwhelm, eco anxiety or compassion fatigue. When she’s not here with you she’s working as a research officer or part of the USC Fashion Studies teaching team.
A WEALTH OF CONTENT
CONSIDERED LIVINGHi There! If you’ve found your way to this page of resources for the first time, I just wanted to say a big (warm and summery) welcome. Each January here at Sustainability in Style we explore the reoccurring series New Year, New ConsYOUmer. This theme...
Hope and fear are two feelings we are familiar with. If asked to demonstrate fear, we would likely rise to the challenge with ease. We are well aware of fear (and most of our modern-day media is presented through the lens of fear). If you were asked to explain hope, it may be a little harder to access in your mental filing cabinet. While most of us are aware of what ‘hope’ is, it is not readily presented in our media channels, and it can be difficult to define.
Have you ever stopped to consider why living life in Sustainable Style can be such a challenge? It’s east to become eco-overwhelmed when you start trying to break every decision or action down to assess how to make the best choice for people and planet. Here at Sustainability in Style we aim to take the complexity out of sustainable living and help you be eco-friendly based on your values.

What's Being Said About Workshops
“What a fabulous day learning about sustainable styling and shopping. All the information Katie provided over the workshops informed and motivated the participants on their journey towards buying (or not) decisions that will bring about change in the fashion industry. I certainly left with a broader knowledge of how advertising can influence my buying decision, greater skills to make the best out of what is already in my wardrobe and information to assist on finding ethical fashion sources.”
Eco Style and Nature & Health
“Nature & Health, Australia’s original and best natural health magazine ”
Sustainability in Style founder Katie Roberts was Eco Style columinist for Nature and Health from December 2016 until their final print copy.
