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.

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.
