They are also passionate about trying to live a sustainable lifestyle and share their experience on learning how to navigate modern life with the environment in mind. What they are finding is that being happy, healthy and caring for the environment is not a ‘one size fits all’ lifestyle and there are many ways in which we can make a difference every day. They were kind enough recently to include Sustainability in Style in their round up of their Favourite Ethical Instagrammers *squee*.
