More and more eco influencers are using Pinterest to showcase everything from easy DIY projects to eco-friendly products. Here’s who to follow:
Described as “a one-stop shop for green news, solutions, and product information,” TreeHugger pins everything from wildly creative DIY art to sustainable design and fashion -- including some pretty sexy eco-friendly lingerie!
We must admit that we love the Grist’s “Nature Porn.” Run by its social media producer, Hanna Welch, Grist showcases boards with sustainable recipes (finally!), DIY projects and another favorite of ours: “Do Not Eat This.” Bet you didn’t know that a commonly used food dye in a Starbucks Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino includes crushed insects. We’re all about reusing and recycling but we’re not that eco-friendly!
Eco Party Time (ecopartytime)
Looking to throw an eco-friendly party? Eco Party Time’s gorgeous boards are loaded with awesome ideas. Whether you’re planning a wedding or a birthday party, Eco Party Time pins fun -- and doable -- eco-friendly ideas.
NRDC BioGems (nrdcbiogems)
With boards like “Eco-Friendly Mama,” “True Love Goes Green” and a “What is YOUR Favorite Green Product,” the board ran by Natural Resources Defense Council’s BioGems has more than 1,800 followers and 21 boards. Though we love some of the DIY projects, who could resist re-pinning every photo on the Baby Animals board. Totally cute overload!
Ecouterre, an online magazine dedicated to all things eco-friendy design and fashion, has a companion Pinterest that does not disappoint. From shoes made from recycled material to “living” fashion (who knew there were wearable planters?) Ecouterre’s 16 boards prove that great style can be sustainable.
Green Living (greenlivingblog)
Green Living’s “Gone Green” board has more than 200 pins (and over 3,500 followers) and “Tips to Go Green” has almost 150 pins with simple advice (use white chalk to remove greasy stains) to fantastic green products. Looking to get rid of unwanted pests (even lice) naturally? Green Living is loaded with eco-friendly solutions.
Although InfographicList has multiple boards with just about everything, we were instantly impressed by its Environment and Living boards. Need simple energy saving tips for window treatments? There’s an infographic for that. Curious about solar energy costs? There’s an infographic for that, too.
The official Pinterest for the popular television channel includes “Green Home,” “Garden” and “Handmade” eye candy along with smart advice, DIY projects and gardening tips.
Elizabeth Cliff (ecliff519)
Elizabeth has boards ranging from vegetarian recipes to eco-friendly activities with the kids. But we love her inspirational “Green Living” board, where she re-pins reviews of the best eco-friendly light bulbs and products (we need those re-usable snack bags) along with some pretty crafty DIY cleaning tips.
