As I’ve recently been getting more and more into lessening the environmental impact I have by reducing the waste I produce, I’ve been turning to one of my favourite media outlets – YouTube – for inspiration and guidance. Thankfully, there are a host of vegan, zero waste YouTubers creating regular, informative and entertaining content, and I thought I’d give them a little shout out today.
The first channel I want to mention is curated by Sophie Ollis, a fellow vegan blogger who I’ve been following on Twitter for some time, but whose videos I only just discovered. Sophie’s channel combines zero waste living with a minimalist approach, and her videos are a good place to start if you’re looking for pointers on those two lifestyles.
Kristen’s YouTube channel covers all sorts including ethical fashion, vegan travel and life in Greece. Her videos also chart her zero waste and minimalism journeys. I especially enjoy Kristen’s DIY videos, where she shows her audience how she cuts her own hair and makes her own toothpaste. She has a second channel, Kristen Etc., which is also well worth checking out.

If you’ve just made the switch to a zero waste and/or minimalist lifestyle, you’ll likely be looking out for content that caters to where you’re at right now. Charlotte’s videos catalogue her own progress in terms of reducing her waste and moving into a more minimalist lifestyle; her content includes room tours, trash check-ins and DIYs.

Immy’s channel was the first I came across when I started researching zero waste living. Her short videos are so easy to watch and almost addictive, with each one providing new tips and information to help you on your way. If you’re unconvinced about how well veganism, minimalism and a zero waste lifestyle compliment each other, then Immy’s channel will surely help you see the light.
I hope this roundup helps to give you some inspiration for fresh, new YouTube content to eat up. Let me know who your favourite zero waste and minimalist content creators are below!
