7 Sustainable Instagram Accounts to Inspire You While You Stay at Home

It's a tough, seemingly relentless news cycle. We stay connected for updates, while those same updates bring more hard-to-process information. And yet in the face of all this, we're seeing the positives of humanity coming together in mutual recognition and support; an increased demand for local production; reductions in CO2 emissions; a crafting renaissance. And the new realities of social distancing are encouraging some of us to rethink our lifestyle priorities... [1]

To change it up a little, provide some distraction, and feed your mind with uplifting content while you #stayhome, ECOLOOKBOOK has found seven sustainable Instagram accounts to follow that will inspire, make you feel good and possibly even bring a smile.

Whether you are looking for creative ideas to keep the kids entertained, new vegan recipes, home workouts, cool tips for a conscious lifestyle, 'why' sustainable fashion, or just some humour and happily distracting posts, these accounts are worth more than a quick peek. Happy browsing!

Courtney Adamo, co-founder of baby brand @babyccinokids and founder of parenting e-course @intheloop.nurture, gives us a window into the family of seven's Byron Bay life on her popular Instagram feed. Setting aside the impossibly spotless house and well-behaved brood, the photography is beautiful and you will be inspired with eco tips, games and crafts for keeping your children busy, how to set up a simple, stylish home for a busy family life, and how to dress sustainable (in a terracotta linen kinda way). | @courtneyadamo
