Bonjour & Welcome!
My name is Chloé Lepeltier. My pronouns are She/Her.
I was born in France and spent most of my childhood in a volcanic region in the South of France. At the age of seventeen, I moved abroad to study and have been traveling the world ever since.
My passions span multiple disciplines — from feminist literature to sustainable fashion to backcountry snowboarding — with curiosity & creativity as the common thread.
I currently split my time between a small village in the French countryside and the high desert of Central Oregon.
Conscious by Chloé
I started Conscious by Chloé, my sustainable lifestyle blog, in the fall of 2015 as a creative outlet to express my thoughts & inspirations, and document my search for happiness. Here, I chronicle my daily style, DIY experiments, and adventures in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
I'm passionate about zero waste, slow living and sustainable fashion.
I aim to inspire and motivate my readers to live a simpler, greener and happier life.
Never miss a blog post by getting them straight into your inbox.
On my journey to Zero Waste, I curated my online shop, a conscious selection of items ranging from non-toxic beauty products to the ultimate zero waste shopping kit or beautifully crafted ceramics. Everything you need to make your life simpler, greener, and happier!
Zero Waste PDX
Through Zero Waste PDX, I lead a community of close to 4,000 like-minded people, co-organized the first edition of the Portland Zero Waste Conference in 2018, and have had the opportunity to talk at conferences and to teach workshops.
If you're interested in my services, please check out my contact page or send a note.
I also created this interactive map of eco-resources that can be found in Portland and wrote a Free Zero Waste City Guide to Portland.
Where to start?
Embarking on an eco-conscious journey can feel intimidating, so I compiled simple ways to immediately reduce your impact on the planet. Jump in!
Thank you so much for reading.
