Bonjour & Welcome!
My name is Chloé Lepeltier. I'm a content creator & a community organizer.
I was born in France and spent most of my childhood in a volcanic region in the SouthEast 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 now call Portland, OR, home.
Conscious by Chloé
I started this 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 aim to inspire and motivate my readers to live a simpler, greener and happier life.
I am a proud member of Ethical Writers & Creatives.
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 800+ like-minded people, co-organize Portland's Zero Waste Conference, and have 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 an interactive map of eco-resources that can be found in Portland and wrote a Zero Waste City Guide to Portland included in the Zero Waster's Travel Companion.
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.
