In exactly a month, Portland will welcome its first Zero Waste Conference.

And I'm very proud to be one of its 2 co-organizers.

Brion Hurley and I met on various occasions over the past couple years, notably through Recycling Advocates, the non-profit he's the President of. We also both attended the Master Recycler Program and the Agent of Change training of the Center for Earth Leadership.

Last June, he reached out to me and asked me whether I'd like to help him organize a Zero Waste Conference.

Hell yes!

We are very proud to announce that Recycling Advocates and Zero Waste PDX will be organizing Portland's first Zero Waste Conference on Sunday 14th October from 2 to 6 pm at Taborspace, in SouthEast Portland.

All the proceeds from this event will be donated to Recycling Advocates.

A Complete List of the World's Best Zero Waste Bloggers by Conscious by Chloé

I don't know about you, but I love to follow bloggers from my own city. I like being able to identify familiar places and be informed of what's happening around me.

But I'm also curious to know how people live on other corners of the planet and I'm always on the hunt for entertaining ways to practice my second and third languages.

And of course, since I'm a member of the zero waste community, I want to showcase the work that my fellow bloggers, YouZubers and Instagramers put into the world.

That's why I've compiled the following list and created the following map of the world's best zero waste content creators around the world.

I hope you'll find new or familiar sources of inspiration for your journey to sustainability.



South Africa

America (North)

In French

Don't hesitate to share your favorite zero waste blogs in the comments and I'll update the map regularly. Thank you!

5 Favorite Conscious Blogs by Conscious by Chloé

I am a big consumer of news and podcasts and have also been an avid reader of all kinds of blogs for the past 10 years. I've relied on a number of ways to keep up with my favorites (RIP Google Reader) and now use Feedly to stay up to date with my daily conscious, style and interior design blogs.

From eco-fashion to minimalism, mindfulness, activism, and zero-waste cooking, here are 5 of the best conscious blogs you can find in my feed, here are 5 of the best blogs you can find in my feed.

Reading my Tea Leaves for Conscious by Chloé

Lifestyle - Reading my tea leaves

Erin Boyle lives in a tiny Brooklyn apartment with her husband and 2 kids. Her blog is a constant reminder to consider every item that enters your life. I read her book this winter and highly recommend you do the same.

Favorite section: It's hart to chose, but Erin's life in a tiny apartment posts are a big inspiration to me.

Style Bee for Conscious by Chloé

Style - Style Bee

Once you've started reading Lee Vosburgh's journal, you'll immediately want to become her best friend... in order to be allowed to borrow all. her.clothes! Check out her Insta Stories, they're a great way to see how Lee styles various outfits from the same base layers.

Where to start: Her 10 x 10 challenge really caught my attention and I'm also currently loving her lounge wear series (#CurrentlyWorkingInMyPJs).

Ashley Neese for Conscious by Chloé

Spirituality - Ashley Neese

I've only been reading Ashley's blog for a couple weeks, but it's already one of my favorites and a great resource for anyone interested in subjects ranging from holistic beauty to mineral therapy.

An inspiring read: Ashley's gratitude practice really resonates with me.

Ecocult for Conscious by Chloé

Information - EcoCult

Ecocult was founded by Alden Wicker, a NYC-based writer whose bold reporting style kept me coming back. Alden is also the co-founder of the Ethical Writers Coalition, which I recently joined.

Why I read Ecocult: Alden's week-end reading is an endless source of information, from eco-fashion, to travel and activism.

Zero Waste Chef for Conscious by Chloé

Food - Zero Waste Chef

I have to admit that Anne Marie's blog is not in my feed (I don't really follow cooking blogs), but I surely have been reading it a lot lately since I've starting experimenting with the sourdough starter I recently brought home from a food exchange.

Favorite recipe: Anne Marie's sourdough crackers recipe is everything I had been looking for after I realized that only a small portion of my sourdough starter was going to be used to bake bread. I used the rest to make these crackers and felt like I had just saved the world (#understatement).

Those are only some of my favorite conscious bloggers. Do you follow any of them? Who else do you follow? Recommend them to me in the comment section below so I can add them to my reader.
