Sustainable Fashion Blogger
Laura Botero, also known as Eco Style Blog, is a Colombian native, that beautifully brought her two biggest passions together- fashion and nature. She uses her online presence to bring goodness into both these fields by promoting conscious purchasing and knowing about where your clothing comes from. We had a chance to ask her some questions:

Tell us a bit about your journey and how you came to where you are.

I’ve always had a great respect for nature and wanted to share my experiences.  It’s been difficult to read about how human beings are harming the environment, so I created Ecostyle to bring awareness to environmental issues. I want people to understand that they can live a sustainable life without compromising their lifestyle.

Where did your passion for environmentalism living begin?

I’ve been into sustainability and environmentalism for 5 years when I first started to notice how bad the consumerism was, then I became a vegetarian when I started reading about the meat industries, how bad animals are treated and how harmful the industry is for the environment. So first I started to make changes into my lifestyle and when I realized it was easier than I thought, I decided to spread the word from my experience.

What has been the biggest obstacle or struggle in living an eco conscious life?

Getting negative feedback from people that don’t believe the environment is important.  Also writing my blog in english is a challenge because it is my second language.

How have you been able to change the way people perceive sustainability?

Influencing people’s life and somehow making them more conscious about our planet is my passion. I love when my family and friends are excited to share with me the sustainable changes they have made to their lives after reading my blog. Sustainable means to treat the planet as if we were planning on staying because there is “NO PLANET B.” and that’s what people perceive when reading my blog

Do you have an all-time favorite sustainable purchase or brand that has changed your life?

My shopping bags, I never leave home without them.
