Social Media has taken the world by storm for more than 10 years. From Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest down to Tumblr, Social Media is something that's unavoidable whether you love it or hate it. But not everything on Social Media is negative and It always depends on who YOU follow.
More than likely your friends/followers list is full of family and friends (and maybe some cliche inspirational quotes you follow). I know it can get tiresome watching all your friends and family shoot 15 second videos of them at some club or showing off what they just ate for brunch, which is why I personally decided to follow social media accounts that really resonate with me. Accounts that occasionally keep me away from the 'norm' and really have value in my eyes.
So, I gathered up my 5 favorite Eco-friendly social media accounts that you can follow today just to spice up your account a bit:

They provide sustainable products for a waste-free future. All of their posts give us insights on how little we know about single use products consuming our planet/home, as well as how much damage and waste goes into our oceans affecting all animals.

From vegan hand soap, dish washing soap, to natural and organic deodorant, even pet products that are waste free and natural free, I mean have you ever wonder how much longer it takes for your plastic poop scoop bag to break down when it is contained in non-compostable plastic bags? Where it'll most likely end up, in a landfill due to the lack of oxygen which some never breakdown. The Zero Waste Store offers plant based poop scoop bags, and eco-friendly poop scoop bags that rid you of those guilty feelings you probably have since using a single use plastic bags seems more convenient.
