Sustainable Living

The world that we live in contains finite resources. Some are renewable, but others are not. On the other hand, the world’s population is growing constantly at 81 million per year. Estimated.

So, imagine at what rate we are consuming the world’s finite resources. Way too fast, that’s for sure! This is why we need to live in a way that protects, replenishes and restores the resources Earth has.

Each of us needs to play a part in:

The Conscious Claire Blog was started because we want to get involved in Sustainable Living. To show everyone that Sustainable Living is possible, we follow the lives of Tracy, Maria and Claire, as they make changes towards Sustainable Lifestyles.

This is what we at Conscious Claire are most passionate about. Join us, and let’s become the change we want to see.

Our Zero Waste Mission

We live in a beautiful world. But, we’re polluting it horribly with all the things we discard as waste. Plastics and microplastics are the biggest problem, because plastic waste lasts for decades, even centuries.

Zero Waste literally means ‘Throw Nothing Away’. It’s an important facet of Sustainable Living, so it’s something we’re passionate about at Conscious Claire.

Zero Waste is an ideal that we need to work towards. The Conscious Claire Blog demystifies Zero Waste by showing you how to achieve this a step at a time. We’ve broken Zero Waste down into lifestyle hacks such as:

  1. My zero waste kitchen,
  2. Zero waste for coffee and tea lovers,
  3. Our favorite Zero waste bathroom and beauty products
  4. Plastic-free oral care and so much more.

We invite you to join us in our journey towards Zero Waste and Sustainable Living.

Living Consciously

…is a long road. Join three friends in their journey towards a more conscious life!

Conscious Living is being aware of the need to nurture our planet. It’s about Living Sustainably to be able to protect the origins of our natural resources. Its goal is to replenish those that can be restored, and wisely reuse the same resources in non-wasteful and non-polluting ways.

About Conscious Living

In Conscious Claire, we will introduce the journeys of real people, and share real travels, real experiences, and real lifestyles. We will look at how their activities work towards looking after the Earth and her resources.

Conscious living is when we make deliberate decisions in our day-to-day life. Decisions that uphold certain principles and values. Living a Conscious Life has everything to do with what we eat, what we wear, what we do, what we say, and what we stand for. Living Consciously involves making the most out of the Earth’s resources, but at the same time, working to nurture and sustain those resources.

Conscious Sports

Conscious Arts

Photo- and videography and writing about matters of sustainability are Tracy’s passion.

“Alone, we can do so little; Together, we can do so much!”
“There’s no such thing as ‘AWAY’. When you throw something, it always goes somewhere!”

About The Brand

Conscious Claire is a brand that supports living in a way that nurtures and sustains the environment that we’re living in. We’re on a mission to keep it real through the lives of Claire, Tracy and Maria. They are 3 friends with different lives, but sharing One Common Goal – Sustainable Living.

Sharing their stories shows you that living sustainably is not impossible. Each of these ladies started out with a pain-point – plastic pollution, swimming through trash in the ocean, weather extremes. These pain-points made each of the ladies desire changes that would protect our planet. It’s all about making changes, a step at a time, one day at a time.

We’re big on Zero Waste and Plastic Free lifestyles, so we will be exploring products and life hacks that are ‘Clean’, Ocean friendly, Compostable and Sustainable. By doing this, we would love to help others understand and embrace the idea of sustainable living.

Learning from those who are ahead of us in this journey and sharing experiences is our daily motivation. We look to partnering with like-minded individuals and corporates who are involved in sustainable living initiatives. Are you into ethical practices, giving back and helping communities? So are we.

Let’s do this together. Let’s inspire each other to live sustainably. Let’s be the Change!
