The Eco-oversharer

Real Name: Lauren

Occupation: Freelance Copywriter

Super Powers: Convincing people to be more eco-friendly no matter how small or large the action, remembering an absurd amount of 'fun' facts about the environment and the harm we're doing to nature (and ourselves)

Weaknesses: Eco-anxiety & burn out, remembering an absurd amount of 'fun' facts about the environment and the harm we're doing to nature (and ourselves) 😊, falling prey to 'greenwashing'

Hobbies: Kitty cuddles, finding ways to compost in the city, reducing my carbon footprint as much as possible - walking & biking over cars/Ubers; taking my own containers to restaurants for to-go-containers, highlighting the voices of companies trying to make a positive impact — telling my friends about fun new brands that I’ve discovered

Interesting Fact: I used to make my own deodorant and body butter but after a while it got to be too much work and getting the materials wasn’t any more eco-friendly than purchasing something from the store. I now try to support small eco-friendly businesses for these products.
