Environmental activist, science communicator, presenter, top model. This is one kickarse cookie. An epic ambassador and advocate for change, Laura Wells, 34, is dedicated to helping people (including her more than 81,000 Insta fans) live more sustainably, via moves such as cutting back on plastic and embracing eco-friendly fashion. She’s also a total water baby, so you’ll often find her in the waves as well as campaigning for her marine mates (turtles!).
Wellness is multifaceted. It includes loving yourself – who you are and your body! It’s about being content enough to give back and being aware of the environment; understanding that each and every thing we say, do or emit has a flow-on effect that impacts your – or somebody else’s – wellbeing.
Getting salty in the ocean is a sure-fire way to get me in a good mood. I also love a tough workout to challenge my mental space, or just getting out in nature.
Eco tips? Reduce your plastic consumption. Also switch your superannuation to a company that only invests in ethical and sustainable brands and projects. No fossil fuels. And cut down your meat intake – there are so many delicious vegetarian meals!
Fashion is full of great sustainable and ethical brands. I love Yevu, Spell, Patagonia, Ace & Jig, Citizen Wolf, and GlamCorner for rental pieces.
