As I write this piece, I’m sitting at a hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark which recently renovated to power itself entirely by wind from the country’s blustery shorelines. Beside me, sits a 26-year-old Danish sustainable blogger Johanne from Bedre Mode who has long been a wealth of information about sustainable living and has recently spread her wings to collaborate with a conscious team of creators to create Sustain Yearly, a lifestyle magazine in both Danish and English printed on one of the only circular printing companies in Europe, KLS printing.
Conscious living has embedded itself implicitly into Danish culture, so much so, that even on our first day here, when Eco Cult arrived from Buenos Aires sans luggage (due to the airline losing it), she was able to replenish her wardrobe with second-hand clothes for less than $20 American dollars and fine ethical underwear and beauty products. All on one single street despite it being a Sunday (see my upcoming shopping guide to find out where and how).
