About us

The Conscious Insider is a lifestyle blog focused on slow living, sustainability and self-care. 

Our mission is to empower readers with the knowledge and tools they need to make sustainable choices in their everyday lives, by providing them with well-researched and evidence-based alternatives.


At The Conscious Insider, we understand that every small action we take can have a profound impact on the world around us. That’s why we are committed to providing our readers with the information and resources they need to make more sustainable and ethical choices in their daily lives.

As consumers become increasingly aware of the environmental impact of their purchases, they are willing to pay more for environmentally-friendly products and services. However, this has also led to the rise of “greenwashing,” where brands make misleading environmental claims to entice consumers. This practice is prevalent across various industries, from food to fashion, beauty, and wellness.

We believe that as a consumer, you have the power to make a difference through your purchasing decisions. That’s why The Conscious Insider is dedicated to helping you navigate through the marketing tricks and identify real sustainable initiatives.

We strive to help you find products that are not only better for you but also for the planet.


At The Conscious Insider, we strive to provide our readers with a wealth of information and resources on a range of topics such as eco-friendly products and self-care tips to sustainable fashion, clean beauty, and ethical home decor.

We believe that by promoting brands that use non-toxic and healthy ingredients, rely on ethical practices, and implement sustainable initiatives, we can empower consumers to make more informed and responsible purchasing decisions.
