The Green Scene

fashion blogger

Hi, I'm Beth, sustainable fashion writer and founder of THE GREEN SCENE: a place to share ideas and inspiration about ethical and sustainable style, and promote a more mindful attitude to how we think about fashion. 


After working in the industry it became clear to me that drastic change is needed in the way that we produce, shop and consume, and so in 2015 I started my blog in order to encourage more conscious choices and provide the information and resources to help others do so. You'll find everything from upcycling tips and DIY guides to brand reviews and industry comment pieces, as well as information on the sustainable fashion scene in Berlin, where I currently live.

Follow me on Instagram @greenscenestyle for more 'slow fashion' inspiration or check out Twitter for the latest updates.
