As Earth Day dawns upon us, we’d often find ourselves either spreading awareness on the importance of protecting our planet, making pledges to start living sustainably or even practising it for just one day (baby steps!). If you’re any of the three, good job! Caring for our planet can be challenging especially if you’re just starting out. However, doing good doesn’t have to be daunting as many people see it. So to prove it, we asked five personalities to show us how they incorporate sustainable ways into their daily lives. Here’s a little teaser of their journeys:

As a freelance graphic designer, content creator and model, Bay often looks out for items or ways to be more sustainable.

As a sustainable fashion advocate, Seri often guides her followers on how we can be more conscious when it comes to shopping for clothes and dressing up.
