GREEN WARRIORS 2021
At Green Is The New Black we get to meet some seriously inspiring people. People who are changing the world with their everyday actions. We strongly believe that every little bit counts which is why we are always banging on about #LittleGreenSteps to #LiveMoreConsciously. Meet this years Green Warriors, an environmental award series and photo exhibit.
We are thrilled to introduce you to the fourth annual list of Green Warriors. This list is full of people from all walks of life. Social media activists, to NGO founders. DJs to architects. Humans working at the international level, to those working at the local community level. And certainly, the issues our Green Warriors care about cross all aspects of sustainability and touch every part of our lives. Sustainability, of course, is no longer just about saving the planet, as we’ve all learned over the past year.
While you may not be familiar with all of them (yet!), we believe they are truly changing the game. The environmental and social impact of their actions has rippled across the world. Our philosophy has always been to take #LittleGreenSteps to #LiveMoreConsciously, and this is something our Green Warriors actively practice while empowering others to do the same.
The theme for this year’s shoot was “The Intimacy of the Soul” where we celebrate the authenticity of our warriors in their own environment. With the current state of the world, we pushed the boundaries of our creativity and used digital tools to capture our warriors intimately in their homes, their safe spaces, their world.
We collaborated with two very talented photographers, Olivier Yoan and Nicoline Aagesen, based in Europe, who shot our warriors all around the world via their phones. Alongside his commercials and stunning shoots, for Net a Porter, Jimmy Choo or Roger Vivier, Olivier Yoan co-founded The Ené, a media platform that curates positive brands and retailers. Nicoline Aagesen brings her solar energy and makes the world sexier through her community of artists, My Camera My Rules, who have joined forces to make an outlet for art and all creative endeavours.
Each of the incredible humans you are about to meet are changing the world for the better with their daily work and influence. We have a lot to learn and share from them. Join us in taking the time to appreciate their efforts and drawing inspiration to continue your green journey with #littlegreensteps.
