For inspiring us to change how we see wellness, and for platforming voices towards just and regenerative futures
Kamea Chayne’s journey shows us that there are indeed numerous different ways to be an activist in our digital age. Her journey started in the sustainable fashion space, as a blogger focused on conscious fashion and living. She created Conscious Fashion Collective: a directory for fashion brands that focus on environmental and social impact, and an online guide for those who want to improve their shopping habits but don’t know where to start. After that, she pivoted to focusing on the wellness space, looking to explore the intersections between personal wellbeing and Earth’s wellbeing. In 2016, she wrote Thrive: An Environmentally Conscious Lifestyle Guide to Better Health and True Wealth, a self-help resource that talks about exactly that—encouraging people to expand their views of wellness to more holistic definitions.
In 2018, Kamea embarked on a new phase of her journey, starting Green Dreamer, a podcast and multi-media journal that delves into holistic healing, ecosystem restoration, true abundance, and universal health. Through her (almost entire listener-funded) podcast, she’s interviewed over 300 thought leaders and change agents working towards these goals, and shared wisdoms from all over the world with listeners who are interested in reaching deeper alignment, balance, and reciprocity on Earth. Alongside her podcast, she also writes UPROOTED, a 100% reader-supported newsletter that critically examines all things related to sustainability.
Through these various platforms, Kamea explores how sustainability encompasses a diversity of fields and disciplines—like mental and emotional health, Indigenous teachings, and social justice, and seeks to reflect this multidisciplinary, intersectional understanding of sustainability into her work online. But if you think that’s all, you’d be wrong. Kamea is also a Duke-certified health coach, and she’s also working to make the health and wellness space more holistic, bringing in her learnings from the various people she’s spoken to. With elegance, strategy, innovation, and strong communication, she’s on a quest to expand the idea of wellness while leading the sustainability revolution.
For her work, Kamea has been featured in The North Face and REI’s “Rewind Nature” series as one of the changemakers, a series that focuses on the need to turn back the clock and undo the harm that has been done to the world by showcasing people who are making strides on topics like mass consumption and carbon footprint reduction. Her work doesn’t stop here: Kamea is on an ever-learning journey to enrich life, collective wellbeing and biocultural diversity on Earth, and invites anyone and everyone who’s interested to join her.
