Sustainable Celebrities Doing Their Bit During This Pandemic



With more than one fifth of the world currently in lockdown, there are a lot of people trying to find things to entertain themselves. The motivation to be as productive as possible dissipates. But, everyone is in the same boat and the search for motivation has led to sustainable celebs giving a helping hand to their followers.


School closures means that parents are having to home school their children, but that’s easier said than done. Free lessons are a great way for everyone to access the same content, learn something new, and even keep your kids entertained! Here are just a few sustainable celebrities doing their bit to help.



Broadcaster and natural historian, Attenborough is considered a national treasure in the UK. His passion for the environment and protecting vulnerable wildlife makes him one of the leading activists in the world. During this pandemic, he is offering free Geography lessons to students via the BBC. These lessons are in place to help those at home due to school closures. Developed alongside teaching professionals, Attenborough is teaching students about oceans, animals, and the environment. WE can’t think of a better Geography teacher!



There are so many websites offering free courses during this pandemic. It gives a chance for people to gain more skills or simply learn about something they’re interested in. In collaboration with the London College of Fashion, Chief Sustainability Officer at Kering, Marie-Claire Daveu, has offered her expertise in their online course, ‘Fashion and Sustainability.’ This course gives an insight into the Luxury Fashion industry, highlighting the issues and possible solutions they’re currently tackling. Along with other Kering members, Daveu shares the development of sustainability within luxury industry.




Founder of Kora Organics, Miranda Kerr has always been a sustainability activist. Her passion for all things natural has led to her ‘Wellness Wednesday’ live chats. Each week she is joined by relaxation experts, from yoga teachers to therapy practitioners. Doing these workouts and hearing from industry experts is a great way to relieve any stress and have a mid-week break. These live chats have a similar effect as mukbangs; it makes you feel as though you are working out with other people, and who doesn’t want to feel like they’re working out with Miranda Kerr!



Finding the motivation to workout is even harder when you don’t have access to gyms. But actor and climate change activist, Chris Hemsworth, has made home workouts easier by making his fitness app, Centr, free during March. In an Instagram post announcing the free six-week trial, he said: ‘Centr was founded to make health and happiness accessible to all, and I hope that this will make that access even easier during the current health crisis.’ Despite the free trial only being available for March, he continues uploads home workouts on IGTV so you can still get a taste of what his fitness app is like.
