My name is Carolina Toledo and I am a content creator for my own brand and social media (@_carolinatoledo). I usually talk about nature, fashion, beauty, decoration, sports and sustainable tourism. More recently, I founded the first Directory of Sustainable Shops and Associations of the Canary Islands.
Q: What made you adopt a more sustainable lifestyle?
I met a person for whom sustainability is a philosophy of life and that experience really opened my eyes for it. From then on, I decided to turn my life around and began an inner transformation that has brought me to where I am today.
Q: If you could share only one tip for someone who is trying to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle, what would it be?
Re-connect with nature. Nature is part of all living things on this planet and going back to our roots helps us to wake up for a more conscious life.
Q: As a sustainable lifestyle inspiration, what is your biggest goal?
My main goal was to dedicate myself to a project that would help people and create social well-being while taking care of the environment and allowing for economic development. At the same time, I wanted to feel that my work was actually useful and had a positive effect on society. With the creation of the Directory of Sustainable Shops and Associations in the Canary Islands, I can say that I am really achieving this.
Q: Do you have any stories of people that you have influenced into becoming more sustainable?
Every day people write me on social media to thank me for the content I share and saying that I have influenced them to lead a more conscious life, to change their consumption habits and, in general, to live a "slower" life. I find that beautiful. It really reinforces the fact that everything I do makes sense.
