What started off as a blog in 2010 by eco geek Jennifer Nini (you can read her story here) has grown to become a powerful voice of reason in a sea of 'ethical' shallowness. It is no longer a hobby blog updated by a lone sustainable fashion advocate and environmental activist.
It is a website that regularly publishes posts on topics that matter most to us: sustainability, social justice, ethical business, feminism, green living and politics.
Eco Warrior Princess is made possible with the passion, talent and skills of other individuals who make up the core team. These individuals are paid for their time and effort and is the key reason we allow advertising on the website. To read more about how our ethical standards relates to advertising, read this post
So with all that said, we'd love for you to meet the Eco Warrior Princess team.
Amanda Lopez - Copy Editor
Amanda Lopez is a freelance writer, editor, and self-styled yogi from Quezon City, Philippines. Born aggressively well-meaning with a permanent chip on her shoulder, her long-term goals include loving unconditionally, building impressive upper body strength, and creating as much positive impact—on others, on the environment, and on herself—as possible.
Ben McGuire - Business Manager
Aside from being Jen's fiance, Ben is also the silent business partner. He comes up with ideas and input for strategic direction, is the undisputed office clown, makes sure that everyone gets paid properly and is the one they blame if they aren't! He is also the magician that makes Jen look amazing at each and every photo shoot she agrees to do. Ben is an entrepreneur in his own right, running multiple other businesses as well as their organic permaculture farm.
Georgia Foley - Student Trainee
Georgia Foley is a student with many aspirations and goals, hoping to one day make her mark in the world. She is a lover of second hand shopping, making her own clothes and spending time at markets.

Ted Logan - Admin Officer
Ted Logan wields much power in the team - he is the Eco Warrior Princess email gatekeeper. He enjoys bringing order to admin chaos and has highly-developed interpersonal skills - as only 10 years of driving taxi cabs can give you! When he's not at Eco Warrior Princess HQ saving Jen - the once reluctant entrepreneur - from going insane; he is at the Queensland State Emergency Service, actually saving members of the local community from crises and natural disasters.
Myraine Policarpio - Writer
