Home Meet the Team

What started off as a blog in 2010 by eco fashion advocate and environmental activist Jennifer Nini has grown to become a new kind of media brand, redefining what it means to live sustainably. It delivers the latest in green intelligence, the way you prefer to read it: cleverly, honestly and analytically – without the fluff and BS.

Eco Warrior Princess believes in media that matters. We report on the following topics: sustainability, social justice, ethical fashion, conscious living, feminism, responsible business, green tech and politics.

Eco Warrior Princess is made possible with the passion, talent and skills of other individuals who make up the core team and is the key reason we accept advertising revenue – they are paid for their contribution because we believe in ‘fair trade’.

To read more about how our ethical standards relates to advertising, read our disclosure.

So with all that said, we’d love for you to meet our team.

Jennifer Nini

Editor-in-Chief

Jennifer Nini is the founder of EWP and the Head Honcho who hates being referred to as the ‘boss’ although that’s exactly what she is. A true ‘ENTJ‘, Jen – as she prefers to be called – is a solutions-oriented individual who has deep respect for people who take action to solve global problems, and dislikes any inefficiency. A self-professed feminist, Jennifer believes in equality and inclusivity and calls out gender bias and lack of cultural diversity any time she spots it. She is a biophiliac, co-owns a certified organic farm, lives off-grid and is an imperfect vegan. You can learn more about Jennifer Nini here.
