Trending on YouTube: Sustainable Fashion, Living and Clean Beauty

In celebration of Earth Day, we’re spotlighting some of the many creators who help the planet shine a little brighter every day. Here are six who are leading the trends around sustainable fashion, living and clean beauty today.

Sustainable Fashion

Many people are beginning to take a closer look at what they’re wearing these days – not just to make sure that their look is on trend but to examine its potential impact on the environment. Sustainable fashion haul videos have increased by over 1,300% this year! As shoppers are looking to fill their closets in different ways, they’re turning to YouTubers to help figure out how.

Justine Leconte is a French fashion designer who’s become a leading voice in the growing trend of sustainable fashion. Her channel gives viewers tips on how to shop for sustainable fashion and how to build a sustainable wardrobe on a budget. Justine has over 500,000 subscribers, 40% of whom subscribed just last year.

Since 2018, we’ve seen a 13x view increase on sustainable haul videos, and creators are uploading these types of videos 190% more every year. In a vintage twist, UCLA film student Ashley has found an audience of more than one million subscribers with a thrifting-focused channel called Bestdressed.

Fun fact: She currently has the most-viewed “sustainable haul” video.

Sustainable Lifestyles

Sustainable culture isn’t just about looking good; it’s also about living thoughtfully in all facets of life. From minimalists to tiny homes, van living to the zero waste community, sustainable lifestyles are on the rise at YouTube. Views for videos that provide tips for living a more eco-friendly lifestyle doubled in 2018 compared to 2017.

One of the creators driving this trend is Canadian Candace Hutchings and her channel the Edgy Veg. Now with over 300K subscribers, she’s introduced to her audience a revolutionary new way to approach vegetarian and vegan cuisine, as well as shown the benefits of zero-waste living.

Fun fact: Her video with 20 tips on how to reduce waste is the most-watched video about sustainable living last year.

Meanwhile, Austin-based creator Shelby is a self-described eco-realist who uses her channel Shelbizleee to showcase “zero-waste swaps.” She gives helpful everyday tips on how to replace our most commonly used items with sustainable options to lead a less wasteful lifestyle.

And other channels on YouTube (#Vanlife and #TinyHome) go even bigger than daily zero-waste tips to a complete overhaul of how we think about our homes.

Over 400K subscribers follow the adventures of Jinti Fell as the Australian family travels across the world in a van. The channel exemplifies the tiny home/van life ethos, a movement dedicated to reducing one’s footprint economically and materially to the bare minimum one needs to live.

Clean Beauty

Beauty creators and viewers are also looking to cleaner and healthier alternatives for their go-to beauty products. There’s a lot to unpack given there’s no global standard: the EU has banned 1,328 chemicals from cosmetics, but in the U.S., it’s only 11. Still, last October we saw a 7x increase in monthly views of videos with Clean Beauty in the title.

One creator in this space to watch is Allana Davison, a beauty and lifestyle vlogger with over half a million subscribers. She’s dedicated videos on how to do a full face using purely 100% clean beauty products.

Allana and all the other YouTubers forging ahead in sustainability have not only found a way to minimize their own environmental impact, but they’ve also inspired others to do the same. Mother and entrepreneur Krystn Keller was already a fan of clean beauty when grappling with how to help her son Elliot, who suffered from severe eczema over his entire body. His skin condition was debilitating to the point where he missed developmental milestones. Determined to find a solution, she began watching soap-making tutorials on YouTube (i.e. The Soap Queen) and learned how to make her own soap. After several months of trial and error, she found the perfect formula that not only helped her son, but also inspired her to create her own business, Keller Works. She now sells clean soap products in stores across her home state of Alabama and online.

Whether it’s a tiny swap or a big life change, we can look to YouTubers across the world to motivate us, teach us, and guide us on our way to a more sustainable life.

YouTube to live stream Coachella Weekend 2 for the first time ever

For the first time ever, YouTube will keep the cameras rolling for Coachella Weekend 2 with the exclusive second weekend live stream of the festival! After a record-breaking Weekend 1 live stream earning over 82 million live views — an increase of over 90% compared to views in 2018 Weekend 2 will feature “Coachella Curated,” a new curated live stream of performances sponsored by Pantene & CALVIN KLEIN in the U.S., and Garnier and Coca-Cola in Canada. YouTube is making sure no one misses out on the action, bringing all of the “can’t miss” moments from the desert to music fans all over the world through the immersive live stream available to fans wherever they are.

First-Ever Weekend 2 Coachella Curated and Yuma Tent Live Streams (April 19-21)

Coachella Curated, hosted by Jason Bentley from KCRW, along with special guests, and available to live stream on Coachella’s YouTube Channel on any screen (desktop, mobile and living room) and within the YouTube Music app, will take a deep dive into the festival experience and deliver fans a slate of original content. Weekend 2’s curated live stream features select songs and performances from both weekends, artist interviews and commentary, mini-docs, animated adventures and more.

Coachella Curated trains its sights on artists from across the line-up and captures them both onstage and at home — spanning the globe to share stories from the homes of performers like Billie Eilish, Cola Boyy, Idris Elba, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Calypso Rose, Bob Moses, Mr Eazi, and Nina Kraviz. These traveling tales, filmed on six continents with festival founder Paul Tollett, offer a unique look at the international energy that comes together on the Empire Polo Grounds before beaming back out via YouTube.

Confirmed artists appearing in the Coachella Curated live stream display the diversity of talent taking the stage in Indio, from emerging artists Little Simz and Cola Boyy to headliner performers. The multi-genre musical menu also offers chart-toppers, such as Bad Bunny, Jaden Smith, Tame Impala, Billie Eilish, and SOFI TUKKER; festival favorites Bob Moses, Mac DeMarco and RÜFÜS DU SOL; and DJ heroes Dillon Francis, and Nina Kraviz. American acts Maggie Rogers, Khruangbin and Tierra Whack add female-fronted flavors of rock, pop, hip-hop and R&B, while international acts BLACKPINK, Los Tucanes De Tijuana, Calypso Rose, Christine and the Queens, Mr Eazi and Burna Boy showcase the borderless taste and boundary-less sounds of Coachella 2019.

Weekend 2 will also tap into the energy of the Yuma Tent, Coachella’s deep desert disco, broadcasting, for the first time, full DJ sets on a second dedicated channel. The Yuma stream will feature sets by Idris Elba, Guy Gerber, Nicole Moudaber, Deep Dish, Nocturnal Sunshine, and more.

Tune in April 19 – 21 starting at 5 p.m. PDT for an all-new Coachella streaming experience on Coachella’s YouTube Channel on any screen (desktop, mobile and living room) and within the YouTube Music app.

Relive Weekend 1 Through Video On Demand Performances and Interviews

Also not to be missed are Weekend 1 interviews from 19-year-old robot, Miquela who spoke with J Balvin, King Princess, and JPEGMAFIA  all of which will air during the Weekend 2 live stream. Miquela spent Weekend 1 hanging out at the YouTube Music lounge as seen here and here. Tune into @youtubemusic and @lilmiquela on social this weekend for additional coverage.

Experience Coachella Through The YouTube Music App

The YouTube Music app (iOS, Android) will be home to this year’s most complete Coachella music experience with the launch of live streaming. Whether you’re at home on the couch or at the pool in Indio, you can enjoy playlists based on this year’s lineup, such as The Lineup, Hip-Hop, Latin, watch or listen in audio-only mode to the live stream both weekends, and check out performance clips after the festival is over on the Coachella YouTube Music channel.

YouTube delivers Coachella 2019 to millions of global music fans with official two-weekend live stream

For the ninth year in a row, YouTube continues to take the magic of Coachella beyond the Indio desert and into the homes and phones of millions of people around the world with the exclusive two-weekend live stream of Coachella 2019. YouTube is providing a global stage for artists and fans to connect with live stream performances from headliners to some of the biggest artists on the rise, including Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande, Tame Impala, Kacey Musgraves, Billie Eilish, BLACKPINK, Juice WRLD, Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa, Gryffin, Maggie Rogers, Chvrches Little Zimz, Cola Boyy and many more.

YouTube Music is turning it up a notch at Coachella 2019, making sure music fans — no matter where they are — can enjoy the world’s preeminent music festival in convenient and immersive new ways.

Weekend 1 Live Stream (April 12-14)

YouTube’s Weekend 1 live stream, presented by T-Mobile in the U.S., and Garnier and Coca-Cola in Canada, will give music fans around the world the best seats in the desert for groundbreaking performances from their favorite artists when they tune into Coachella’s YouTube Channel on any screen (desktop, mobile and living room) and within the YouTube Music app.

Fans tuning in will have their choice of three live stream feeds with different artists performing simultaneously. Programming starts at 4 p.m. PT on Friday, April 12, and runs through the weekend. To ensure you don’t miss your favorite performance, personalized viewing schedules can be created and live stream channels will automatically change to artists selected by fans.

Highlights from the weekend will be available through a video-on-demand hub, with co-hosts Nadeska Alexis, Valerie Lee, and special guests to bring fans interviews with artists and creators from throughout the festival.

First-Ever Weekend 2 Coachella Curated Live Stream (April 19-21)

For the first time ever, YouTube Music and Coachella will keep the cameras rolling on weekend 2, with a carefully curated live stream sponsored by Pantene and CALVIN KLEIN in the U.S., and Garnier and Coca-Cola in Canada. Coachella Curated, hosted by Jason Bentley from KCRW, will take a deep dive into the festival experience and deliver fans a slate of original content—encore and live performances, artist commentary, mini-docs, animated adventures and more—to accompany the best bits of live music and in-studio interviews with Coachella performers.

Coachella Curated sets its sights on artists from across the line-up and captures them on-site and off, spanning the globe to share stories from the homes of headliner performers, festival favorites and newly discovered talent. These traveling tales—filmed on six continents with Coachella’s Paul Tollett—offer a unique look at the multinational energy that comes together on the Empire Polo Grounds before beaming back out via YouTube.

Confirmed artists appearing in the Coachella Curated live stream display the diversity of talent taking the stage in Indio. Weekend 2 programming and live stream schedule will be available soon.

Experience Coachella Through the YouTube Music App

The YouTube Music app (iOS, Android) will be home to this year’s most complete Coachella music experience with the launch of live streaming. Whether you’re at home on the couch or at the pool in Indio, you can enjoy playlists based on this year’s lineup, such as The Lineup, Hip-Hop, and Latin. Watch or listen in audio-only mode to the live stream both weekends, and check out performance clips after the festival is over.
