Jo Lorenz is a creative director, writer and founder of ethical news hub, Conscious Citizen, which features lifestyle, environmental, social and political opinion pieces, in an effort for readers to be invariably more aware of their social impact.
Jo works with sustainability pioneers in the global fashion and lifestyle industries to promote artists, brands and designers who honour ethical, environmentally-friendly and sustainable trade. Along with her written works for various publications, her push for sustainability enables readers to become #ConsciousCitizens and minimise the disastrous environmental and humanitarian effects of unconscious consumerism.
In her work as a clean fashion advocate, Jo has moderated events for not-for-profit global movement, Fashion Revolution, a signatory on the UNFCCC’s ‘Fashion for Global Climate Action’ initiative. Additionally, working closely with pioneering environmental-charity, Redress, Jo acts as Guest Writer for social impact fashion labels, whose collections are made from up-cycled waste materials.
Along with her husband, Jo is Co-Editor for Climate Briefings, a journal committed to the dissemination of news related to climate change, and the pair will be attending Al Gore’s Climate Reality Training Corps this June.
Jo’s acclaimed and unique aesthetic sees her working with brands that align with her message of ethical and sustainable style, thoughtful consumerism and clean living. She has more than 20 years of creative experience and loves to design unique, compelling and original content for her clients. Amongst others, she has worked with Tata Harper Skincare, Denimsmith, Earth Tu Face, Intercontinental Resorts, Moët & Chandon, Myer Australia, Emporium Melbourne, and Votary London.
