About me

I guess you are visiting this page since you want to learn a bit more about me. This isn’t my favorite subject to write about, but I’ll give it a shot 😉

About me?

So, just a quick introduction. My name is Iris and I’m 27 years old. I live in the southern part of the Netherlands. I love nature on this planet. Also, I’ve got a big heart for almost all kind of animals. I’m that kind of girl that will give your dog attention before you. Sorry about that!

While growing up I heard about all the issues we challenge concerning climate change. For example, in middle school, we all had to watch the movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ created by Al Gore. But back then it never really hit me. I mean, my own life was way more interesting at that age. Later in life, I started traveling where I encountered the beauty of this world. This made me realize that this is something that I want to help preserve.

Due to my science-related background, I started to be curious about how to do so. That is why I started to educate myself by reading articles that were being published or watching documentaries. This slowly led to more awareness and even more astonishment… I knew so little about the impact we have while living our day-to-day lives!

The seed for ‘Earthly Iris’ was planted. My purpose for this platform is not only to inspire you to live your life ‘a little greener’. It will also be a personal journey to become a more sustainable person myself!
