Mareike became a cheapo out of sheer necessity as a PhD candidate in marine ecology. She saves every yen to finance diving trips to remote locations and a mild fashion addiction. She likes to put the eco into cheapo, and is a firm believer than you often can save your wallet and the environment by reducing and reusing. She likes to write about fashion, beauty, travel and sustainability.
