GREEN ISLAND at Strictly Sustainable

"It was during my Yoga Teacher Training not so long ago, surrounded by an amazing bunch of earth conscious women that I started to look at the daily choices I was making regarding my single use plastic consumption. I began making small changes at home which seemed to have a ripple effect when I told my friends and family. One problem I kept coming across when ordering products for myself was they were arriving in huge amounts of plastic wrap and packaging. I was horrified. I was buying eco friendly products but they were contributing to the problem. And so Green Island was born.

 

I wanted to create a stylish, high quality, reasonably priced range of products that would help people make the switch to a more plastic-free life. I wanted to package those products in a sustainable way, which means you won’t see any plastic in our packaging when your orders arrive. I also wanted to give back which is why we have partnered with One Tree Planted and will plant a tree for every single order at Green Island.

 

Finally, I wanted to create a community of like-minded people. Somewhere to share tips and ideas to help inspire others to start making little changes of their own towards living a more plastic-free life.

 

I still have a long way to go on my plastic-free journey. We are all forever students. One major thing my yoga course taught me is that when people come together with a common passion for something, amazing things can happen!"
