Green Island offers a range of eco friendly products packaged in a sustainable way. The collections include essentials for the bathroom, kitchen, on-the-go, as well as drinkware, straws, silicone ziplocks and stretch lids, beeswax wraps, bags and bundles. The bundles include the Everyday Essentials and the Ultimate Family Bundle, two very popular items in the shop. Green Island's most popular items are silicone stretch lid sets, organic shopper bags, organic cotton mesh bags for fresh produce, and stainless steel water bottles.
Berry started Green Island after looking at her own daily consumption of single-use plastics. "I was just at the beginning of my journey to adapt to a more eco friendly, plastic free lifestyle", says Berry. "I began ordering products online but when they arrived they were wrapped in so much plastic packaging, put inside plastic bags and sealed with plastic tape. These products were being sold as 'eco friendly' but the packaging was anything but. That's when the idea for Green Island was born."
Green Island's mission is to offer everyday essentials to families and individuals, reduce single-use plastic consumption and give useful information to help people live a more plastic-free life. The brand partners with One Tree Planted, an organisation that supports global reforestation, which plants a tree for every single order at Green Island.
"It was always important to me while planning the business that I was able to give something back to the planet that we had taken so much from", adds Berry. "I looked at various charities and organisations and when I came across One Tree Planted, they just stood out for me. I love the idea that every customer places an order with us knowing that they have contributed to planting a tree. We choose where in the world we want our trees to be planted each month, depending on what is happening in the world. It feels really personal".
