Green Island | Plastic Free & Eco-friendly Everyday Essentials | Vera-Bee

Green Island

Sheenagh is the founder of Green Island. Originally from London, she now lives in Essex with her two gorgeous boys and their cockapoo, Barney. 

It was during her Yoga Teacher Training, surrounded by an amazing bunch of earth conscious women, that Sheenagh started to look at the daily choices she was making regarding her single use plastic consumption. She began making small changes at home which seemed to have a ripple effect when she told her friends and family. One problem she kept coming across when ordering products was they were arriving in huge amounts of plastic wrap and packaging. She was horrified. She was buying eco friendly products but they were contributing to the problem. And so Green Island was born.

Sheenagh 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. She wanted to package those products in a sustainable way, which means you won’t see any plastic in Green Island's packaging.

Sheenagh feels she still has a long way to go on her plastic-free journey. She believes we are all forever students. One major thing her yoga course taught her is that when people come together with a common passion for something, amazing things can happen!
