I have always had an interest in the outdoors and love to spend my free time walking in the countryside and enjoying our beautiful countryside.
Over the years I have found it becoming increasingly common to find litter when out on my walks, often at the sides of roads or on public footpaths. This concerned me and started me on my journey to a more Eco-Friendly life.
It started with just small changes, using glass jars to take my lunch to work rather than buying pre-made food, which would inevitably come in plastic packaging, to installing energy-saving lights around my home.
Recently I started looking to make further changes to my daily routine, to try and replace some of my day-to-day items with alternatives that are better for the environment. I found this surprisingly difficult, often products were much more expensive, only available in larger stores (meaning I would have to drive to get them, going against the whole point of my change) or in many cases shops just didn’t have an alternative.
I knew the demand was there, people are sharing stories on social media constantly showing that they are more aware than ever of the changes we need to make. I wanted to set up Green Future Box to make this lifestyle more achievable, giving people the chance to try products they may not have heard of, seen before, wanted to try due to the cost or even knew were available.
My goal is to make it easy for you to make a change, one box at a time.
