Welcome to greenisthecolour.co.uk, run by a small group of like minded people who have one thing in common, we care about the environment and the world in which we and you live. We try to make sense of climate change and what’s happening to our changing planet and how we, as individuals, can do our bit to help stop the situation from getting worse.
We have no affiliation to any political party, we are fiercely independent and do not accept donations from large companies. We are funded by selective affiliate marketing which you will see as a small number of adverts from selective brands that compliment our thoughts.

National Geographic describes ‘Climate Change’ as a long-term shift in global or regional climate patterns. Often climate change refers specifically to the rise in global temperatures from the mid-20th century to present.
Greenpeace was founded by a small group of concerned individuals, who set sail to Amchitka island off the coast of Alaska to try and stop a US nuclear weapons test. Founded in 1971, they do an amazing job in educating the world on the huge issues facing our planet.
We’re not here replicate what Greenpeace are already doing so well, we’re here to try to help people do a little bit of something every day that makes a collective difference to our world. Us included, this website is being tweaked each day to try to reduce it’s Carbon Footprint, yes, websites do have one and if your interested this is what we’re doing.
We’re not here to tell you not to go on holiday and not to have nice weekends away. All we’re hoping to do is show people how you can become greener in your everyday life, without even having to think too much about it once you’ve made some simple changes.
How can we not want to help when we see images like the one above and worse and read about the 8 million pieces of plastic that enter the ocean every single day, and that 1 in 3 fish caught for human consumption contains plastic.
Enough is enough.
You can become a part of the solution by ditching single use plastic packaging in your home. Switching to refills in reusable and recyclable packaging eliminates the plastic waste that comes out of your home.
