Who We Are
Green Grow Club (GGC) is a plastic-free, cruelty-free, climate-friendly and community-driven learning hub and multi-vendor marketplace, offering a range of products that meet the highest standards of ‘planet and people care’. We are a community dedicated to positive change, and we aim together to support each other. With so many like-minded individuals and companies we strive to inspire, improve and communicate with one another, make informed choices and share the challenges on the journey towards a kinder, more compassionate world which benefits all life. We have created a space for this community engagement called the GGC Plaza - Learning Hub. If you think you are one of us, do please join our vibrant community. You are most welcome!
Our vision is a global community where ethical production and consumption honours the interconnected web of life and ensures a healthy world for all. Green Grow Club supports this through a platform which helps producers and consumers to make choices which are life-affirming, and which is easy and accessible to everyone.
Green Grow Club Eco-Vendor Products
We are opening this community door to a wide range of amazing products which meet the criteria of being sustainable, ethical, up-cycled or recycled, single-plastic free, organic, vegan, chemical free, cruelty free and fairtrade.
At Green Grow Club our values and ethics are of paramount importance. Everything is interconnected and for the human species to flourish every decision we make must take into account its effect on the larger ecology of life on the planet.
We love and appreciate producers and consumers who choose to act with integrity, honesty, fairness, kindness, and with an appreciation of the larger web of life of which we are part.
As a minimum we ask all vendors to commit to our GGC ethos:
- plastic-free products, packaging and shipping
- cruelty-free processes of production
At Green Grow Club we aim to be transparent in all our dealings, and as a community of practice, we expect our vendors to also be honest about their products and operations.
The story of Green Grow Club is deeply rooted in decades of sustainability and circular economy advisory, concrete practices, and a desire to bring that knowledge and experience to smaller companies and individuals who want to understand what sustainability truly means, and to use that knowledge to create thriving businesses which do not compromise people or planet.
For twenty years the founders, Izzy & Iain, have been providing a wide range of sustainable education opportunities from the Far East, India and America to Scotland's islands, cities, housing schemes, schools and farms. With years of consultancy experience and a large list of awards, they felt well positioned to advise small companies and businesses keen to do more to reduce their environmental impact.
Yet in their daily lives, committed to living sustainably and being conscious consumers, Izzy and Iain were continually disheartened and frustrated by the lack of clarity, consistency and accountability in food and household products which claimed to be eco-friendly and socially responsible.
This frustration sparked the idea to create a community, bringing like-minded producers and consumers together in the Green Grow Club, an open, plastic-free, cruelty-free, climate-friendly and community-driven multi-vendor marketplace. By introducing a clear, consistent standard of social and ecological sustainability for all vendors on the platform, conscious consumers can vote with their money, knowing without a doubt that they are supporting truly sustainable and ethical businesses.
We have huge power as consumers to decide which products, businesses and industries survive. By making it easy for consumers to make planet and people-friendly choices when they shop, Green Grow Club supports the transformation of our world.
