About Us

I’m Keith, 35 and nature lover all my life. I’ve been living on the small Spanish Island of Menorca for about a decade now. I’m originally from Ireland which is where my love of the outdoors began, exploring my natural surroundings ( Mountains, forests, rivers, and the Sea). Close to nature is where I feel most at peace 🙂 🙂

I’m a health nut and I’ve been a professional gardener for many years, last year I needed spinal fusion and I could no longer continue with that line of work. Tidying the beaches as my rehab kept me sane.

It upsets me to see so much plastic EVERYWHERE. We live in a time of excess and I don’t see why that absolves us of our duty to look after our home, our Planet. 

That’s when Green Newbie came along. With education, knowledge will be spread. Our hope is that we encourage you to refuse single-use plastics, reduce your plastic usage and ALWAYS recycle all you can. We can all help our environment and make informed choices with our habits in regards to greener living.

Ideally, as you embark on your journey, you will find many of your zero waste essentials at your local Goodwill, second-hand or vintage store. When you can’t find what you’re looking for, we’d be proud to serve you.
