About me

WHO

Hi, I’m Jodie. I’m 34 and I live in Greater Manchester in the UK with my family and our dog, Pippa.

WHY

When you find something that is amazing and made such a positive difference on you and your family’s life you naturally want to shout it from the roof tops.

There’s a misconception that ‘eco’ and ‘green’ living is expensive, inaccessible, difficult, as well as people just living on autopilot (according to a survey I developed in the planning process!) sticking with what they know, in a ‘if it’s not broken don’t fix it mindset’ but that’s the problem – the Planet is breaking.

I wanted to show ‘natural’ alternatives were just as good if not better, especially when it comes to cleaning products and personal care products like shampoo.

It’s hard to break the habit of a lifetime and I totally get it! 99% of the time someone decides to give green a chance they are amazed and they stick with it…. Don’t just take my word for it…

“When I used to clean my bathroom I was really struggling with the smell and breathing. I don’t have any of those problems anymore!”

“Absolutely brilliant, really easy to use. It’s really smooth and took hardly any brushing. I’m a convert!”

WHEN

After being diagnosed with anxiety and depression I wanted to implement changes into my daily routine to feel better.

I fell upon ‘slow living’ and the benefits for our health, mental health and the Planets health as it encourages to live more mindfully, to think about what were doing rather than living on autopilot.

Making small changes made such a huge impact on our lives. Reducing the amounts of plastic, chemicals and toxins from our home and choosing natural and sustainable alternatives led to a more eco-friendly lifestyle.

I became so passionate about sharing how much better these alternatives were not just for the planet but for us too.

WHERE

I started setting up stalls at open days, fairs and local markets in the Greater Manchester area, then, Covid-19 hit….

I was furloughed from my part time job and threw myself into creating an online presence for my eco-friendly lifestyle and promoting the swaps we’d made encouraging people to do the same.

During this time, a little seed in my head started growing; How can I overcome the drawbacks of using and choosing environmentally products? We are subscription box fans at home; we’ve had everything from gin to baking, from self care to stationery.

WHAT

What followed was 9 months of early mornings and late nights of stress, happiness, success, frustration, while I researched through website design, google, emails, products, social media, to make sure I could achieve each element from the pros and cons I’d experienced and most importantly, the feedback I’d received.

The Between Green Subscription Box was born. We launched in January 2021 and it keeps getting better and better.

I’d love you to join me on this journey changing the world one box at a time and achieving my dreams of inspiring eco-friendly living for all.

Between Green Boxes Are:

  • LETTERBOX FRIENDLY
  • Say NO to driving to the Post Office in the middle of nowhere, finding a parking space, getting in the queue, etc… All your swaps arrive on your doorstep whether you’re in or out!

    • NO DUPLICATE PRODUCTS

    “Not another one” that’s what I said a few months into most subscription boxes, BUT NO MORE! I have so much to share with you that there are no duplicate products.
