About us

Green Coast is a renewable energy and green living website focused on helping you live a more sustainable life

The fact you’re here reading this means you are interested in creating a better future for our planet.

But how exactly do you go about doing this, and how much difference can you actually make?

Renewable energy and green living is far more complex than it needs to be. The whole industry is filled with acronyms, buzzwords and don’t get us started on the small but loud radical crowd of extremists who give environmentalists a bad name.

Green Coast is all about helping you make small but meaningful decisions to live a more sustainable life.

Whether that’s how you can take advantage of renewable energy to help cut down on emissions, or simple tips to live a zero waste life cycle.

It doesn’t matter if you are just interested in cutting down on deposable coffee cups, or you’ve been using hemp toilet paper for the last 20 years, welcome to Green Coast.
