Green Monkeys is now taking orders again! We have arranged contactless delivery which takes a little longer than usual (4-5 working days) but helps protect all our health. We hope you will continue to support us in these uncertain times - every order means so much to us. Take care and keep safe. Lizzie & Jo xx
At Green Monkeys, we are passionate about reading to our children and gently talking to them about how to positively care for their world. With World Book Week being upon us, what better time to share with you our favourite eco books for young children. Hopefully these books will inspire your little one to join the voices of our youth who are changing the world not just through climate marches and campaigning but very importantly, through their own lifestyle changes.
