Making eco-living simple, sensible and sustainable

At the heart of Greenlight is our desire to make a lasting impact on the health of our planet. Through our online eco-living shop and solar energy installations, we aim to offer our customers sustainable living solutions that are affordable, easy to implement, and comfortable.

We believe that every person and business jointly carries the responsibility to care for our planet and we are therefore committed to supporting our customers in living a simple, sensible and sustainable life.

Look out for exciting monthly promotions, competitions and informative blogs, that are set to help you on your “green” journey.

“The actions of every person that strives to live ‘eco-friendlier’ will contribute to a greener, healthier planet.  As an individual, it might look like you are making a small contribution, however, if everyone contributes just a little bit, we can make a huge positive impact on our planet.  Eco-friendly living, and working, should be a necessity for all.” – Greenlight Co-Founder, Alta Nell.

Our journey

Launched in 2016, our initial focus was on bringing affordable solar solutions to individuals and businesses, helping them to reduce their reliance on “dirty energy”. It didn’t take long, however, to realise that there was more that could be done to reduce the environmental footprint of homes and businesses and that a more holistic green product range, that was both easy to use AND financially viable, was needed. Water-saving products and a wide range of LED products were added to our range in 2017, but we knew that more products were still needed for us to truly support our customers on their green journey.

As individuals and businesses have begun to look beyond just solar and water-saving, the need to diversify the product offering, to an all-encompassing approach to sustainable living, has become more and more apparent. In light of this, 2018 has heralded a new era for the company, as we have embraced this need for change and expanded our product offering to include more options within health and beauty, plastic replacement products, as well as outdoor eco-friendly living products. This new approach has also led to the rebranding of the company, under the clean and simple new name of Greenlight.

We look forward to continuing our journey with you, our valued customers, and welcome any feedback that can help us to grow our product range to further support you in living a sustainable and eco-friendly life.

“Although there is sadly much to be concerned about or even depressed about, there is also a lot we can do to decrease our impact on the environment, and we can do it in a sensible way. Through Greenlight we hope to address this by helping individuals and businesses to decrease their environmental footprint without impacting the quality of their lives and their budget.” – Greenlight Co-Founder, Richard Viljoen.
