      Thanks Jon, really appreciate the support. Not an easy time for any retailer and the high street but we are enjoying changing the way we do things and the way we think about things. Please make yourself known when you come in. Justina x

    Fabulous range of products provided now! Exciting to hear about how well things are developing – I have tended to shop organic and wholefood on line but will try to come to you so I can reduce my packaging right down. I’m so impressed by all your efforts and enthusiasm to make this happen

      Hi Penny,
      Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement.
      We are loving changing the shop and are going to develop the zero-waste refill section wall by wall.
      We as you can see have also got this website as a great resource for people, order by mid-day and it will be here the following day by 11am (except weekend orders).
      We have also moved other products not in the refill into either biodegradable / compost packaging or a return the packaging service.
      We look forward to seeing you. Justina x
