- We also reuse: salad tubs, honey jars, olive oil bottles, the deodorant jars, veggie stock jars, dishwashing liquid bottles, laundry liquid bottles, ginger beer bottles – we ask that these are washed prior to return.
- Please know: We would never buy polysterene! We take the time to repurpose polysterene boxes we collect from large supermarket landfill piles.
Certification and Bulk Orders
ORGANIC CERTIFICATION – Please understand it is not viable for many of our small producers to obtain organic certification for their produce. Even so, we love to support them, as we know they are growing ethical chemical free produce and it’s often picked fresh for us on a Monday morning!
The only exception to the ‘chemical free’ rule is the amazing avocados. Farmer Tim Kemp uses minimal chemicals (but we believe it’s better to have local, than obtaining certified organic avocados from a few hundred kilometres away). Any fresh produce Not Certified Organic will be labelled ‘NCO’.
Another exception to the rule is sunflower seeds – We could source organic ones from China, but we choose conventional sunflower seeds from Australia (as Australian organic sunflowers seeds are not available yet).
We have highlighted Australian and Local products, with the exception of the fruit and vegetables (as these will ALWAYS BE 100% AUSTRALIAN).
BULK ORDERS – Yes, we can order items in Bulk for you (at a considerable discount). Let us know what you need and we will get you a price. NOTE: On most occasions, these items need to be picked up.
