We’ve always packed groceries into boxes recycled from the supermarket. We then take the box back to the supermarket. With shops an hour round trip away we bottle, soup, freeze whenever things are in season and at their best.
Hand me down clothes are second nature and it has always been instilled to buy once, buy well in regards to everything on the farm and in the house.
So in turn the small life lessons learnt in childhood I’ve tried to carry through as much as possible into the business.
We re use all the boxes, (apologies to wholesalers how rough they can look arriving into stores. After sitting in customs docks for weeks they don’t always look so pretty!)
We try to use reusable online wrapping by using pretty real ribbons that can be worn in the hair or hopefully kept and appreciated by our clients for more present giving.
Gardening is as good for the soul as it is for the planet so every season our gift with purchase is a packet of seeds, to encourage people to get back to nature.
We donate all our inspiration pieces, samples and excess stock to ‘Dulcies Vintage Van’ a wonderful old vintage bus that travels S.A with all proceeds going to the Hutt Street Centre for disadvantaged.
