Wholefoods

Sustainability

We’d love to be a source of inspiration for the adoption of a planet-friendly lifestyle. That’s why the products we stock support local, environmentally-responsible and ethically-minded businesses.

Our shop enables customers to adopt the 3Rs: Reduce (buy only the quantity needed, free of wasteful packaging), Re-use (bring in and refill jars or make use of our jar recyclery) and Recycle (waste collection bins ensure responsible disposal of hard-to-recycle materials).

Sustainability Initiatives

We offer Green Caffeen reusable cups to discourage the use of single-use takeaway coffee cups. Just download the app to get started, it’s free!

We are a Responsible Café, meaning every time you BYO coffee cup, we knock $0.50 off your drink!

We collect and responsibly recycle:

  • Electronic Waste
  • Batteries
  • Oral Care Packaging
  • Dish & Air Care Packaging
  • Writing Instruments
  • Plastic Lids
  • Used Clothing & Shoes

We are a REFILL Canberra Location, meaning you can refill your water bottles in our shop anytime and at no cost.

 

Accreditations

Our accreditation with Healthier Choices Canberra means you can count on us for healthy, family-friendly meal options you feel good about.

RSPCA’s Choose Wisely celebrates our use of free-range, pasture-fed, hormone-free animal proteins.

Since opening, we have been accredited with ActSmart Business Recycling, which recognises our efforts in reducing waste to landfill, year after year.

 

Social Initiatives

All clothing items we collect are sold following a ‘Pay-what-you-want’ system.  All the money collected is donated to the local charity and not-for-profit GIVIT.
