If you've walked past our shop window you may have glanced and thought 'Wow! What a pretty window display' with its beautiful underwater theme, even complete with Mermaids! But look a little closer and deeper. There's a very important message in amongst its beauty; a message that we all need to take heed of for our present and future...
The fight to minimize landfill and ocean waste is a huge one, to reduce the devastating impact caused by single-use and poor quality products on our environment. With this in mind, we have embraced the term 'Buy Once, Buy Well' and brought to you just a handful of products in this blog that fit this bill, or help the fight in other ways. With their outstanding features and exceptional qualities, it makes sense to 'Buy Once, Buy Well', as opposed to the false economy of buying poor quality products and having to replace them regularly.
Here we showcase some of our favourites...
