Sustainable Self-Care & Queen Vic Market Sustainable Shopping Tour info

We all deserve an opportunity to kick back, relax and take care of ourselves. But it can be hard with family commitments, work, maintaining a household, and all the climate activism!

The busy day-to-day can often take priority over self-care, sometimes to the point where we don't even have the capacity to nourish our bodies.  In order to keep our health (both physical and mental) in check, it's important that we set aside time for ourselves and slowwwww down.

Read on for some of our favourite ways to honour our health and wellbeing while caring for the planet too including a fab shopping trip at Queen Vic Market.

Get out for a hike with this great sturdy backpack. Once you have finished what it is holding it rolls up into a small pouch that you can clip onto your belt.
What better way to look after yourself than a nice hot cup of tea made with this old school reusable tea infuser.

Treat yourself or a loved one to a new bamboo and organic cotton t-shirt. Super comfy…fabulous cut with a range of beautiful designs including the goanna and dragonfly.

Weekly Inspiration

Grabbing a coffee in Melbourne’s Darebin area, but stuck without your reusable cup? You can simply borrow one! The Wangim Project allows customers to borrow & return reusable takeaway cups to participating cafes. We hope to see other councils adopt this soon.

Meanwhile, you can check out a great range of reusable cups from our store.
