Eco Christmas: The General Store

If you’re into conscious consuming – and aren’t we all – you’ll feel right at home browsing The General Store’s Christmas collection.

Wondered where those plastic bags go, the ones we’re all trying to reduce the usage of? We found Blue Q which is right on point, repurposing plastic to make groovy shopper bags that are tough; one percent of sales go to support environmental initiatives around the globe.

We also spied bamboo plates, handmade soaps – good for planet and body – candles, eco cups and reusable lunch boxes.
And then there’s the cheeky, fun stocking fillers that this store is known for! Good to know click and collect is available on the website for convenient browsing.

There is also the new Afterpay payment option. Download the app and then it’s so easy to pay by four instalments, available at checkout in-store and online.
