GOOD SHOPPING GUIDE
I’m all about buying less, but when there’s things that I do need, I’m always keen to support businesses who are trying to do things better.
There’s a world of people and businesses out there doing amazing mahi – but to get you started, here’s a directory of some of my ‘go to’ stores and online suppliers. I’m not affiliated with any of these guys and don’t receive any compensation – they’re just businesses I’ve dealt with and can personally say deserve a high 5!
Regional Shopping Guides
My first choice is always to support local – it saves extra transport impact, supports my community and creates connection. The bloody brilliant news is that the awesome guys from The Rubbish Trip have done all the work for us and created Regional Shopping Guides which cover the whole of New Zealand. Check them out here.
