…philosophy and a way of life

Shopping with a conscience – simply

Loose spinach in a basket

……………..our philosophy is to stock food and other products which you can rely on.  You don’t have to worry about whether all the fresh fruit and vegetables are organic – we wouldn’t offer them if they weren’t.  You don’t have to check the labels on all the cleaning products – they wouldn’t be on the shelves if they weren’t the most ecological products available.  You don’t have to worry about over-packaging – our packaging is minimal.

No box. Just a bag. Full.

Some of the salads and greens are in plastic bags just to keep them fresh longer, but the other fruit and vegetables are all loose.  We offer paper bags – but you don’t have to use them!

Bring your own empty bottle for Ecover washing up liquid, laundry liquid and fabric conditioner and pay a lower price by the litre.

Re-fill your bottles up to 50 times

If a Fairtrade version of a product is available – we’ll be selling it.

Fairtrade Easter eggs

Organic chocolate is better for the eater, the cocoa grower (because he/she is not exposed to chemicals) and the environment.

Fairtrade chocolate is better financially for the grower. Divine is the only Fairtrade chocolate company which is 45% owned by the farmers. Fairtrade ensures farmers receive a better deal for their cocoa and additional income to invest in their community, but company ownership gives farmers a share of Divine’s profits and a stronger voice in the cocoa industry.
