We encourage you to join our community events, workshops, and webinars, where you will have the opportunity to learn from experts, engage in meaningful conversations, and exchange ideas.

At the good tonic, we are always looking at ways to reduce our impact on nature, helping to inform and create conversation on what's 'hot' in the sustainability world, including, are words like Sustainability and Circular being used with no real connection to what they mean?

One area we are promoting is Soft Plastic recycling, Should soft plastics be collected in kerbside recycling?

For many people, plastic waste like chip packets, bread bags and thin plastic packaging get put in the too hard basket, i.e. the rubbish bin. 

It is estimated that thousands of tonnes of soft plastics are sent to landfill each year, so if it was an option to put them in with kerbside recycling would that get more people onboard?

Right now, keen recyclers need to drop off their soft plastic stations at supermarkets or the Warehouse, otherwise it goes to the tip. 

While the number of people who do recycle their soft plastics is growing, Lyn Mayes from industry group the Packaging Forum admitted the current system would never be completely effective.

It would be great to create a demand for this, as with most things, a tipping point is reach where it becomes viable for industry to step in and get involved, wouldn't it be great to see this in Aotearoa New Zealand!


These are some of the styles and brands we are loving in store, we hope you love them as much as we do!
