Buy in Bulk
One of our Co-Founder, Stine's, favourite tips – buy in bulk.
Buying in bulk is a great way to save on dollars, and waste. If you have the storage available, bulk deals often cost considerably less than buying one-time use products.
It’s also a great excuse to Marie-Kondo your pantry with reusable storage jars and top up with your bulk buy whenever you notice your stock getting low. You’ll save having to throw away individual single-use plastic packaging too.
If a well organised, labelled, and sustainable pantry doesn’t bring you joy, we’re not sure what will!
Keep Track of your Carbon Footprint
A great way to raise your awareness about your impact on the environment is to track your carbon footprint. Why not start from 1 Jan and see first-hand your environmental impact for the year?
Maybe you don’t make a change right away, but we’re willing to bet that when you notice what everyday activities are contributing to your footprint, change will come naturally.
Another way to keep your footprint low is by supporting companies who are proactive in this space too. Choose to support brands who are genuine and practice transparency around their environmental impact, such as Ethique or Aotearoad.
At Good Change, we have a range of initiatives that support our natural environment and mean that your purchase with us goes further. That includes providing clean water for a family in Cambodia for every product we sell, providing carbon negative shipping on all online orders and more.

Invest in Reusable Drinkware
This one’s a given. If you aren’t using a reusable drink bottle at least, this is possibly the easiest and one of the most impactful Good Change’s you can make.
Our advice here – invest in a bottle you really love, even if the price is a little higher. That way it’ll become a staple at home, at the gym and out and about.
Why not go one step further and add a coffee cup to your reusable drinkware collection? Our personal favourites are made by Fressko and Frank Green!
