We have drawn inspiration from stores around the globe to create a simple solution to low waste shopping here in Queenstown. We are proud to partner with local suppliers from all over New Zealand to help bring all your essential weekly items to you in a sustainable, affordable way.
So how does it all work?
Our aim is the make the sustainable choice the easy choice, so we've created a shopping experience in just three simple steps:
Simply complete your weekly shop via our online store
Choose the size and container type you’d like for each item
Pick the delivery method that works best for you
We know what works for one doesn't always work for another, so we have a variety of different container options to cater to everyone
When you do your first shop you can select to purchase a New Leaf container for each item, then next time you shop we simply ask you to leave us the clean containers to swap out for a new one. This way you only need to purchase your container once.
Prefer to use recycled jars? No problem!
We have gathered quite a collection of jars ready to use for anyone not wanting to purchase one. Simply select recycle when choosing your container type and we will select the nearest size to your order with no extra cost. All we ask in return is that you pay it forward by leaving us some of your recycled jars for someone else to use.
If you’ve purchased a New Leaf container on a previous shop, make sure to select swap when choosing your container type and we will swap it for a pre-filled one. Then simply leave the old containers out for us to collect when we deliver your order, or bring them back with you when you collect your order.
If you have the perfect container for your item, simply select Own Container when choosing your container type. These can be anything from Tupperware, old laundry liquid containers, jam jars etc. Then all we ask is that you either drop-off your clean containers to us (this can be at our Arthurs Point warehouse or the Remarkables Markets). Alternatively, if you opt for our Pick Me Up Service, we will collect your containers from your address and refill as per your order. We will then deliver straight back to your door or you pickup from us directly.
Want to buy in bulk?
We currently don’t stock any containers bigger than Extra Large (this is something we’re working on) but if you can provide your own container, we can fill it for you. Simply select Extra Extra Large as the size and Own Container as your container type. You can then either drop your clean containers to us or we will collect and refill for you.
