WEEKEND NOTES: Sunday July 21st 2019

Written By Joseph Jackson 20 Jul 2019

Every Sunday we'll be posting our highlights from the week, as well as all the latest in-store news, and our favourite articles from around the web.

WEEKEND NOTES: Sunday July 21st 2019
School has finished, and now Summer has truly begun! It was so great to see so many of you in the store this week. I’m sitting down to write this after an incredibly busy Saturday - we’ve welcomed so many new faces in store over the last few weeks, due to the ever-increasing popularity of our zero waste section. I hope everyone is enjoying browsing the shelves after they’ve finished their refilling and discovering new and exciting products. I know the world of “health and wellness” can seem daunting if you’ve not delved into it before, but my team and I are always here to help and answer any questions you may have! We’re planning to add dozens of new lines over the Summer so keep your eyes peeled on the shelves as well as our £1 “bargain bin” - topped up with lines that we will be saying goodbye to for now. Here’s what’s new in store this week…
We were amongst the first stores in the U.K to launch Pukka’s newest tea this Friday - Peace. If you love chamomile, you’re going to love this. Pukka’s expert blenders have paired this with spearmint, hemp and ashwagandha (our favourite herb), for a soothing blend that is great for calming the mind and easing anxiety. Every purchase of Peace tea will come with a free Pukka mug while stocks last.
We’ve been having such great weather, and everyone has been stocking up on our freshly-made, plant-based salads and tarts for picnics and lunches this week. This one pictured is a sesame tempeh buddha bowl with a turmeric tahini dressing. The Origins Health & Wellness Bar is open Monday to Saturday, 10am-4pm.
We’re excited to welcome back one of our favourite chocolate ranges to our shelves - Vivani. Available in a range of strengths and flavours, there really is something for everyone. We were sampling the “Chilli” flavour all week on the counter.
We’re featured on the back cover of Vantage Point magazine this week. A huge thank you to our graphic designer George who always captures our vision perfectly. We’re currently designing some new tote bags with him, which we will be handing out in the store very soon! 
Thank you so much for all of the incredible feedback we’ve been receiving about our boxes! Drop us a message if you want us to bag you up a box of fresh produce every week (find more info about them in the menu bar at the top of our page).
