Green Elephant


If you haven’t heard of Green Elephant yet,  prepare to be enlightened! An online marketplace based in the Bay of Plenty, with an exceptionally well curated range of healthy, ethical, and sustainable products – these folks have it all covered! After researching alternative, natural products for their own personal use, they soon discovered a raft of NZ companies with incredible stuff to offer. Then came the realisation that these things should be easier to find and shop for, and so Green Elephant was born. We love this conception story, because it is pretty much identical to that of this blog! Twinsies.

You will find everything you need for inside and outside your home, including health and beauty, food, clothing, and even goodies for the non-human family members! As if they didn’t already sound amazing, they also stock some of Use Good Stuff’s all time favourites – Ethique, Pouch Products, The Green Collective and Pip Pottage Designs.

My favourite thing about this website is their impossibly helpful badge system. These adorable little icons sit on on every product page, giving you a quick summary of the item you are looking at so you can be sure that it ticks whatever boxes are important to you. The badges indicate which products are fair-trade, cruelty free, water and forest friendly, sustainably packaged, and a whole bunch of other good stuff.

Their blog is also 100% worth checking out – it is a real hive for handy info and tips! Gillian will be sharing some of her blog content with Use Good Stuff from time-to-time, so expect to see more from Green Elephant around here in the future!

Be sure to check out Green Elephant on Facebook, too! Happy shopping everyone, welcome to the marketplace 🙂
