Our Store

 

OUR VALUES

 

Cariad is founded on strong ethical principles, so the products we stock will always be:

  • Plant-based (suitable for everyone including vegans)
  • Organic, where possible
  • Cruelty free
  • Responsibly sourced
  • Ethically produced
  • Affordably priced

 

FRESH ORGANIC PRODUCE AT AFFORDABLE PRICES

 

Every Wednesday, we have a delivery of seasonal organic produce from Goldhill Organic Farm, at Child Okeford, just 5 miles away. Because we believe in keeping food miles low where possible, you won't find any organic avocados, bananas or other imported fruit or veggies - just delicious, locally grown produce that's been picked the day it is delivered to us.  Buying direct from a local producer allows us to keep prices very affordable - most of our organic produce is cheaper than many supermarkets!

 

ZERO WASTE

 

We are passionate about sustainability and want to encourage the reduction of packaging waste, especially plastics, therefore: 

 

  • Over 90 wholefoods, herbs, spices and botanicals are sold loose, so you can buy only what you need and save money and packaging waste. We encourage you to bring your own containers to refill or you can use our fully biodegradable bags.
  • We have a refill station for Bio-D ecofriendly household products.  Refill any container or other brand's bottle with laundry liquid, fabric conditioner, washing up liquid, toilet cleaner, multi-surface cleaner or hand wash.
  • We sell refills of Faith in Nature shampoo, conditioner and shower/bath foam.
  • We also stock deodorants, baby balms, toothpaste, shampoo bars, soaps, eco candles and greetings cards that are not only made with natural ingredients but are also free of any plastic packaging.
  • In store, you will also find reusable bamboo coffee cups, toothbrushes and reusable straws, wheat straws, plastic free cotton buds, cotton shopping bags etc.
  • We actively try to source branded products in plastic-free packaging where possible.

SUPPORTING LOCAL

 

We firmly believe in supporting local business so you will find products from some of the many wonderful producers we have around Dorset and its borders, such as Meat Free Martha's delicious vegan savouries, Applebottom Whoelfoods organic bread, Liberty Loves raw and gluten free tarts, Stoates organic flour and A Jar Of homemade preserves, to name but a few.  Just look for the yellow Dorset county flag stickers all around the store.

 

AFFORDABLE SHOPPING

 

We believe that everyone should have access to organic, healthy foods, quality supplements and natural remedies, so we keep our prices as low as possible. For example, our wholefoods, herbs, spices are up to 60% cheaper than the leading high street health foods chain and our fresh organic vegetables are cheaper than some supermarkets.  We promise we will always keep prices as low as possible.
