Happiness in a Heatwave

Happiness in a Handbasket is a new guide to buying local. Well-researched and well-written, everything from food, appliances, clothes, even skateboards, gets a mention. Although books aren’t our main focus, we have a growing selection of books that fit our ethos, and they usually beat bookshop prices too, so do take a look down in the book section.

With the scorching heat in Cape Town this week, summer is well and truly here. If you collect from a collection point, remember that many of the items that were fine in the boxes in winter (such as raw chocolates) sit in the fridges or cooler boxes in summer, so please remember to take them. Your order confirmation will indicate which items are in cold, and your box will have a sticker on to remind you to look for any cold (or large, external) items stored separately.

Have a great week,
the Ethical team
