    About Life bannerHi Aboutlife

    Aboutlife is a wholefood natural marketplace committed to being your one stop shop for wholefood nutrition, organic produce and natural products. Everything in our stores is good for your health plus the environment too. We stock the widest range, with often the best prices, of organic fruit and vegetables in Sydney, a wide range of organic pantry staples regularly price checked to be the cheapest in Sydney (our Good Stuff For Less Range) plus a full grocery with shelves stocked full of natural and safe food and household products. Our body wellness bars range natural and plant based, body and beauty care and many herbs and tinctures administered by our Wellness Experts team. In addition each of our stores has a wholefoods café serving a range of wholefood meals, smoothies, sugar free treats all packed with super foods and our 100% organic coffee is pretty great too.

    Problem

    There’s too many to list, the over fishing of the oceans, animal welfare and degradation of seed sovereignty are particularly distressing. The labelling of GMO seeds and the problems many farmers face overseas with contamination would be particularly troubling if it happened to the Australian food industry on the same scale.

    Hope

    For more people to buy organic produce. As more consumers choose to buy organic then more farmers will choose to grow organic, it will become cheaper and easier for people to access and so encourage more people to live organic. This will improve their health plus the biodiversity of Australia’s soil whilst supports our local farming industry and protects our food for future generations.

    Proud

    Our stores are very symbiotic in order to reduce waste and we have many policies in place to avoid food waste wherever possible which are followed closely by all members of the team. Whether it’s excess produce from the floor being returned to the kitchen and used in salads for our café, our organic meat is often priced at 50% off so we know it will sell rather than see it go to waste and our using BioCups for all drinks from the café we try to make all our practices as sustainable as possible. We even implemented a policy this year to bag our used organic coffee grounds as these are good fertiliser for certain plants and all our stores have bags for customers to take away at our doors.
