House of Health are incredibly passionate in promoting the movement of banning single use plastic in South Australia. At the beginning of 2020 the store was officially certified as plastic free, becoming only the second business in South Australia. Owners Rob and Chester have employed many ways to eliminate single use plastic including:
- Encouraging customers to bring in their own reusable containers to refill bulk foods and their essential oils, honey, tahini and more.
- Providing plastic free alternatives to common place plastic items such as compostable bags, glass bottles and jars.
- Return systems in place for bulk produce to ensure the stock they receive is plastic free. For example, the suppliers will drop off bulk containers of stock then pick them up to be refilled again.
