As the number of cases of the novel coronavirus increases throughout Australia and in-fact the world, and with the federal government and state officials discouraging face-to-face contact, many local small businesses are fearing an economic impact.
Officials agreed that by limiting large gatherings—as well as encouraging people to wash their hands regularly, to avoid sick people, and to stay at home if they're not feeling well—the spread of COVID-19 could potentially be curbed.
However, with the cancellation of large events, markets & festivals and with patrons choosing to stay home, local businesses will be affected. For many, these events are a families’ sole source of income.
Shop Local – In Person
Many local stores and restaurants are taking extra steps to sanitise their businesses and encouraging customers to practice ‘social distancing’ through methods such as tap & go when paying.
Many physical stores also employ staff who would be absolutely delighted to see customers still coming through the doors for that extra touch of reassurance.
Shop Local - Online
However, for customers who do not want to visit stores or restaurants in person, why not consider the following recommendations:
Where To Shop
There are tons of places to amazing local talents to support. Check out your local markets’ Facebook & Instagram pages for ideas. You can also put in a call to your local Chamber of Commerce to point you in the right direction.
And of course, it would be remiss of us not to give a shout out to the small businesses who support us throughout the year. Check out our incredible stockists, and find one near you, by using our Stockist Locator here.
The coming weeks (possibly months) aren’t going to be fun for small businesses, but with our support they will still be around when all of this settles down.
Look out for each other, be amazing & stay safe.

There are so many skincare products out there, but not all of them contain the best ingredients - and sometimes we don't even know what the ingredients are! One natural, vegan, skincare ingredient you can rely on to be nourishing rather than damaging is Mica. But what is Mica? Where does it come from? And how can we use it to achieve better, brighter skin?
Don't ask me why, but I started searching the health benefits of singing in the shower and it turns out there are quite a few. So here are our favourite reasons to sing in the shower
First of all we want to stress that you DO NOT have to be a good singer, goodness knows I’m not.
Singing makes you happy by releasing endorphins - put on a few songs you love, even if you’re not in the mood, your favourite songs should get you singing and get you pumped for the day. Or help you relax at the end of a long day.
