Online Shopping is Greenest … unless you walk! + Voucher Giveaway

by Val Reynolds

Shopping online with a home delivery service is twenty four times ‘greener’ than a car journey to the shops¹

Delivery from Goodness Direct

Delivery from Goodness Direct

Makes sense. One vehicle for lots of addresses, rather than every household burning its own petrol.

Of course, taking the bus is preferential (you have to get out of the house some time) but it can still be more eco-friendly to have your shopping delivered to your home – leaving you more time to do the things you like.

If you shop with Goodness Direct you’ll find even more ways to go green. They have thousands of ethical goods on their shelves, whether it’s organic foods, eco-cleaning products or earth friendly cosmetics.

It’s an Aladdin’s cave of natural products and ethical goodies. There’s fairtrade foods, cruelty free toiletries, natural baby products, organic fruit and veg and special diet foods. It makes shopping a breeze.

So paint each and every day a little more green with GoodnessDirect. Plus, online orders over £35 ordered online are delivered free to anywhere in the UK.
