We don’t think health should be a luxury item. So we searched the world for the best health food and eco-friendly products to give you 25-50% off the retail price.
Our health-conscious team consists of nutritionists, yogis and fitness nuts.
The Store is not just a business. It is a group of people who truly believe that everyone should have access to affordable, high quality nutrition. Our products are organic, vegan and environmentally friendly, wherever possible.
We believe we all have a responsibility to care for the environment. Unlike other retailers in Hong Kong we use recycled paper bags, we up-cycle our packaging and ship by sea to reduce our carbon footprint.
