Op shops often spring to mind when we think about sustainable shopping. We all know the thrill of finding the perfect pair of orange flare pants (that we wouldn’t usually go for) that just so happen to be a perfect fit, cost less and look fabulous on! If you don’t, you’re about to!

Head to Upper Hutt and spend a whole day mooching around 6 amazing op shops, all within walking distance of each other. Better yet, catch the train straight into the city centre.

There are a number of stores in Upper Hutt that are making a massive effort to ensure their practices are kind to the planet and we are proud as punch.

Pick up a set of naked shampoo and conditioner bars from Botanical Beauty on Main Street.

Ekko naturals is not only home to zero-waste, natural and reusable products, they also have a refillery where you can top up your lentils, salt, chickpeas and other food items.

Perhaps you’re into vintage or retro collectables, can you hear Take Me Back calling your name?

Studio One has the latest in Street Hype. Owner Israel Starr curates a select range of vintage, thrifted and locally designed streetwear. With new drops every Thursday, you have to check them out.
