We welcome Dope to the neighbourhood

Sustainability Trust

There's a new plant-based smell lingering down Forresters Lane. Some say it's a bit nutty, a bit sweet, maybe just a bit spicy.

It smells 100% plant-based. Got the munchies? We sure do.

Yup! We're delighted to share that we've welcomed Dope to Forresters Lane.

Let's talk about Dope.

Their 100% plant-based coffees, smoothies, treats and eats are so delish you'll be wondering why you hadn't had Dope before.

Come say hi to Sian and Sean they're open from 7.30 am to 2 pm Tuesday to Friday.

Don't forget to BYO cup! You'll need one if you want to take your coffee away.

Spotlight on Foreshore Jewellers

Three friends - Hana, Denise and Celia - are the talented trio that makes up Foreshore Jewellers. Their journey started the first night at night class - where they realised that they had a real knack for making jewellery. Once hooked (some pun intended) they just started making jewellery out of various things around them. They recycle metal, rescue copper, and integrate bits and pieces they find along the beach.

Each piece is every bit as unique as the person who made it.

For those 'can't beat Wellington on a good day' days, you 100% need Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Seasick Sunscreen Co.

Made right here in NZ by Natalie - a self-professed redhead sun worshiper with a love for surfing, hiking and diving and a passion for conservation

Isabelle our FOH manager absolutely swears by it.

Get ready for summer and have a chat with Nat at the same time

Meet Tallulah. We first crossed paths with Tallulah when she was working on a passion project: Eco Made Easy, a no-frills guide to sustainable student living in Wellington. After swiftly spotting her talent, we nabbed her to design the amazing illustrations on our website

An illustrator and textile designer with a passion for sustainability, Tallulah also hand makes colourful and playful creations and prints.

The best words of advice she's ever received is: "leap before you're ready".. and based on what she's achieved, it's safe to say that she listened.

Come meet Tallulah at our Sustainable Santa Market. But don't poach her cause we will cry.
