We are an independent, family-run business on the main high street in Bawtry, stocking a variety of good quality health supplements, skin and body care, cleaning products and health foods. We have always veered towards natural and green living, we took over Bawtry Natural Health in 2015 and we love it. We love to help people and enjoy offering advice in the shop and chatting to our customers. We have a great team of therapists who work upstairs in the therapy centre, all helping to contribute to our customers’ health and well-being no matter what health challenges they may have.
We care about people, the environment and animals. We work with suppliers who are constantly taking steps to supply products that are as natural as possible while limiting their impact on the environment. Our wholesalers also take steps to limit their impact, updating the packaging they send our orders in and by supplying their own-brand dried fruit and nuts, grains and pulses in compostable pre-packaging.
We stock a variety of products that are plastic-free alternatives to everyday products, such as shampoo bars, plastic-free cloths, sponges, body loofahs, recycled bin bags, bamboo toilet roll and much more. We encourage our customers to make small changes that are affordable and easy to do, and do so ourselves.
Viridian Nutrition, one of our main suppliers of vitamins and minerals, are now a carbon-neutral company, palm oil-free, use no fillers and binders, use organic where possible and have some vegan products. They also encourage return of their glass packaging offering a 25p refund for each container returned.
Dr Hauschka is currently our most popular skincare brand. They have been around for 50 years with a certification called COSMOS that denotes they use 100% natural ingredients and they use a very large percentage of organic ingredients. The company also have a bio-dynamic farm (an organic, sustainable, holistic approach to farming) where they grow some of their ingredients. We are currently deciding on a new addition to our skincare range that is natural, organic, vegan, plastic-free and effective.
Our latest addition is a refill station. Customers can purchase Bio-D, Faith in Nature and Ecoleaf products in bottles, made using 100% post consumer plastic, and then come back to refill them using our pump dispensers. This seems to be the most popular way so far, customers can, however, bring any suitable container and fill it up with laundry liquid, fabric softener, washing-up liquid, multi-surface cleaner, toilet cleaner, shampoo, conditioner, body-wash or deodorant. Refill prices are cheaper than the pre-packaged items and you get a great sense of satisfaction that one less plastic container is going to landfill or polluting the ocean.
As a small independent business we are very grateful to our customers for their continued support and we are also very grateful to our new customers who have been looking for ways to reduce the amount of plastic they use.
