Step inside the stunning GoodFor store at The Welder and you’re bound to feel like a kid in a candy store. This light filled corner store is filled to the brim with wholefood goodness waiting for you to create that package-free-pantry your friends will envy (and hopefully want to replicate too).

Turn up with vessels of any kind (or use the supplied paper bags) and get ready to scoop, pour and fill them to your heart’s content. The aisles here are heaving with all your pantry essentials from flour and spices to superfoods and beans, coffee and tea to dishwashing liquid and everything in between. Pretty much anything and everything you could need in a well-stocked pantry are available at GoodFor without any unnecessary packaging.

It’s really that easy to change your pantry-filling ways to something more sustainable. And if it all seems a bit overwhelming, fear not, the friendly folk behind the counter at GoodFor are more than happy to walk you through the process.

To top it all off, these guys have decided to take this planet-saving action one step further – for every purchase made in store, they plant a tree.

Making the choice to stuff your jars here really is good for our planet. So hop on your bike, head to Welles St and make a difference while enjoying a fulfilling (pun intended) shopping experience.
