....And, we're back! Yes, at last The Little Green Van is back doing pop-ups...
'HONEST TOIL' EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL FROM GREECE...is now in stock as a refill (previously I stocked the 500ml bottles but it was so popular I've gone for the 20 litre option!) ... pressed solely from koroneiki olives, it's unblended, unfiltered, and properly cold-pressed. An acidity of 0.3% means it's among the purest extra virgin olive oils available. Hand-picked, sustainably produced and distributed, Honest Toil extra virgin olive oil is as pure as it gets.
NEW DAY AND LOCATION IN ROWLAND'S CASTLE...Outside the Bumblebee Cafe (opposite Londis) every Monday afternoon between 2pm and 5pm
....and also, on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month we'll be in Westbourne, in the WOW (Westbourne Osteopathic Wellness) clinic car park (a few yards south of the Village Hall) between 10am and 1pm.

NEW ONLINE SHOP...Making it easier for you to order from home - you can now see and read all about each product - and then I can deliver them direct to your door.
NEW IN STOCK... Beeswax wraps! And not just any beeswax wraps, local beeswax wraps! Made by Anna at The Eternal Maker (the fab fabric and crafts shop) in Chichester, who has thousands of beautiful fabrics to choose from, and wax from 'my' honey producer Lovedean Honey. I am very pleased with them. Available in 50cm sq and 35cm sq - they're in the shop now.
YAY!! The Little Green Van now stocks SESI products!! I wanted to use them from Day One but lockdown and other issues conspired against it - but now I have their washing up liquid, laundry liquid, body wash, hand and body lotion, rinse aid (hard water formula) and via them, Cotswold Gold rapeseed oil... I'm thrilled about this - why??
SESI are super ethical - they're (an amazing) family based, social enterprise based in Oxford - they started in 2006 from their shed - now SESI, stockists and customers are refilling about 1 MILLION bottles a year with SESI detergents!rgent!!!
Their products are excellent quality, vegan, cruelty free, biodegradable - and gentle.
And what I love most of all... they take all their containers back, wash them and reuse them! Not ground up, not sent to to the Far East for recycling, not land-filled: just washed and reused. SESI are currently unique for doing this (don't worry, all the BioD containers I have used have all gone off to new, useful lives, but boy, it's great to not have to worry about that anymore).
To read all about SESI have a look at their website www.sesi.org.uk.
PLUS...SESI work with Cole & Co, a Welsh company who make lovely toiletries with great care - no animal testing, essential oils, no superfluous ingredients - so I have some of their products in stock too now.
