Number 3


We are not talking living in the moment or navel gazing – what typically springs to mind when thinking “mindfulness”.
It `s all about being conscious while you shop. Huh? As you whizz down the supermarket aisle, you are overwhelmed by noise, colour and choice which can lead to poor decisions – refer to Number 2.

Some products are bought out of habit or after seeing them on telly or social media. However these products may not be appropriate for your lifestyle or domestic situation. Or are simply very cleverly marketed to make you believe that all your problems will be solved if you buy them.

By being mindful/ conscious while you shop in Bamboo Turtle you are able to make informed, realistic choices based on your lifesyle.
You can ask yourself :

  • Do I really need this product ?
  • Is there something in my cupboards which can do the same thing?
  • Am I buying into the hype?
