Bananas and BEYOND!

Entering this year celebrations for Fairtrade Fortnight (24th feb – 8th March), we’re going bananas at Eighth Day vegan & veggie co-operative, literally!

As well as free samples & tasters nearly everyday, we’ll be adopting a yellow uniform for the day on Thursday 5th March, we’re drawing attention to all the ways to choose fair trade, from our eco cotton buds to vegan wine and speciality coffee from our local friends.

We’re promising a Fairtrade banana to anyone who can correctly identify our Fairtrade products, as well as serving up recipes straight from our kitchen, with tasters of course, that use a multitude of our Fairtrade products, and everyone is welcome to join the fun – extra points for your brightest yellow t-shirts!

Always a very popular sampling session with customers whenever they occur, we love these organic dairy free, plant based chocolate bars, chocolate covered raw fruits and nuts. The chocolatiers at The Raw Chocolate Company grind their ingredients 3 times longer than most chocolate companies which gives the chocolate a silky smooth texture and combined with a delicious array of flavours has made these a real favourite amongst our customers.

Veganuary Health Feature

Keep yourself focussed and beat the Winter Blues with the help of Brainfeed.

Keep Focussed – Try Brainfeed Choline, December is hectic, parties, shopping, deadlines at work as the holidays approach so keep yourself from flagging with Choline, an isolated nutrient and the building block to acetylcholine; a chemical in the brain which is released when conducting cognitive tasks such as memory retention or learning.

To help with Winter Blues – Try Brainfeed Serotonin 5HTP a natural isolated nutrient extracted from the griffonia seed and it is the building block to your feel good chemical messenger serotonin (5-ht). Serotonin plays a vital role in our biochemistry because it regulates mood, anxiety, appetite & sleep.
