The Good Lyfe is a plastic-free, ethical store in Newquay, selling zero-waste dry foods (including rice, pasta, beans, lentils, herbs and spices), refillable laundry and cleaning liquids, and personal care and homeware products. Customers can bring in their own containers (or purchase reusable jars or cotton bags), fill them up with the product(s) of their choice – only paying for what they need, and not a piece of plastic packaging in sight. We also stock a range of beautiful, ethically sourced home and lifestyle products – enabling customers to be able to shop with a guilt-free conscience.
Founded by two friends, Jaime and Laura (and our families), we had both moved to Cornwall lured by a sense of new sense of calm, stunning coastline and beautiful beaches. And while all those things are true, it was impossible to ignore the enormous amount of plastic packaging littering the streets and beaches.
We’d both been trying to reduce the amount of plastic we were bringing home but shopping for groceries was becoming far more stressful than it should have been. And finding good quality, ethically sourced products threw up the same challenges.
We want the world to be a fairer, kinder place – for us, for our children, for everyone.
Welcome to The Good Lyfe.
