UPDATE: 6th May, 2020
Tonight I prepare to relaunch this website in the middle of Level 3 of New Zealand's pandemic plan. Since the middle of March, I have been in a trading halt due to not being an essential business while New Zealand was going through Level 4.
All of my processes are conducted in strict accordance with Level 3 requirements for health, safety and physical distancing. I am engaging Gold Service Cleaners who specialize in the use of the sanitizing product Zoono which is used to clean all surfaces prior to packaging.
Your order will be packaged in a compostable courier bag and will be left untouched for a minimum of 3 days before the courier collects. I have engaged the services of Courier Post to deliver all orders with a contactless tracked courier service around New Zealand. Please be aware that these new systems and processes may result in a longer time between your order being placed and reaching you. I apologise for any inconvenience this may result in.
If you have any questions or concerns about the safety of your order, please feel free to get in touch with me and I will do my best to help.
These changes will continue for the duration of Level 2 in New Zealand.
MARCH 24: Tonight at midnight New Zealand moves to Level 4 in our Pandemic Plan. This means that all businesses that are not deemed to be an ESSENTIAL SERVICE are ordered to pause trading in an attempt to stem the Covid-19 flood!!
Initially we believed that this did not apply to businesses that operate entirely from home, like me.
But in the past 24 hours that situation has changed, and that’s OK!!
So what that means is that, for at least the next 4 week (until the beginning of May) I will not be dispatching any orders. The reason for this is two-fold: firstly to reduce the risk to our courier services from contamination, and secondly to reduce the risk that your order may inadvertently be contaminated.
You can still place orders for physical product or gift vouchers (I encourage you to do so), however I will not be dispatching physical product until New Zealand reduces back to Level 3 or lower.
This is an unprecedented time and we are literally working with changes on a daily basis. Please follow me on my social channels to get access to live videos and online events, as well as updates on when orders can begin to move again.
So please, be kind and compassionate. Remember to #loveyourbubble and stay home!! Don’t forget how beautiful this world is, and humanity within that! Look after one-another because truly “he waka eke noa” – we are all in this together.
