We have searched high and low across the country to put together a wonderful Good-approved goody bag that’s bursting with must-have products for everyone who subscribes to Good Magazine at the Christchurch Go Green Expo at Horncastle Arena from Saturday 8 to Sunday 9 August.
Last year we sold out of these amazing Expo goody bags, so be quick to visit.
A big thank you to the below brands who have partnered with us to bring this goody bag to life!
Kōkako Organic Drinking Chocolate
A treat to be enjoyed hot or cold and made from only two natural ingredients — single source fairtrade organic cocoa and golden cane sugar. This drinking chocolate is suitable for vegans and for coeliacs and contains no nasty fillers, emulsifiers or preservatives. Packaged in home compostable packaging that is made in New Zealand, Kōkako’s Drinking Chocolate is Fairtrade & Biogro Certified. You can find it at these local Christchurch spots; Raeward Fresh Harewood, Countdown at The Palms, Fresh Choice Merivale, or online at kokako.co.nz alongside their certified Fairtrade Organic Specialty Coffee.
Lust Repair Shampoo + Conditioner
Lust Haircare is a luxurious and ethical way to nourish your hair. Its formulations are colour safe and vegan, and incorporate a number of botanics like argan, jojoba and grape seed oil. There are no SLS, sulphates, parabens, or other harsh chemicals. The packaging is made from recycled HDPE plastic which is 100% recyclable. Now that’s what we call Good-approved!
Essano Superfoods Cleanser
The Essano Superfoods cleansers are your daily skin detox. They’re soap-free, gentle enough for everyday use, and refreshing on the skin.
In fact, we love the entire Essano range because it’s natural, cruelty-free and made in New Zealand. You can purchase Essano products at all good supermarkets and pharmacies country-wide, as well as online.
Combining both sustainability and style, Ecoroll delivers premium bamboo toilet paper to your door. You’ll be sold after you try this bamboo roll, and it’s easy to subscribe to ongoing deliveries or to make a one-time purchase here.
Organic India Tulsi Collection
The Organic India Tulsi Variety Collection includes five best selling and restorative tea flavours, including Tulsi Masala Chai Sweet Rose & Tumeric Ginger. All teas include tulsi leaves, which help to reduce stress, relieve inflammation, and provide a rich supply of antioxidants and other nutrients.
Find the Organic India range at all good health food stores and supermarkets.
Munch Organic Food Wraps
If you’re after a great alternative to plastic wrap to keep your food fresh and covered, these award winning beeswax wraps are just what you need! We think the fun designs will liven up your kitchen.
Impressively, Munch has sold over 500,000 beeswax wraps globally. Shop online here.
Living Nature Lipstick
Living Nature’s certified natural lipstick is formulated with all natural ingredients and made in Kerikeri, New Zealand. Regular lipstick wears may consume as much as 1.7 kilos over their lifetime, so the lipstick you choose makes a difference.
You’ll love the luscious and healthy colour on your lips so much you won’t be able to stop smiling!
Dare we say it, these banana chips taste like a proper potato chip: thin, crispy and full of flavour. Using sustainably grown Hom Thong bananas native to Thailand, they are low in sugar and high in prebiotic fibres. We like that the bananas are picked fresh and packed on the same day for extra freshness.
The perfect snack for the whole family! Shop the Banana Joe range here.
Snowberry Smoothing Eye Serum
Good’s digital editor Hemma swears by this peptide-rich smoothing eye serum by Snowberry. Not only is it great for under-eye bags and puffiness, it’ll leave your skin feeling amazing.

Pete’s Beetroot and Manuka Lemonade
You’ll be one of the first in the country to try this beautiful concoction! Pete’s Beetroot and Manuka Lemonade is made from locally sourced apple juice, beetroot juice, lemonade juice and sweetened with Manuka honey. Perfect for when you need a refreshing hit of energy. Look out for it in your nearest cafe, health food store or supermarket, or shop the Petes Natural range online.
Rethink Market Bag
Make the right environmental choice with this certified organic Rethink string bag and never use a plastic produce bag at the supermarket again. We love that these bags are made from sustainable and unbleached Indian cotton, and are 100% biodegradable.
The bag stretches to hold 15kg, and features two handle sizes for effortless shopping. It’s perfect for holding everything from milk to potatoes.
Check out the entire innovative, organic, and environmentally pure Rethink product range here.
Linden Leaves Miraculous Facial Oil
Another Good favourite, the team uses the Linden Leaves Miraculous Facial Oil both morning and night for its nourishing and soothing properties. Luxurious and regenerative, we promise that your skin will feel clean, smooth and supple with just a few drops!
We are so excited for you to try this certified organic and cruelty free product that’s made with love in New Zealand.
Swisspers Cotton Tips
Swisspers Cotton Tips are made from 100% cotton and sustainably sourced paper stems. In addition to cleaning the outer ear, they are ideal for precision application and touch-ups of make-up.
The stiff paper stem gives you greater control compared to a standard plastic stem – plus switching to paper stems reduces single-use plastics in our environment. The re-sealable and recyclable plastic bag uses 90% less plastic than a conventional tub.
