Greenlife – More than just a Health Store
Located on the market square at the top of Totnes, we are one of the largest health food shops in the South West. Greenlife has been trading since 1990. Our ethos has always been to source from local suppliers where possible, and to offer the widest possible selection of ethically traded products on our shelves. We stock many vegan, dairy free and gluten free foods, and the majority of the products that we sell are organic.
1-2 Birdwood Court
Shopping at Greenlife
Alongside a wide selection of wholefoods, vegan and free-from foods, we sell organic fruit and vegetables, fresh dairy produce, chilled and frozen foods and green household products.
We also have an extensive range of vitamins and minerals, herbal supplements and natural bodycare products in store, and advice is always on hand from our team of experienced advisors.
Monday – Friday: 9am – 6pm
Saturday: 9am – 5:30pm
The Greenlife Loyalty card is a points card that is available to all of our customers. Simply ask to fill out an application form and get 1 point per £1 spent in store. If you are over 65 years old, then you can apply for one of our 5% discount cards instead.
The story of Hylsten Bakery in Buckfastleigh is one that is full of passion, drive and determination. It is also a story of resilience in the face of some profound bad luck, and a heartening tale of a community coming together to save a much loved artisan business.
Fairtrade Fortnight is upon us. As you can see from these pictures, we make a big deal out of the Fairtrade Foundation’s national two-week campaign in Greenlife.
Cholesterol is a lipid, or fat that is produced by the liver and is also found in some foods. We all need cholesterol to stay healthy, but high levels of cholesterol circulating in your blood can sometimes cause hardening of the arteries, which can in turn increase your risk of heart and circulatory diseases. So when is it a problem and what can you do about it?
Greenlife is committed to supporting ethical business and Fair Trade, and we carry a wide range of Fairtrade Foundation and Fair For Life kite marked products.
Our efforts in support of the Fairtrade Foundation have been rewarded with no less than six South West Fairtrade business awards. We were proud to achieve gold in 2019.
Greenlife is dedicated to supporting the organic food industry and to promoting organic supplements and beauty products. We also sell a wide range of eco products and sustainable solutions.
We have drastically reduced the plastic on our shelves and are working with suppliers to go even further towards the twin goals of plastic reduction and recycling. We now have recycling points in store for Ella’s baby pouches, Weleda products and our own label Greenlife products.
Greenlife is a Living Wage Employer
The Living Wage Foundation is an initiative started by Citizens UK in 2001. Today it boasts cross party support and there are now over 10,000 accredited employers. The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum.
Greenlife is proud to be an accredited Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment sees that everyone working at Greenlife receives a minimum hourly wage that is significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s.
We are proud to be a part of the local community through its relationships with local suppliers and producers.
Our policy of stocking local or U.K. producers where available is also in line with our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint. In addition, we have a very popular community notice board which is used by local health practitioners and by our customers as a place to advertise local events. We also have a permanent collection point in store for The Totnes Connection hub food bank.
