Dear all SPOONFUL customers, Thank you for your support for the last 4 years! As you know that I am expecting a baby in November. During this special time, we have decided to close our store and cafe on 97 Military Road, Neutral Bay from 8th November 2016 til 31st January.  We will return with a fresh look to the cafe and lots of awesome Australian products to share. In the meantime, take care and have a wonderful holidays season!!!


What is LOHAS?

What is LOHAS?

LOHAS is an acronym for Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability. The LOHAS concept is praised by the younger generation for its solution focus to some of the problems of pollution and environmental harm. Where some environmental perspectives focus mainly on the problems, and leave people feeling panicked by a sense of crisis, LOHAS is about living optimistically in our environment and cultivating a healthy lifestyle. “Life of Health” is about personal choice: choose food that is unpolluted or organic, recycle, use public transport instead of driving your own car. It is basically anything that is good for the environment and...

澳式乐活 LOHAS

Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS) - 乐活,在国内也已经是一个家喻户晓的理想生活模式。 在被大自然和好空气包围的澳大利亚,澳人虽然对LOHAS这个名词还不太熟悉,就却随处都能看到乐活的生活态度和心态了。 在悉尼,人们都会在不知不觉中活在同一个节奏上。周一到周四上班前或下班后我们会挤在在健身房,瑜伽学校,公园或海滩上,周五的5pm会准时出现在公司附近的酒吧里,周六一定会在9am前赶到organic market (有机市集)补货,周六日11am和朋友约在像SPOONFUL一样的小cafe吃个brunch(早午餐)或是在公园或海滩上约朋友和家人一起野餐或BBQ。每逢假期或长周末我们的就会毫不犹豫地自驾或出国旅游,拥挤的机场和堵塞的Pacific Highway(太平洋高速)就更能让你感受到澳人对工作与生活平衡 (work life balance)的执着。 在消费方面,近年澳大利亚也兴起了Shop Small 和 Buy Local的热潮。Shop Small 和Buy Local的主张是尽量购买本土制造,本地养植的蔬菜水果和支持小品牌和小商家。所以,我们看到了这几乎被大企业和外国企业完全垄断的澳大利亚零售业和制造业有开始有了巨大的改变。在这几年,澳大利亚的很多小品牌和小作坊在大放异彩。 Joanna在开SPOONFUL时的初衷也是因为看到澳大利亚本土有很多小品牌和小作坊都在默默推动着环保和乐活的生活理念并想要加入它们。这些我们常称为Cottage Industry (家庭手工业)的小商家才是真正执着去就地取材,使用最传统天然的加工方法和坚持使用有机和天然素材来制造“纯”澳大利亚产品。 随着城市发展,工业污染的日渐加剧,多重压力下的国人对生活品质愈发重视。 在我们无法改变客观自然环境的当下,澳大利亚制造的产品也许便是传递“澳式乐活理念”的最好道具。这其中,澳洲的有机食品,保健品,护肤品,香薰和家具清洁产品始终走在世界前列。相信在不久的将来本店会有愈来愈多的澳洲品牌介绍给我们中国市场,带给国人不同的“澳式生活品质”。

Brand Short Description Place of Origin iKOU iKOU uses solar power in the Blue Mountains to hand make an indulgent, sensory range of eco, natural wax candles, botanical skincare, bath & body products and herbal teas.  Leura, New South Wales Mokosh Mokosh, from Freemantle, Western Austrlaian, is certified organic skin care that takes an unconventional approach to their formulations, using no water. The moisturisers are thus very concentrated - up to 5 times more than a standard lotion - and so only require a tiny dab. By leaving out the water, they are able to leave out preservatives.
