Happy to help

Posted on 09 / 08 / 2013

In addition to the other comments (which I generally agree with), the staff here are keen to help - if there's a specific vegan item you're looking for (for example, vegan-sourced Omega-3-DHA capsules), they're happy to find it and get it in for you. After I enquired, they started stocking the DEVA range of vegan supplements.

I find most of their stuff a bit expensive and tend to go to supermarkets instead (you can get non-dairy cheese in New World at $2 less per block), but it's a good source for some of the harder to find stuff.

Pros: Staff happy to source specific items
Cons: Expensive compared to supermarket

Vegan heaven

Posted on 02 / 20 / 2011

Having recently relocated to Wellington, I was delighted to stumble upon Commonsense organics. They have an incredible range of almost anything a vegan (in New Zealand at least) could ever wish for, from produce to cosmetics and everything in between, including vegan cheese! Although I would say the focus is definitely on the food side of things rather than skincare, makeup etc.

The store is extremely well set out and staff all seem very friendly. It is an essential visit for anyone with special dietary requirements living in Wellington. Prices aren't cheap, but that's to be expected.

Pros: Huge range, Central location
Cons: Limited range of cosmetics

Food for the ethical and health conscious eater

Not only does Commonsense Organics have a full range of organic food products, it also caters to those on gluten-free or vegan diets. As a vegan, I shop there to get my fix of almond milk, non-gelatin sweets, non-dairy cheese, vegan friendly cosmetics and environmentally conscious household products. Yum!

Pros: Ethical company, Large vegan range, Organic fix!
Cons: Expensive, Inconvenient parking

Commonsense Organics has a great range of stuff, including tempeh, soy cheeses, raw chocolate, and many other things your heart may desire. The fresh produce can sometimes be a bit unhappy looking, but it is a very clean shop. The staff don't seem overly interested in their jobs but generally know where to find things. Some things a bit overpriced, like biscuits and cake mixes. Can bring own container to fill with laundry liquid/dishwashing liquid/etc to save money and the planet.

Pros: good range, eco options, clean
Cons: bit expensive

Largest Organic retailer in NZ?

Posted on 12 / 07 / 2009

If I have the location correct, this was directly across from our hotel, museum hotel. Someone told me it is the largest organic retailer in NZ. Its OK. the produce was HORRIBLE the day we went, all wilted. I honestly have the best time at Woolworths, they have a decent organic area, soy milks, vegan soups, etc.
