Pookipoiga Means Taking Care of the World with Fair and Ethical Retail Practices

Retail businesses worldwide can learn much from Pookipoiga, the quirky and ethical Australian shop that stocks primarily local stuff made with fair trade, ethics and sustainability in mind. The retail and gift store stocks only products whose footprints arrive clean to the store without causing disturbances in the world around. Not only this, the store eagerly donates two meals to the homeless with every purchase made.

Today, many manufacturing and trade practices violate humane and eco-friendly values. The store thus ensures that its suppliers abide by its caring and responsible philosophy. The online and physical store can be browsed for a range of Australian made gifts and goodies, from vegan raw snacks, ethical cashmere, bamboo sunglasses, hand-printed leggings to jewellery made from recycled bicycle parts.

The store’s name, Pookipoiga, is derived from a Finnish word that literally means ‘little washer boy’, and commonly stands for a clothes peg. The store began its journey last year, inspired by the thought of making the world a better place by caring a little more for it. Many of its suppliers are thus well known for their community work. In particular, buyers can look out for upcycled, recycled and high-quality gifts like Tread and Pedals’ upcycled bicycle bottle openers, Deadwood Creative’s recycled skateboard earrings, Thurlby Herb Farm’s delicious herb soaps and clothing protectors, The Raw Philosophy’s beauty products, and Karrke’s Indigenous seed necklaces.

Every purchase made at the store, being a gift from a social business, is a win-win: ethical consumerism bringing food on the table for two. The meal donation scheme is done through OzHarvest, Australia’s leading food rescue charity, who rescue food from restaurants, supermarkets and cafes to feed those less fortunate, extending Pookipoiga’s focus on the social and sustainable.

Pookipoiga is celebrating its first anniversary this September, and invites everyone to become part of its network and community, which means doing only that business which promotes well being and happiness in the world.
