Good For Life
| ISSUE no 1
Keeping it bottled up
We are all finding our feet in these weird and uncertain times. If you maintained your sustainable goals throughout then you are an absolute inspiration and a legend. I think most of us found it challenging to start with but soon found a pattern where it became more important to avoid waste and a realisation that life on our planet is vulnerable and it demands a little extra respect
Enough about that. This newsletter has been requested by a number of customers who have expressed an interest in knowing what we have been working on and what new products are coming in. We have also collected together some of our favourite products to share with you.
Stay safe, stay sustainable and stay tuned. Let us have your thoughts - good or bad, we are always trying to get better. Our mission is to provide sustainable alternatives to single use products and to do this with integrity and respect for the environment
Designs have been inspired by catwalk creations and are printed onto our triple wall vacuum insulated life collection bottles. Each bottle is supplied with a steel scew cap plus a sports cap with internal silicone straw
We have a whole new set of amazing patterns arriving late September/early October.
We have the ever popular camouflage in Hunter and Desert versions. A stunning Tropical luxe print. An All Souls/Day of the Dead pattern in time for halloween, a retro wild horses print and an abstract floral.
More designs are on the way so checkout our coming soon pages for future favourites.
We are also printing our popular Classic vacuum bottles. These will have a grey camo, a tropical illustration and sharks!
the new natural
Sophisticated and subtle Scandi inspired range of Life collection bottles in 5 colours, pompom, stormy, milk, stork and nougat. Available in 350ml and 500ml. Bottles supplied with matching sports cap and matching silicone straw
We reckon it is a 50:50 split between people who use the internal straw and people who prefer not to use them. Rather than having surplus straws going straight to landfill we have decided to make them so stylish you will want to hang onto them to use as a replacement for single use straws. Ultimately they are food grade silicone so 100% recyclable.
The New Naturals will be arriving in late October/November
Coming soon - we will be launching onelittlegreenbottle. We will be unveiling our stainless steel baby bottle in our new natural colours. Beautifully packaged with a bespoke Lois O'Hara designed, zero plastic gift box. The baby bottle is designed for first bottle through to toddler sippy cup

This isn’t high and mighty sustainable fashion, we’re all about ‘good times, organically sourced’. Making sure that it feels good to do good when it comes to choosing more sustainable styles for your wardrobe.

Don't Buy her flowers
A few more of our favourite things
At Don’t Buy Her Flowers we ‘do’ thoughtful gifting. We want the person receiving one of our packages to feel loved and cared for, and know that someone has thought about them by choosing a gift package that is just right, whether it’s to celebrate, commiserate or offer the next best thing to a reassuring hug when they can’t be there. With over 100 products to choose from which range from beauty to TLC, to alcohol to chocolate,
Don’t Buy Her Flowers is set apart by ‘thoughtfulness’ and the fact that our customers can make a bespoke package that perfectly suits the person they are sending it to. It becomes a physical manifestation of a human gesture. We’ve just launched a new package too just for kids as we were often asked about sending gifts to children.
Don’t Buy Her Flowers launched in 2014, starting with just three packages and Steph packing orders in her spare bedroom. The idea came after Steph had her first baby and was inundated with beautiful bouquets of flowers..

Lois O’Hara’s brand ethos explores how colour can have positive effects on people and places. It also explores fluidity and capturing the movement of time.
Lois is fascinated by process. Her vibrant, diverse and creative practice takes in Mural Painting, Design & Art Direction and Illustration. Her work has a consistent thread running through it. "I'm interested in capturing the fluidity of an image in motion," says Lois, and it's this sense of fluidity, combined with her bold colour combinations that makes her style so recognisable.
Lois’s visual narratives and patterns are playful and she has a positive outlook on life; therefore, her artwork is influential and powerful. Lois is also passionate about how colour can have positive effects on people and places. She has transformed many outdoor spaces and she has partnered with some exciting brands.
