Meet Lucy, HealthPost Executive Director, daughter to founder Linley, mum to Isla and Leo, and self-confessed natural product addict! Read along as Lucy shares with us each month exciting happenings at HealthPost, our progress towards creating a better world, and some musings on how she and her family strive towards living a naturally healthy life.
One thing that keeps us fired up and true to our purpose of helping people lead naturally healthier lives is reading your customer reviews.
Your reviews keep us connected to why what we’re doing matters: the difference that finding the right natural solution at the right time can make in someone’s life. They also tip us off to when a product isn’t living up to your expectations, and give us a chance to do something about it.
My mother Linley started HealthPost almost 30 years ago, because she truly believed in natural remedies and wanted to make them more accessible. Now retired, Mum remains one of our biggest customers. I share her passion for our products (I prefer not to look at how much of my wage goes on my staff account!), and I always check out customer reviews if I’m trying something new.
Of course, one person’s experience is simply that, and isn’t necessarily representative. We love that reviews are authentically unique, and often amazingly candid, offered in the spirit of creating a shared wealth of knowledge.
Positive or otherwise, your reviews paint an inspiring picture of a community proactively engaged in being well. Because when it comes to health, no one has all the answers, and we’re all learning from each other.
So, thank you, for sharing so generously of your own experiences, and for keeping us connected to the ‘why’ of what we do.
Winter is a fine time for musing and planning, quietly laying the foundation for good things to come. Here at HealthPost we’ve been challenging ourselves to dig deep and find more creative ways to put our values into action.
Here are just a few things, large and small, that are warming up our winter:
We’re stoked to support Habitat for Humanity New Zealand through our Better World donation programme. Because everyone in New Zealand and beyond deserves a decent roof over their heads, and these folks know how to make it happen.
We’ve done it forever, but Rhoda, our Collingwood General Manager, is taking it to the next level by establishing a proper two-bay compost from old packing crates. I’m looking forward to seeing the HealthPost orchard thriving this summer as a result of all that recycled goodness.
The sea is every bit as beautiful in winter, and we’re lucky enough to be right beside it. Project Jonah, our partners through Better World, won the Supreme Award at the Trustpower Community Awards recently for their amazing efforts at the mass whale stranding on Farewell Spit in February, where several HealthPost staff also lent a hand. Congrats guys!
You might have noticed that several Shark-based products have recently disappeared from our range. Understanding the vulnerability of some shark species, and the potential impact of shark fishing on dolphins and other at risk species, we want to err on the side of caution.
We are currently working through our whole 5000+ product range to make sure we continue to bring you only the best, healthiest and most sustainable natural products available anywhere.
As always, we welcome your feedback, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
HealthPost Executive Director
