SKINCARE PRODUCTS HAVE ARRIVED
We promised to help with your new year’s resolutions to lower your waste output in 2019. This week, we’re delivering on that promise.
Rhubarb member Lydia Martel makes beautiful, eco-friendly, all-natural skincare. Her range is called lili free soins du corps, and she’s making it available to Rhubarb members at special prices.
You’ll see each of the products listed twice in the shop – that’s because each one is available as a refill when you return the original packaging from your first order to Lydia, who will reuse it.
Our pick is the mango shampoo bar. Make the switch from plastic bottles to solid shampoo. It’s a zero-packaging win! If you supply your own little box or thick paper bag, you can order at the refill price right away.
- uses as many organic ingredients as possible
- minimal, refillable, recyclable packaging made of aluminium and glass
- labels made of 100% recycled paper and printed with vegetable inks
- everything is handmade in Clovelly, so there’s next to zero shipping miles
- lili free makes monthly donations to Sea Shepherd

Please note that as the range is super natural, some products may melt at high temperatures or harden at low ones. They’ll go back to normal when temps do. This is part of the fun.
LESS THAN 2 WEEKS TILL SUMMER PARTY!
Please join us for a relaxed morning tea by the playground at the Randwick Community Centre. We love wandering through the sustainability garden there, too, it’s always inspiring.
Numbers needed for the caterer, so please RSVP now.
Let us know if you need a new email invitation: firstname.lastname@example.org
VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED
If you’ve been enjoying the benefits of our co-op for a while but are yet to step up to take on some responsibility, now’s your chance. Rhubarb can’t run without your support.
We require 3 new evening coordinators, 2 new lunch coordinators, and 1 or 2 new dry goods coordinators, each taking on 1 shift every 4 weeks.
This is not a huge commitment, and it's a great way to feel more connected to the co-op and increase your insight into how Rhubarb works. We won't throw you in the deep end - we'll make sure you're fully-trained and raring to go!
Please read the job descriptions to see what the roles require.
On Thursdays, lunch coordinators work 11.30am - 1.30pm and dry goods coordinators work 12 - 2pm. Evening co-ordinators work 5 - 7pm. All 3 jobs attract 10% discounts, too - meaning your fruit and veg orders are reduced to the wholesale price.
Olive oil is back in the shop!
Same deal for cherries this week. They’re ordered in 5kg boxes, so we need to sell the full 5kg of each to go ahead.rachel - Sunday 12:06 PM 20 January 2019
