Smart Ass TP

Sooo, the guys at Innocent packaging make something wonderful on the side. Smart Ass toilet paper, tree free, which supports the work of Million Metre Streams as it sells. Made from bamboo and sugar cane (yup, sugar cane isnt the best, but it sure beats cutting down trees to answer the call of nature). Click HERE to shop for your home, office or cafe...


UNder new ownership at NOVA. But there's still treats all day long, always generous with the good stuff - Nova is a full-service cafe, bar, eatery, restaurant. Smart, sharp but homely. A european style eatery, adjoing the Dunedin Public Art Gallery and perfectly located for pre-theatre or movie eats and drinks. Maybe the best skinny fries in town? And a bloody good coconut milk hot chocolate! Luscious or light lunches, hearty and wholesome dinners.

A Give Away...

...that never stops. If you'd like to win a reusable flask, head over to our instagram and get into a give away that won't close 'til bottled water is banned in New Zealand - we'll draw a random winner every week or two. Many UYOC cafes will refill water flasks for us, even if we aren't customers. And we all have access to a tap at home and/or work, so the time has come to stop buying water bottles. Now.
