20% off everything - that's not really very ethical is it...?
And the Suma in the 700g jars is £5.68/kilo when you bulk buy. Factor in 99p shipping, but also cashback and you have £5.53/kilo. Comparable and cheaper than Amazon at £6.11 for the same thing.
Picking up on your example, I agree with your comparison with many of the supermarkets but not all as Sainsbury's organic peanut butter works out at £5.90 per kilo. As it happens, you picked the one thing that we eat a lot of as your example and there it's even less clear that ESS is better than other sources. We buy Meridian peanut butter in the 1Kg tubs and ESS don't sell them. The Meridian that they do sell works out at £9 per kilo plus, in this case, 99p delivery making £10 per kilo delivered. I bought my last 2 x 1Kg tubs for £10.98 delivered from Amazon; which works out at £5.50 per kilo delivered. I do appreciate that it's not as simple as one product, it's just that due to ESS's overall pricing, I shop elsewhere.
I guess it depends on what something is worth to you. For instance, buying Suma peanut butter in their largest jars and in bulk, works out cheaper than quite a few comparable brands in all supermarkets. Got the email about this already, but thanks OP!
Ethical is a nice place to shop if you can afford their prices and so 99p delivery doesn't help me at all. :( Now, if someone has spotted some bargains that they'd like to tell us about, I, for one, would be *very* pleased to hear about them. :)
Hot from me for working out how to buy something at a sensible price from them. :)
Nice coffee, heat added.
Just use the mens somerset oil from Poundland if they still have it. All it is is sort of like a vegetable oil. It doesn't have a scent applied or anything.
But what about the rest of her? X)
I live in Norfolk, the women round here dry shave.
This'll do for the wife.....my christmas treat....her having a smooth face!
No problem, although but of an update if you're not keen on Nitromors for the final wire wool stage, try Paramose instead, and Paramose industrial, not the consumer Ecomose brand, it's cheaper at £30 for 5litres, works and seems to be more efficient at shifting mutli-layered paint (it's also sold for use as a dip-tank solution). Same manufacturer also produce a X-Tex and masonry cleaning goop, can't report or their effectiveness, but they do supply London Underground and I have some masonry to strip so I'll update if and when I give the product a test.
Wouldn't be cheaper to use Tesco Value Scotch? I heard it tastes like paint stripper!;) Seriously, thanks sybarite for the tip on using their other product for Artex removal, but yes I'd have to agree, a heat gun is still best way of removing paint, just requires patience!
Nitromors does work - but it's not a miracle, and the mess takes so long to clear. You just have to follow the instructions and be prepared to use abrasives after the gel has softened the paint. I actually find the balance of cost of Nitro v cost in time of heat gun favours a heat gun. One thing though, buy a decent digital controlled gun at £100, and hold 2 inches from the paint moving it constantly. Be prepaired to move the gun back and forth over a 2-3 inch section a few times until the paint blisters. Better to do an extra couple of waves with the gun and have the heat penetrate through to the bottom paint layer so it all comes off, more or less, on the first scrape - makes life much easier. £100 may seem like a lot for a tool - but it's worth it and can always be sold on after the job. With a heat gun you can get through large flat areas reasonably quickly, take off most of the layers in the mouldings then finish up with Nitromors (yellow container, it's the thin, non gel version) on wire wool to take of any residue of paint flecs. But do ensure you wipe down with white spirit/turps after the Nitro. There is a product that does work, search for peelaway/strip away, it's better for period plaster work and detail, but be warned whilst effective it's very very expensive. The short answer is there's no pain free way of stripping paint, or none that I've found. Elbow power and patience I'm afraid.
Thanks sybarite. Ive been looking for getting rid of gloss paint in the bathroom. Need to redecorate the bathroom. Ive been looking at nitromors just didnt have enough good reviews.
TBH this tuff is a waste of time - it shifts one layer of paint and no more. The same manufacturer produces a textured surface remover (which I suspect is actually the same product with a different label) and for this purpose it's excellent, softens artex overnight which can be peeled off in 24hrs - excellent if there's asbestos in your artex (which there probably is) Be aware though you'll need lots, you have to slap it on, the 15litre tubs can be purchased for £100. As for paint - heatgun and patience still seems to be the best solution, or if you can stomach the mess, Nitromors - horrible stuff.
I'm getting free postage over £40. Shame, I could definitely have spent £15 ;)
Can't find it on the site!
cant even find this?
Use these filters 8 for £16.95 Delivered. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/8-x-laica-biflux-water-filters-compatible-with-brita-maxtra-16-95-amazon-free-de/919349

looks to be OOS
Expired - no longer available on the website.
They billed my CC for the radio but then cancelled the order in their back-end system, but left the order as "processing". So in essence I've been charged for a product that will never be dispatched.
jenna Bad :(
Only Pink left now
Sadly the battery is now out of stock or I'd have bought both. The battery is £22 on eBay which is a bit steep and I wouldn't us this on the mains. It's more for in the garden in summer.
Now you will need to use it a bit as it will cost you £5 (at least for the first year, I think £1 after that although never really chaecked it)
Its expired now...damnit
thanks Op, that's a great deal. I managed to get £60.20 worth - take a look at the clearance section, loads of 50% off items worth getting if you like your special tea, chocolate etc Seems expensive at full price, but good deals in that section.
thanks, just joined. :)
https://www.quidco.com/join-quidco/ & it's quidco ;)
Charity shops? Ebay? Recycled clothes are still more environmentally friendly than new, and far cheaper too.
Well worth a look as they have some nice items, if a little expensive. If only there were a few more ethical stores on the high street where we could buy clothes fairly cheaply that are definitely not made in Leicester sweatshops or by children in India!

Get these at Oxfam.
plus £3.95 p&p
They fixed it, thats blasted quick lol
Looks like the glitch has been fixed - probably showed up in a Google alert ;)
Surely if you're buying from the ethical superstore and you uncover a glitch that means they'll lose money on the sale - isn't it then unethical to buy the item?
Says £49.95 for me. oO
