    Health is the Real Wealth.

    March 20 2020

    There is no more time for business as usual. Around the world, humanity is entering a chrysalis. An initiation. A metamorphosis, a deep change in society as we know it, into a new kind of civilization. As a company, a business with core values of wellbeing, we have had to make some responsible calls. How can we best adapt to...

    Water is Life 🌊

    August 14 2018

    WATER IS LIFE 🌊 We are anywhere from 70-99% water beings. Because of that massive percentage, it makes sense for us to drink the best quality, pure and mineralized water that we can find - in order to for us to replenish our cells with the best quality building blocks of life.

  • The Revolution Comes From Within

    July 18 2017

    The real revolution, is the evolution of consciousness... From the food we eat, to the way we eat. The intention we put into that food before it enters our bodies, the gratitude we have for the earth mother Papatuanuku who provides that nourishment, and to the human hands which prepared it...

    Entrepreneurship | Organic Mechanic

    May 24 2017

    Organic Mechanic was born out of a dream to do things differently, to be liberated from society's ideals of having a career, of having a job, being a cog in the machine, working on someone else's dreams..

    The Cannabis Revolution

    April 12 2017

    When I think about the damage that alcohol has caused in our society... How many cases of heart disease and liver toxicity directly attributed to alcohol consumption have ended lives... How many acts of violence, idiotic behaviour and bad decisions have been made under its influence...

    Breakfast with Graedy Plums

    January 25 2017

    What are your top four tips for taking the stress out of breakfast? 1. Drink pure water.

A few cups in the morning can help to kickstart our...
