Stock up on eco-friendly cleaning goodies at new Currumbin store

We Gold Coasters are a loyal bunch, support local was our thing long before the current state of affairs took over. These days we’re just upping the ante and for good reason, the people of our city are very clever and have every single one of our needs covered.

Including friends, eco-friendly cleaning products that can be bought in bulk and that are not only affordable but will do absolutely no harm to the environment. Which is obviously more important than ever.

Introducing Consciously Clean, a brand new local store that yes, offers household cleaning supplies including everything from laundry liquid to multi-purpose cleaners, disinfectant, surface spray, all of the things. You’re encouraged to take your own jars or bottles in any size (or you can buy in-store if you need to) and fill them up with whatever you need.

Not only those though, there are personal products like moisturiser, deodorant, face creams and serums, razors, soaps and the like for ladies and gentlemen and products for your pets that are not only good for them, but good for the planet.

You can get water bottles, containers and wraps to store food, cleaning brushes and cloths, produce bags, you name it, you can get it there in a conscious version that won’t cost the earth in any way.

Also, and don’t get too excited, there is hand sanitiser you can buy in bulk, toilet paper and all of the things your local market may have run out of that you’ve been searching for over a month now.

Owner Kelli’s aim is to grow the community as much as possible and so, sources the majority of products at Consciously Clean from local brands.

In March she calculated the business had already stopped over 900 plastic bottle ending up in waste just through the re-use of jars and bottles. How good.

So, if you’re in the market for some quality cleaning products for your home and yourself (and we know you are) head down to Consciously Clean and do your bit for the environment and the local community by purchasing some eco-friendly products.

BONUS: it smells amazing in there too.

Happy planet saving.

Currumbin Boatshed

Vintage Currumbin drinking hole transforms into chic, new eatery

There have been a few fancy makeovers happening on the Gold Coast of late, old favourites getting a facelift or transforming completely, it’s very exciting.

The latest institution to get a revamp is the bar formerly know as Currumbin Pub on Traders Way, now known as Currumbin Hotel and sporting a delightful new look, a new menu and a whole new vibe really.

You may not have ventured inside before now, the pub version was more of an after work drinking hole for the locals and while it will no doubt still fulfil that important purpose, it will also now be a more family-friendly spot perfect for lunchtime catch-ups, laidback nights out and afternoon beverages with the entire crew.

The space has been opened up with a new entrance, put in place on the streetside of Traders Way that leads into both the interior and alfresco dining areas. There’s also still access from the carpark and plenty of parking available all around.

The colour palette is a peach and teal situation, putting out all the chill vibes Currumbin is known for, high bench seating, dining tables and even a few lounges are available if ultimate relaxation is your thing. Which it obviously is.

Love the overall look, it’s a fun time.

 

Now to eat, there’s pub food but better with goodies like share plates, burgers, pizza, salads and a grill section to choose from.

We recommend starting with a few share plates, Spicy Chorizo and Grilled Haloumi, Pulled Pork Sliders and Garlic Infused Prawns perhaps? I think so.

Pub Classics include a Chargrilled Beef Burger, English Style Fish & Chips and Chicken Parmigiana to name a few and there are pizzas in many varieties plus steaks, plenty of tasty sides and dessert, of course.

To drink there’s quite the array of wine, beer and spirits including lots of local brands you know and love (old faves like Melbourne Bitter make a well-deserved appearance too) so you’re certainly spoiled for choice in that department.

In all the departments really, it’s a very impressive transformation.

If chic but also chill drinking and dining times are your idea of fun, Currumbin Hotel is the place to be. Open now, go check it out.

LOCATION: Traders Way, Currumbin
HOURS: From 10am until late daily
