- Eco-friendly Detergents & All Natural Cruelty Free Beauty Products

Goods are ordered directly from local farms and suppliers and hand picked or prepared the day before delivery. There is no waste, no artificial ripening process, nor is there a need for items to sit around on shop shelves for days or weeks before purchase.
WE DELIVER directly to your door whether it be at home or conveniently at your office.
We are also aiming to reduce waste from the supplier to you and so we use certified compostable packaging wherever possible and we use a refill, rebate & return system for any item bought from our store.
Remember the milk bottle exchange from way back then, well its back, its better and its a waste free living at its best! We work with a deposit and rebate system for glass jars and bottles. When you place an order you will automatically be charged for your glass container which is a fully refundable deposit. Your account will receive a credit when we deliver your next order and pick up your empty jars/ bottles/ containers.
You may also return boxes, crates and any empty plastic container bought from our store for a rebate on your account. Thats right, we actually reward you for boxes, crates and any empty plastic containers!
At Greenheart Organics, we believe that education is key and that sustainable sustenance is the surest way to create a sustainable future. It is this ethos that has made us one of the most competitive online stores in KZN. We want to spread the health! With us you will find going organic & waste free is just as rewarding on your conscious as it is on your bank account!
Commitment to Grow Organically
The commitment to go organic begins with heart, with a passion for a healthy lifestyle and with sustainable environmental practices. In essence the organic farmer believes it is important to allow Mother Nature to provide us with food and nutrients the way nature intended. The end result is health, for the environment and for the consumer.
We visit our suppliers regularly in order to get to know our farmers. Greenheart Organics is an established PGS group which means we encourage transparency with a locally focused quality assurance system based on a foundation of trust, social networks and knowledge exchange.
“PGS programmes require a fundamentally ecological approach to agriculture that uses no synthetic chemical pesticides, fertiliser or GMOs, and further sustains farmers and workers in a cradle of long-term economic sustainability and social justice.” IFOAM – Organics International
We believe in taking back our power of choice!
There is a great deal that we do not know about the associated risks of pesticide & chemical use in both our agricultural fields, and in our homes. What we do know is that chemicals and pesticides are toxic. We need to learn more about the mounting studies which are finding evidence of health problems linked to pesticide exposure.
We are given a sense of security with clever marketing, store specials and attractive packaging in the midst of busy supermarkets and shopping malls. There is however a sinister side to the everyday items we place in our shopping baskets & trolleys.
Did you know the following items are known cancer causing foods: Genetically Modified Food; Processed meat; Canned goods; Hydrogenated oils; Refined sugar & artificial sweeteners; Salted, smoked, cured or pickled foods; Carbonated beverages; Refined carbohydrates; Processed breakfast cereals; Microwave popcorn; Potato chips.
If this isn’t scary enough consider ecosystems fuelled by frogs and bees being slowly diminished due to large scale monoculture and pesticide use.
The Root of it..
Going back to our roots – the ancestral kind – there was no need to navigate through additive laden shopping isles and decipher tricky marketing tactics. Food was naturally grown, prepared from raw ingredients, unprocessed and real. Looking to the future, it is our children who will tread in our footsteps and plant the seeds of change for future generations. Lets hope they will be heirloom seeds!
