Online Shopping at Healthy PlanetSunday, April 12, 2015
A while back, I was invited to shop from among Healthy Planet's online selection of products that include vitamins, supplements, groceries, health foods, bath & beauty and eco-friendly products. Healthy Planet first began as a small kiosk in a strip mall on the Danforth and has expanded to include eleven store locations across the GTA, the newest location having opened in Whitby just recently. And now, via healthyplanetcanada.com, you can shop from the comfort of your own home.
One of the first items I added to my shopping list was a Santevia Alkaline Flask. This energy flask allows you to enjoy the benefits of alkaline, re-mineralized water on the go. It is reusable and made of stainless steel. It includes two mineral baskets that contain all natural compounds such as tourmaline stones to raise the pH, maifan stone to re-mineralize the water with iron, zinc, calcium, etc., chlorine reduction balls and more. Given that the upper mineral basket need only be replaced after approximately 1000 uses or up to 1 year, I wasn't surprised to see that the cost of the flask was listed at a regular price of $44.58. Luckily, Healthy Planet offers a 21% savings with a price point of $34.99.
Next on my list were some bath products. I never seem to have enough body soap so I knew I had to stock up. One of my favourites is the Fresh Mint Body Wash by Green Beaver. A 250mL bottle is listed at $8.29, a 28% savings but I'm starting to think I should have bought the 4L bottle instead. I also added a bar of The Soap Works Soap Tea Tree Oil for a mere $1.79, which saved me 55% off the regular price.
The final item I added to my shopping list was a bag of Love Crunch Dark Chocolate and Red Berries by Nature's Path. Ever since we headed up to Forks in the Trail Bed and Breakfast for a mini family getaway earlier this year, I have been craving yoga and granola in the mornings. While it has been a challenge to find granola comparable to their homemade version, Love Crunch comes pretty close. And I saved 28% by purchasing it through Healthy Planet for $5.99 for a 325g bag.
On the whole, shopping through their online site was easy and I was happy to find an abundance of affordable, healthy products from which to choose. Plus, I appreciate that they offer free shipping on orders over $49.99 across Canada. The good news is, you can also save an additional 10% using this special discount code: DianaM10.
Also, take note that, if you live in the Toronto area, Healthy Planet will have a couple of booths at the Total Health Show 2015 being held at the Metro Convention Centre this weekend. Be sure to stop by for additional discounts and giveaways.
