The Organic World: What is your guiding philosophy when it comes to shopping for your home whether it’s for groceries, staples, homecare…
Gunjan Sharma: I am very old school when it comes to shopping for my home and family – I believe in opting for sustainable and healthier options whenever possible. I wish it would be possible to go back in time and have the means to grow and cultivate what one needed – life would be so much better! I believe in quality over quantity. I often tell my friends that health and wellness is more than just a passing fad found within the pages of glossy magazines! I love organic and unlike most people organic for me is not solely FOOD – I look for organic options right from cleaning products to bedding.
TOW: What are some of your favourite items that you feel are a must-buy?
GS: I am crazy about Organic Dairy Products such as A2 Cow Milk, Cheese, Paneer and Ghee! I wonder how much garbage I have eaten in the past, but once I acquired a taste for this, there was no going back. Green vegetables, organic staples and fruits are also a big favourite. I also love the organic green teas and aroma oils – my day starts with the first and ends with the other. I recently tried some Organic Skin Care products like the Organic Harvest Face Wash and Organic India Facial Ubtan Cleanser – they were both amazing!
TOW: How has shopping at TOW helped enhance or change the way you focus on homecare or wellness or cooking?
GS: My dad introduced me to TOW in 2019 and since then I have always shopped here. I love the wide range of products available and not to forget their home delivery service (which makes life easier). Today 50-60% of my daily need products come from TOW. I can blindly trust the quality of the stuff I purchase here. Especially in this pandemic, TOW has been my favourite place to visit every weekend. The hygiene, service and quality is really great.
TOW: Has shopping at TOW helped you become a more mindful shopper?
GS: Oh yes, it has! There are so many amazing options here that I never knew even existed in the market. I now slow-cook my meals in earthen pots. I have switched to organic products for my home-garden. We use natural insect repellents now!
