[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”12474″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Zero waste week 2019 runs from the 2nd to the 6th of September (apparently it’s a short week!) so we’d like to remind you of just how we have and are trying to make zero waste living more of an accessible option locally here in Wexford. Living life without generating unnecessary plastic waste isn’t easy, it takes planning and effort but please don’t be put off by that, if you start by doing a little more and by being a little more conscious today then you can do more again tomorrow. Change has to start sometime![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”13421″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”green”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

So there you have it. We have a pretty packed week planned to start September and we really want to bring the zero waste message to a wider audience locally. We’d like to think that what we’re doing in Only Natural can become part of the solution that helps families around Wexford to lead less wasteful, more environmentally-friendly lives.

But this won’t happen without you. It’s your decision to become a regular zero-waste shopper that will make all the difference. And to make it even easier for you we have fantastic deals for the week on all things zero waste with our main one being 15% off all our bulk bins products – so what are already great value will be unbelievably fantastic value so it’s a good time to try and stock up!

Tarot and Angel Card readings now available in Only Natural

We all come to times in our lives when we feel ‘stuck’, perhaps unresolved issues are holding us back from achieving our full potential. These are the times when a little spiritual guidance can be invaluable to shine light on these obstacles and the potential for growth and happiness if we can just make the right choices. Tarot and Angel card readings are two popular ways of transmitting guidance from spirit. With Tarot we see how archetypal forces affect our lives and with Angel Card readings we enter into direct communication with God’s own divine messengers. In talented hands both can be invaluable sources of wisdom and guidance and we feel we’ve found such hands in Mark Nichols. Mark will be offering Tarot and Angel Card readings in Only Natural on August 31st, September 7 and September 14. Call us on 053 912 3236 or drop in to make a booking. Here’s Mark’s own take on what he does.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”96px”][vc_single_image image=”13414″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”green”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]”I am attentive, empathic, compassionate and dedicated to help guide others along the path of life, especially when seeking a new direction, feeling stuck in routines that don’t work or trying to overcome great changes and loss. Tarot and Angel Card readings are an important feature of my healing practice as they are the perfect tool for developing spiritual healing and inner growth. When you consult with me for solutions to the challenges you are facing at the moment, I am committed to faithfully deliver messages displayed through the reading and relay Divine guidance, inner awareness, understanding and special insights in a practical and judgement free way. There is more going on than meets the eye and I try to help you gain insight into those truths which aren’t easily visible. Over the years, I have also received training in Reiki to Master Level, Energy Management, Astrology and Numerology.  My personal daily spiritual practice includes Meditation and Yoga.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
