As more orders come in for delivery and fewer customers are shopping in person, we have made a few changes to our opening and delivery hours.
The shop will be OPEN to customers from 9am to 2pm, Monday to Saturday. From 2pm onwards, the shop will be CLOSED so that we can prepare orders for delivery.
The orders that we pack in the afternoon will now be delivered the following morning, between 9am and 11am. For example, if customers in Rudgwick normally receives deliveries on a Tuesday, the slot will now be between 9am and 11am, with orders to be placed before 12 noon the PREVIOUS day.
By making these changes we are able to get in more helpers to pack when the shop is closed. Please make a note of tour new opening times.
Charlie Edwards, Manager.

PRESS RELEASE: 11 March 2020
FOR EARTH’S SAKE - Where shoppers put our planet first
It’s going to be a busy time at waste-free and plastic-free For Earth’s Sake in Cranleigh over the next four weeks. Not only will there be lots of goodies to pamper and please all mums this Mother’s Day (Sunday 22 March) the shop will also be celebrating its 1st birthday (Sunday 5 April) with a week and more of special events highlighting what you can find in the shop and how anyone can live and shop more sustainably.
Following the great success of For Earth’s Sake’s first ever Pampering Day (Saturday 29 February), further ranges are being added to the shop including products from Puremess, Savannah Salts, The Clever Cactus and Vinnie & Brigitte. There will be a special Mother's Day selection display where you will find Hand creams and Face creams, Eye Masks, Reusable Face/Cosmetic Wipes, Bamboo Face Pads, fabulously scented and soothing Bath Salts and much more.
In addition, For Earth’s Sake, which opened its doors on Friday, 5th April 2019 will be celebrating a year of delivering single-use plastic free and waste free shopping to the town of Cranleigh with over a week of special events (from 4th April) including Indian curry making demonstrations from Anil, a day of all things Greek from Georgio of The Life Goddess, a Cleaner Living & Greener Soul day, an Easter Egg making demonstration. Full details of each day will be announced shortly.
The shop, which puts the planet, people and provenance before profit, continues to be a valued and significant addition to Surrey’s zero waste, zero single-use plastics shopping experience; so far almost 28,000 shoppers have left the shop without a single new piece of plastic in their bags.
Vanessa Ford-Robbins, owner of For Earth’s Sake, said: “It's certainly going to be a busy time over the coming weeks, though a wonderfully busy time. With Mother’s Day just around the corner and a whole host of new pampering and plastic-free goodies in the shop there really is something for everyone to buy their mum as a thank you for simply (!) being mum. In addition to this we will have our first birthday celebrations, with a host of special events showcasing what we have, what we do and how you can live a more sustainable life. A year on from our Opening Day we have much to celebrate, though also as a town and a country there is much more we can do for the planet, for its people and for our local environment.”
