1 Olympic Place, New Lynn
Shop Wednesday to Sunday, 10am-2pm
Closed on public holidays
From Tuesday 19 April, for approximately three weeks, there will be no access to Olympic Place from Wolverton Street, due to the ongoing culvert works. We’d still love to see you so please enter from Portage Road, into the carpark leading to Waitākere Gymnastics and take the slip road from that upper car park to access our EcoMatters Store and Bike Hub.
More than a shop, the EcoMatters Store offers a truly sustainable approach, with both new and upcycled goods for sale, as well as being a refill hub and recycling drop-off point.
At red or orange, we’re open for contactless purchases, refillery and recycling drop offs. Please wear a face mask and follow physical distancing guidelines.

Save money and reduce waste with our easy ecostore refill service. Grab and go with our swap-a-bottle or bulk container options, or bring in your own containers for product refills on the spot.
Swap-a-bottle is a container exchange service where you drop off clean empty ecostore containers and buy pre-filled ecostore products. If you prefer to use your own clean containers, these can be refilled on the spot and are charged per 100mls.
Either way, we ask that the containers you bring in are clean and dry, please.
