There’s nothing like an Australian summer – the drinks are cold and the fruit is sweet. You can keep the feel-good vibes going by supporting local makers and growers when you shop this summer. Doing your shopping at Australian businesses means supporting local jobs and families, and everyone can get behind that!
We’ve put together a list of piping hot Aussie-crafted goodies to suit every summer situation.
When you want to enjoy the outdoors:
Aussie summers are a time for barbecues, picnics, playing outside with the kids, and unfortunately, dealing with flies and mozzies. To uninvite pesky flies from your outdoor events, check out Australia’s number one fly trap system, the EnviroSafe Fly Trap - designed to attract and catch a wide range of Aussie flies with an effective, non-toxic bait. If you want to protect yourself from mozzies and midgies, check out the Natural Insect Repellent from Lemon Myrtle Fragrances. Effective for up to four hours, it’s gentle on the skin and perfect for the “mozzie magnet” in your family.
We all know that summer is the season when pools finally get used! To ensure your pool gate is secure and your family keeps safe, get yourself a LokkLatch® from D&D Technologies. When the pool day is over and it’s time to pack up, no one likes doing chores in the heat - so make taking out the bins twice as easy. The Bin Lift from Wheelie Bin Essentials allows you to easily piggyback your large and small bins and move them at the same time!
For those who like to enjoy the summer off-road, upgrade your 4WD with Suspension Accessories from Superior Engineering. That way you can use and abuse your 4WD and remain comfortable with the aircon pumping inside.
When you want to cool off inside:
On those hot days when all you want to do is stay inside, take the chance to spruce up your empty walls with a stylish Print from Retro Print Merchants. With a range of Aussie iconography and artworks to choose from, you’ll want nothing more than to sit and admire your new décor while you enjoy your aircon. When installing your aircon, make sure to ask your dealer or installer for QPRO genuine Aussie Made grills to be part of you air-conditioning system - the best way to make sure your house is evenly and effectively cooled. And whilst you’re lounging on the couch, don’t leave out your furry friend! The Calming Cuddler from Snooza is the ultimate relaxation pet bed, designed to make anxious pups feel safe and secure.
When you want to look after the garden:
You aren’t the only one who gets parched in the heat! The RolaRain Sprinkler from Wobble-Tee is a summer essential, and designed for agricultural situations and commercial irrigation. And for those on the lookout for an effective garden hose, look no further than the Lawnflex® garden hoses by Esdan Plastics. Designed to withstand harsh Aussie summers, they are UV protected – an inbuilt slip-slop-slap system for your hose.
When you’re ready to start your New Year routine:
Keep up your New Year’s resolutions for healthier habits with Aussie Made products! If you’ve made a resolution to focus on sustainability, swap out disposable plastic food wrap for some Snack Bags from The Laminated Cotton Shop. Made from food-safe fabric, they are easy to use, easy to clean, and a great eco-friendly purchase. You can also use the new year as a chance to upgrade your skincare with Trust Nature’s Body Care Kit. Made with Australian avocado oil, they are a great way for you and the family to add some fun to a new skincare routine. And when it’s finally time to return to the office, take the opportunity to elevate your business’ workspace with the new Zone system from Workspace Commercial Furniture.
