We are proud and delighted to have received some recognition from the industry over the last few years.

"Telstra Small Business of the Year 2018 for NSW"
August 2018 - We won Best Small & Succeeding Business for NSW at the Telstra Business Awards and are beyond thrilled about it. These awards are the best of the best; 3000 companies entered in NSW, there were 24 finalists and 4 category winnes, 4 out of 3000 - wow! This was a moment full of emotion and a pinnacle point for us. We are dedicated to F&F and have been from day one, this means so, so much to us so thank you to our amazing team, beautiful brands and suppliers we work with and our driven, passionate customers. Without you we wouldn't be here, we wouldn't exist and we wouldn't be driving change and behaviours.
July 2018 - We have been named Best Small Independent Retailer in the Online Retailer Awards. These are THE retailing awards and other winners include retailers such as ShowPo, Kogan, Catch and Cue so big names and little old Flora & Fauna.

March 2017 - Julie was voted as one of the Top 50 Ecommerce Retailers in Australia and was asked to speak to 200 retailers about responsible retailing, a perfect opportunity to try and convince some other retailers to think about what they do.
February 2017 - We were shortlisted as a finalist in the World Retail Awards for the Responsible Retailing Category. We could not be happier. We are so focused on operating ethically at every level, whether that be working with our brands and suppliers as partners, empowering our team and customers, or seeking out great alternatives to things we use every day which are better for us, our environment and are, of course, vegan and cruelty free. In July 2016 we stopped using plastic bags to send orders out and we have saved over 500kg of single use plastic from going into landfill. That is just one initiative we've worked on. We strongly believe there is a better way to operate a business and we are so happy we are sitting up there with some huge, huge businesses, showing retail and the world change is possible.

January 2017 our Founder Julie was listed as one of ten Australian Women to Watch in the Remodista Women2Watch Programme. It's great to be able to get some recognition for ethical businesses globally.
2015 and 2016
July 2016 - Finalist for 'Best New Retailer', 'Best Bootstrapped Growth Initiative' (it means we are smart with our few pennies) and also one of the Top Five Small Retail Businesses in Australia in the Startrack People's Choice Award as voted by our customers. We were happiest with the last award most as that was voted for by you, our customers. Humbled is the only way we could describe it.
In June 2015 we were thrilled to discover we were a finalist for 'Best New Online Retailer' in the Australian Online Retail Awards. We were absolutely delighted with this result being only 6 months old
