February...the month of love and the border between winter and spring.

Now is the perfect time to assess your household waste. 

Isn't it odd how 2020 seemed like the year that would never end, and yet the first month of 2021 just flew by in the blink of an eye? I don't recall even one person mentioning their New Year's Resolutions! With all the confusion over how to keep safe during a global pandemic it can be easy to slip into bad habits of convenience and forget to pay attention to how many single use disposable items we are consuming. It's not too late to resolve to live more environmentally conscious. And there is no time like the present to do a home assessment and find where you can reduce your waste!

How to perform a waste audit:

  • Collect all your household trash for one week or more. 
  • Audit the trash you have collected by dumping it out and sorting it into piles of "like things together".
  • Make note of items that are more abundant than others. Those will be your biggest challenge to reduce. 
  • Using the rules of "R" (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Refill, Recycle, Repair, Rot) to access your waste and come up with some action steps to help you better avoid the waste altogether or better repurpose or recycle it in the future. 
We are excited to announce that we now carry Kind Human beverage bottles!

These heavy duty double walled bottles made out of 18/18 Pro-Food Grade Stainless Steel with a copper lining. Your beverage stays cold for up to 24 hours and hot drink stays toasty warm for up to 12 hours. Available in  20oz, 22oz and 32oz colourful metal bottles are made to be used with both hot and cold liquids. 

Switching to something as easy as a reusable bottle can help to save hundreds of plastic bottles per year. The best part is for each bottle purchased Kind Human cleans up a pound of garbage from beaches around the world such as Canada, USA, Nicaragua and The Philippines. We love what this Vancouver Island owned company is doing for our oceans!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Ahh February. Thank goodness it is the shortest month. Although it's technically still winter, and the days are dark and chilly, the sun is setting just a little later and hinting at the spring to come. The month of love does allow for a cheerful window display, full of whimsical Swedish Dish Cloths covered in hearts and flowers, and all sorts of other reusable items in shades of pink. It's the perfect time to rejuvenate the body and spirit with a little self-care of relaxing bubble baths and  scrubs with natural bristle body brushes, jade face rollers or even a pink safety razor for the silkiest legs. Check out our on line store for our full selection of self-care items.
