Going zero waste is all about the little changes. Swapping to shampoo and conditioner bars, selecting products based on how much they minimize plastic use and of course selecting more natural products so you know they are sourced more naturally. It's also important to support local not only because everyone around here rocks but in order to reduce your carbon footprint from the product being made to landing at your door.
We have testers of the @routinecream in store so come in and give them a try and kick some more plastics butt! 📸 @lianne.mitchel

MEDIUMS AND LARGES back in the store tomorrow!! @goldilockswraps are amazing and are running out the store quickly. We absolutely love them- definitely a great Christmas present too!
They are super easy to use- wrap your snacks, leftovers or containers and then clean with a cold water wipe over and you're good to go again and again and AGAIN!

Did you know you can compost in your house? All you gotta do is get some compost bags from Canadian Tire (I get Frank's), and locate your closest compost bin! Mine is the carpark in the center of town. Everything is compostable which is super handy!

Travelling with consciousness 🍴 days spent well on the beaches of mexico with a coconut in hand, our awesome gal @krystle_may showing us how done!
Traveling with a metal straw is so easy and convenient and you will find the locals will find it interesting and hilarious! In Spanish the word for no straw is sin popote por favor! Anyone know how to say it in other languages?
