UNDA- helping Mexican communities! These bags are made from recycled cement bags and treated with an eco-friendly seal so they are water repellent!
They donate 3% of their profits to pay for the education of those less advantaged in Mexican communities.
Come check them out and support the cause! They're a great present πŸ˜‰

The amount of coffee cups used in a day is insane, estimating over 14 BILLION in a year (just in Canada).
Why is this such an issue?
Firstly most people do not and will not properly recycle coffee cups. Most end up in land fill and for those that are put into recycling- well they actually cannot be recycled! The cups are lined with PLA a type of plastic that requires a specific recycling system that we unfortunately do not have.
So eventually this coffee cups just continue to pile up and fill our landfill adding to the plastic program. Did you know all the plastic ever created still exists today?
This Wednesday join @cuplibrarybanff from 8-10pm for some live music, a free drink, snacks and pool at High Rollers to learn more about this problem and our proposal for a Banff cup deposit system. Tickets are $20 hurry we are selling them fast!
Thanks for the rad pic @ahgareesh
