Musing on Earth Day 2021

List posts about…

Another Earth Day.  A day to reflect on our behaviour all the other days in the year.  

While the Covid-19 pandemic has certainly dominated our attention the past year we have not lost our focus on the even bigger crisis: our environment.  We have converted our front room to accommodate our curated market items.  We’ve been sourcing products that benefit ecosystems, mitigate climate chaos and provide alternatives to single use plastics.

Today we added a line of products from Ontario based Koaino Soaps:  palm oil free artisanal soaps and plastic free lip balm and deodorant. 

Let us all join hands and support the local, independent champions of the environment like Koaino Soaps founder Rebecca Meagher.  Let’s join her in being the change we want to see.

  1. i have never seen more beautiful packaging in a grocery store.was in sobey’s at tower hill and it stopped me in my tracks…the colors are eye catching…whoever did your marketing was very clever…and myself….an 8o year old women who loves her coffee and birds really enjoyed the combination…i picked up a pk. of the decaf and unfortunately they just had the beans and they have no grinder nor do i…i think i will buy some anyway and take it up to metro and use their grinder…what are they going to do to an 80 year old???

  2. Ha ha ha! As we age we have certain leeway 🙂 Thank you so much for your comments about the packaging. I hope you can get over the grinding issue and are able to enjoy the coffee. It is most gratifying to listen to the oriole singing while I sipping bird friendly coffee… I’m doing it now.
