On March 12, 2018, we’re introducing a new, multi-part initiative meant to divert waste from the system while also giving back to the community.

What is a Zero Waste Kit? It’s simply a small collection of essential, reusable, everyday items that — without taking up much space — make a huge difference in your daily contribution to the waste stream.
By carrying these items with you in your backpack, car or while travelling, you can save plastic grocery bags, paper coffee cups, paper napkins, plastic utensils and plastic straws from going in the trash while you’re out and about! Add a couple of glass or metal containers if you have the space and use them in place of takeout containers to make even more of an impact.

It's January. Maybe the weather is great but it's probably not, and the kids have been stuck inside for an extended period of time. If you are a caregiver, teacher, parent or grandparent who is spending time with kids on a daily basis, you know that these kids have energy to expend and you need to help them with that (ideally without losing any of your hair). So let's talk about some essential oils and blends that you can diffuse and maybe get the kids engaged.

The idea of opening a “refillery,” as we’re calling it, has been rolling around in the back of my mind for a long time now. Similar to the idea of Bulk Barn, where you can buy all sorts of bulk ingredients for cooking, and even bring your own containers, and modelled after amazing refill concept stores in Vancouver and Toronto, The Apothecary in Inglewood now offers refill services on everything from clays to salts, from essential oils and carrier oils to laundry detergent, from herbs to shampoo and deodorant.
