Here’s Part 2 in my series, where I share with you small businesses that you probably haven’t heard of – but that deserve to be “found”. I focus on products and services that are doing their part to lower their footprint, while delivering greener, healthier services and products to their communities (and beyond). You can read about the jeweler, baby wearing expert, and resale clothing shop I featured in my first installment here.
Here are 3 more amazing businesses that should be on your radar for skin care, home renovations, and shopping for baby.
Skin to Skin Goods
You have to check out the latest online store focusing on natural, small-batch hand-crafted, made in Canada skin-care products for the whole family. Skin to Skin Goods specially curate their collection so you can shop with confidence that you’re getting a great product. I love the focus on Canadian products, made with love – by shopping with Skin to Skin you’re supporting two great businesses at the same time. Whether you’re shopping for someone special, or looking to treat yourself, check them out!
Living in a smaller footprint is often easier said than done, especially with kids in the mix. Designer Deborah Mesher of Drole House helps work with the space you have, through reimagining, renovations, and additions that aim to address the needs of her clients without having to upsize. There are many benefits to working within a smaller space – less to clean, less to heat and cool, and ultimately less wasteful. Drole House brings this mindset to their projects and the best part is, they focus on a collaborative approach so the final design is actually what the client needs.
Go Green Baby
The funny thing about the internet is how it can connect people who otherwise would never cross paths. I stumbled upon Go Green Baby in one of my internet searches and fell in love with the shop’s story and mission. Located in Kingston, ON, Go Green Baby has been in business for 8 years – which is impressive in itself – and specializes in eco-friendly and healthy products for kids and home.
