Greener Goals…Right at Home

Written by Dolly on March 30th, 2014

A new month, a new Greener Goal but first this Organic Household Tip

Love the smell of clothes straight out of the dryer?
Give your entire home that fresh sent! Before you vacuum, remove the canister or bag. Insert two eco friendly dryer sheets into the canister or bag. Replace them and then vacuum your carpets like normal. An awesome, easy and green way to have a fresh scented home!

Now for April’s Greener Goal

Remember the term We Deliver, well it never sounded so right as it does with Green Earth Organics (GEO).

GEO is a home and office organic grocery delivery service. You order what you want/need/crave online and GEO will deliver to you saving you time; time spent driving to get groceries, time spent finding parking spots, and time spent in lineups.

GEO strives to provide their customers with the freshest and very best organic products available, from 100% Certified Organic fruit, vegetables, and other grocery products plus so many environmentally friendly products “that make it easier for [their] customers to tread lighter on our planet.”

Greener Goals : : A fresh new start.

Written by Dolly on February 1st, 2014

In 2013, we featured men and women whose contagious spirit and ways of living, have inspired many. In 2014 we would like to continue to celebrate individuals, products and forward thinking companies who will motivate us toward carrying out our own Greener Goals in the new year. Focusing on eco-conscious living is a valuable way to make a difference in our lives, and for the future. Over the next 12 months we will share with you the names of products and their owners, who against all odds with the looming pharmaceutical giants, take their natural home-based businesses to the local market. Sourcing only ethically produced raw ingredients, and setting new standards in consumer exchange, are some of the ways that these companies embody the positive change needed to save this planet, and ourselves.

Our first featured company is called THE SOAP DISPENSARY located on Main St. See how this inspiring company is working towards greener goals in their community.

The Soap Dispensary is all about clean; a cleaner environment, cleaning products and even their store front is spotless! Located on Vancouver’s Main Street (right by 20th Avenue) The Soap Dispensary specializes in eco-friendly bath products, cleaning supplies, pure essential oils, Natural brushes and much more! As ambassadors for a greener tomorrow, the Soap Dispensary will gladly fill any previously used containers with their products.
