4 Criteria we use in sourcing our products

4 Criteria we use in sourcing our products

When sourcing products for our shop, we have very strict criteria (some of the highest standards in the market!).

Here is a short overview of what we look for when sourcing products for our community:

1) Earth Friendly - How do our products support a safer and more sustainable future? We want our products to be working towards a safer and healthier future for our children.

2) Organic - First and foremost we source for organic. We want to bring you as many organic products as we can. 

3) Natural and free of harmful chemicals - While the item may not be organic, it might be natural and sometimes that is our only choice or the best we can offer. It can often be hard to find products made with organic ingredients or materials. We also take into consideration that often organic items can cost significantly more and we want to balance that for families who cannot afford organic (which there are so many!). 

4) Fair Trade or Fair Pay - We are constantly on the search for brands and companies that care about where and how their products are made. Many of our brands are fair trade or have similar policies in place within their company. We want to ensure that the people that make our products are working in safe conditions, being paid fairly and are receiving benefits the same as you and I.

We also try our best to search for Canadian brands and Canadian made products. We are confident that you and your family will be happy with all the products we offer. Be sure to ask us about what you are looking for and we will be happy to share the stories behind the brand and help you find the perfect fit!

Wool, Glorious Wool!

Do you think of wool as itchy, hard to clean, and only for the coldest of winter days? We used to too. Luckily we've come to learn a lot about wool over the years, and we now know that there's more to the wool story. Like many other natural materials, how the wool is processed and what breed of sheep it comes from can be a game changer in terms of the final product.
