Get FUNCHed UP!

FUNCH lunch bags

Spring is right around the corner (and March Break is just about over!), which means there's still a few months of school lunches to be made, carried to school, shoved in a locker and eventually consumed. While we do have lots of good things to go IN to lunch bags, people often come to us looking for a more environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional lunch bag. We finally have just the thing.

Meet FUNCH.

These beautiful and durable bags are made of insulated Tyvek printed with a gorgeous selection of designs and come in two sizes - each with a Velcro closure. So not only will these bags keep your lunch fresh and secure until lunchtime, because they're made from Tyvek, they're strong, recyclable, washable and tear and water resistant. Look for them on the rack right inside the door to your right.

A Fresh Start

Green's Your Colour and Que Water Bottles

If you're anything like us, the last couple of weeks have included a fair bit of indulgence. And fair enough, we all need that from time to time - though the evidence is clear that the planet itself suffers from our excesses often more than we do ourselves. 

While New Year's Resolutions can come from a genuine desire to change or improve, more often they are designed to atone for our exorbitances, which is perhaps why they fail so often: as the memory of our pleasures fades, so too does the impulse to limit them.

So here's a resolution that's simple to keep, good for you regardless of your susceptibility to indulgence and good for the planet to boot: carry a re-usable bottle and drink more water!
Every minute, one million plastic bottles are purchased worldwide, and 91% of all plastic isn’t recycled. 180 different animal species have been documented to ingest plastics containing BPA, many of which are permanently injured or die as a result of the poison. The Pacific Institute suggests the production of bottled water takes 2000 times the energy required to produce tap water. And Toronto tap water is some of the very best in the world - subject to far more rigorous testing standards than bottled water.

Green's Your Colour is a Burlington Ontario-based company that offers triple-insulated bottles in 350ml, 500ml and 800ml sizes in a variety of designs (Island Life and DinoStomper are pictured at left) and the makers of the lightweight que collapsable silicone containers (pictured at right)  donate 10% of profits to the Rainforest Trust so it's a win win win for you, the planet and your resolutions!

And now, we're offering BOTH lines of these handy containers at 20% off! Quantities are limited.
