The show had so much to offer and we spent the whole time oohing and ahhing at the displays.
Timeless Materials, an Ontario company that takes reclaimed materials from factories, barns, churches and schoolhouses and turns them into something new.
Pure Green Magazine. I loved the old wine crates with herbs growing in them, and the exposed brick wall.
Sheridan Nurseries booth. It was full of beautiful Gerbera daisies (one of my favourites!), fresh herbs and large ferns. They had many of their staff on hand to answer questions about how to start up your garden this spring.
ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) teamed up with the World Wildlife Fund and Loblaws to do an interactive display on Canada's Arctic habitat. They had great displays on fish, polar bears and crustaceans. Loblaws also set up a cooking display on how to prepare fish when buying from sustainable resources. I'm not a fan of fish, but I appreciated all their tips and advice for buying and preparing it.
Moksha Yoga when I lived downtown and love their classes.
Swapsity was on hand for you to trade in your CDs and DVDs and pick up new ones. I wish I hadn't just dropped off a bunch of mine at Goodwill! I would have loved to have picked up some of the films I've never had the chance to see.
Chocosol, was there to give out their delicious hot chocolate. Funny enough, I first posted about them a year ago today when I accidentally came across them at a farmer's market. A year later and I still love it!
Freedom Clothing Collective. I loved all the creative pieces they presented and their eclectic booth. They also featured these adorable bunnies made by Cristina Larsen of Textile Platypus (check out her blog!). I wish I'd found these before Easter!
Carysbelle using environmentally sustainable jute material.
Simply Green Baby and scoop out all their adorable (and green!) products.
How cute are these adorable little animal shirts, especially the monkeys.
I love the stitched look of these crib linens.
Cam Lavers from PepperMills.ca creates these wonderful environmentally friendly pepper mills.
I fell in love with these salt and pepper shakers and I'm kicking myself now that I didn't pick up a pair. They would look great on our dining room table.
There were many other handmade pieces, including these wooden bowls...
Doesn't this make you want smores?
yurts, which are portable housing used by Monogolians. They are trying to promote people in Canada using them as affordable housing, yoga studios and guest houses at the cottage. The construction of their was pretty impressive with a lattice structure on the sides and poles from the top. Aside from the height issue on the sides, they were actually pretty cool.
craving of them. I tried the barbacoa, which was good, but next time I'm going back to my fav, the chicken.
We had a great time in the city and at the show, and we came back with so many great ideas on how to make our home greener. We try our best, but there are always new things to learn!
