Free Workshop: My Sustainable Life

 

Our beautiful tote bags are made by HeyJute an innovative and environmentally conscious Canadian company. Jute is an all- natural plant fibre, similar to hemp or flax, like you’ve seen in burlap bags and ropes. It is inexpensive to produce and requires minimal processing, so that’s good for the environment too. So we are very excited to announce an in-store workshop with VJ Bala, owner of Hey Jute, as he shares green living tips and talks about easy ways to live more sustainably.
