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.

We all have our favourite recipes. Through trial and error and tinkering we take a standard recipe and make it our own, and it often becomes our signature dish. This is usually because we have added a little something, a secret ingredient that the original recipe didn’t call for. Secret ingredients make cooking fun, especially when your family or guests are trying to guess what you did to make your dish so wonderful. One of our favourite spices is cardamom, and we use it in such diverse applications that it has become an indispensable secret. Continue »
