  • Making organic clothing the next organic food

    Making organic clothing the next organic food

    For the past 5 years, there has been a visible movement towards consuming organic products in North America. In Canada, organic is regulated by the government and must follow national standards. There are over 3780 organic farms in Canada covering 953 thousand hectares of land. Supporting local organic farmers and producers is more than just a trend it’s a new way of thinking, shopping and eating for young Canadians.

    Total annual retail sales of certified organic products in Canada are approximately 5.4 billion up from $3.5 billion in 2012, and 66% of Canadian shoppers are purchasing organic items weekly. Plus, 80% of organic shoppers make organic purchases at regular grocery stores. That means that retailers are also making the change so organic products are more available to Canadian consumers.

The Cannabis Sativa is probably the most common type of cannabis in the world and also offers the most uses.  The usage of hemp fiber as materials for clothing is not something new. Hemp fiber has been used for thousands of years. Our ancestors used hemp 10,000 years ago because of its extremely high fiber content and multiple uses.

  • Being a mother

    Being a mother

    I'm a Mom. Since my second child, this statement has taken on its full meaning. Not that I did not feel like a mom before giving birth to my second child, but because this path has continued to deepen significantly. I am a perfectionist, which despite the good sides of this trait of personality; can be very invasive at times and can be a huge weight for the people who surround me.
