I am super excited to announce that greenmunch.ca is partnering with me as my transportation sponsor for Blissdom Canada!
Never heard of greenmunch? They are a small Canadian retailer based out of Sherwood Park, Alberta (just outside of Edmonton), that specializes in eco-friendly products. I love that their catalogue is not just a repeat of the same products that I have seen at other Canadian eco-retailers. They have assembled some unique products, including a line of eco-friendly party supplies and compostable dinnerware. They carry disposable wooden cutlery, disposable plates that are made out of dried palm leaves, paper straws, cotton and kraft paper treat bags, a colourful assortment of baker’s twine, and paper-twist ribbon (and coming soon — Washi (rice paper) masking tape). Basically everything you need to throw an eco-friendly party, and at really reasonable prices.
Let me introduce you to a few of their products:
This fantastic stuff is Aspenware disposable cutlery.
It’s disposable cutlery, made from wood rather than plastic. It is completely bio-degradable and compostable, and the price is in line with high-end plastic cutlery (a 12 piece set costs 2.99, and they are available in bulk for lower). Until browsing through greenmunch’s site I had no clue there was such as thing as disposable wooden cutlery. I think this is pretty darn awesome. On top of being an eco-friendly choice, it’s also beautiful to look at, and I love that they are made right here in Canada.
When I look at these cute kraft paper bags what immediately comes to my mind is treat sacks for a kid’s birthday party, but several of the designs are also rather elegant and would work nicely as anniversary or wedding favours. Again they seem rather reasonably priced, starting as low as $5.25 for 20, or $16 for 100.
This Hydros filtering water bottle is a pretty nifty product. It allows you to filter tap or drinking fountain water while on the go. Granted I haven’t tried it myself yet, but I think it’s a rather cool concept.
Greenmunch also carries candles, reuseable bags, lunch containers, skin & body care items, organic cotton clothing, cleaning supplies, and much much more. You really need to browse through their website to get an idea of the many neat-o green things they carry. I also have a greenmunch giftcard giveaway coming up, so you can take a look at their website and start daydreaming now as to what you’d like to pick up.
So what do you think guys? Impressed with their stuff? I’m super excited to have found another cool Canadian eco-retailer and very happy to be partnering with them for Blissdom Canada.
