Founder Story #10 | Salt Spring Island Candle Co.

Jay was born with wax in his blood. The son of a candle maker of almost 40 years, he has been working with wax and wicks since he was eight years old. After almost 20 years of assisting the family business in making beautiful hand carved paraffin candles, he decided to venture off and create something completely different. 
With SSI Candle, Jay strives to bring a little bit of the quality and beauty synonymous with Salt Spring Island, into people's homes. Living and working on that beautiful island infuses a little bit of magic into everything produced there. 
Salt Spring Island Candle Co. uses only 100% pure, GMO free soy wax. They scent their candles with the highest quality pure essential oils and natural, cruelty-free fragrance oils.
They approach their candle scents from a perfumer’s perspective, carefully layering their creations based on a balance of top, middle and base notes, with the goal of creating fragrances that are complex and unique

Founder Story #8 | @mosscreekwoolworks 
The idea for Moss Creek Wool Works began when Leah's 8 month old son developed full body hives after doing laundry at a laundromat. That prompted Leah to do some extensive research regarding the hazards of laundry chemicals and our consumption of unnecessary chemicals in our everyday life. The line of Pure Wool Dryer Balls was launched after much experimentation. Moss Creek strove to find the highest quality of wool that would felt into a finely formed ball but also dense enough to give it some weight to tumble around. Pure felted wool dryer balls absorb moisture in your dryer which helps maintain the humidity level. The balls bounce around creating air circulation between your clothing. The result is softer clothes that dried faster with less wrinkles and static cling. They eliminate the need for dryer sheets and fabric softener, without the use of chemicals harmful to both people and the earth.

Founder Story #9 | @nooksdesign

Nooks Design began with Ruthy and Louis-Phillipe visiting local Kelowna, BC thrift stores. It was a cold December day and there was an abundance of outdated wool sweaters that were soon to be discarded. They saw this as the perfect opportunity to make this wool into something new and beautiful. Their daughter Anouk was turning one and about to take her first steps, so they needed footwear that could keep her feet warm and give her the confidence to start exploring. The combination of the soft and breathable wool from the upcycled sweater and a sole made from a leather purse provided the slip-resistant and stylish solution they were looking for. And so the name Nooks was born (“Anouk’s booties”). One year after the launch of the business, a line of children’s clothing was designed and brought into production, starting with custom dresses and skirts. Today, vintage fabrics as well as upcycled wool and leather are being made into a variety of dresses, skirts, rompers, sun suits, bonnets, bloomer shorts and accessories; of course, the little wool booties that started it all are still available too!

Founder Story #7 | @mattercompany 
At Matter Company, they embrace a holistic approach to personal care which recognizes the relationship between our natural environment and our physical and emotional well being.

They began with the simple intention of working with the healing ways of plants. Building upon an apprenticeship in Therapeutic Herbalism, their extensive experience growing, wildcrafting, harvesting and formulating herbal preparations has resulted in an intimate understanding of the medicinal power of herbs. It is an understanding which recognizes the ability of herbs to not only heal us physically, but to nourish our mind and spirit as well.

Armed with knowledge about plants and their medicinal properties, Denise Williams, founder of Matter Company began experimenting with creating skincare products that were not then available on the market and that were good for the body – both inside and out. She began whipping up skin salves and first aid ointments in her kitchen, using all-natural ingredients and without chemicals like parabens and petrolatum, and gave the products to friends and family as gifts. The resulting skin-soothing formulas, powered by all-natural ingredients such as shea butter, plant and herb extracts and scented with aromatic essential oils, were such a hit that Williams decided to launch a full-fledged natural skincare line focused on the healing power of herbs. Thus, Matter Company was born.

Founder Story #6 | @kapuluancoconut 
Every once in awhile, we hear the story of an entrepreneur whose story is so compelling, whose spirit is so resilient, and whose product does so much good, that we can’t help but share it. This is the story of Kapuluan Coconut and its founder Will Lauder.
About 4 years ago Will was packing his bags for a surf trip to the Philippines when Typhoon Haiyan, the most powerful storm ever to hit land devastated the Philippines. Will decided to leave his surfboard at home and instead brought a duffle bag of water filters. He made his way to the rural villages of Eastern Samar which had been cut off from relief for weeks, and spent his time delivering relief goods and clean water with a local group. With all the destruction, the one thing that touched him the most was the overwhelming amount of destroyed coconut palm trees. For the people of eastern samar, the coconut is their way of life. With no coconuts there was no food, no soap, no jobs, and no money. Unfortunately, his trip was cut short due to an infection, but as he was leaving he received a bottle of raw coconut oil from one of the locals as a gift. He tried it and soon it replaced almost everything in his drop-kit; he used it for moisturizer, shaving oil, hair conditioner, sunscreen, lip balm, bug repellant; he ate it and he cooked with it. He had no idea that Coconut Oil had these properties and his obsession began. 
Early into his research, Will realized that 90% of coconut oil is derived through an unsustainable process that harms the environment, consumer, and producer. So he found a method of hand making the finest quality raw coconut oil, in rural communities. The final product is produced by the farmers themselves. Since the process is closely connected with the community, much of the returns flow back through, creating significant development. 
Kapuluan Coconut Oil is a Simple, Natural product of The Finest Quality.

Founder Story #5 | @goodbyn 
Goodbyn was frustrated with the amount of waste that was created by packing lunch: everything was going to landfill — the lunchbox, plastic bags, drink boxes, as well as uneaten food. Goodbyn was founded in 2009 by designers and parents manufacturing products that eliminate the need for one-time-use packaging and will never end up as landfill, 100% recyclability. Since their first sale in August of 2009, they have sold close to 1 million Goodbyn products domestically and internationally. By their estimation Goodbyn products have kept hundreds of millions of items out of landfill. They can't precisely calculate how much garbage this is in terms of pounds but it does make them smile to think about it. They thoroughly enjoy the challenge of creating innovative products that are well-designed, make on-the-go eating a breeze and put smiles on the faces of our customers.

Founder Story #4 | @elliaessentials “TAKE A BREATH. THEN FORGET THE REST.”
A change is in the air. And that change is Ellia. Born by the wellness experts at HoMedics, Ellia is a line full of premium diffusers and 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. Use them together to reduce your stress, boost your mental clarity., and soothe your body and mind. 
With your wellness in mind, Ellia is meticulous about every step of their process. To make sure each individual seed reaches its absolute potential, they carefully and consciously choose the region where it will thrive. Then, they work with a global network of farmers. When their plants are at their peak, they’re harvested so they can collect their natural essential oils. They’re either cold-pressed or steam-distilled, and then they’re rigorously tested to ensure every batch is 100% pure. To protect these precious qualities, their oils are sealed in premium, violet bottles. Not only does violet glass offer the greatest degree of protection from damaging UV rays, it guarantees their freshness and potency. And — so you always know exactly where your oils come from — they list the origin on every bottle.

Founder Story #3 | @dans_le_sac 
Two 20-something friends, one freelancing as a yoga teacher, photographer and painter, the other studying education at university with a passion for the environment and food decided to start making bread bags. Having been in the habit taking a pillowcase to the corner bakery, they realized there had to be a more practical and esthetic solution. They scoured the internet, but no one had a product out there that fit their criteria. Equipped with only a sewing machine and plenty of naivete, they went to Montreal's famous Rue Chabanel to buy fabric. They then began producing the prototype of what is now their reusable bread bag. Embracing entrepreneurship was a thrilling and surprising (and stressful) adventure for these two young women, who had no prior business experience. Although they're still at the learning stage, they're having loads of fun! 
No longer studying at university, Laurie is now focusing her efforts on their flourishing company. Meanwhile, Stéphanie has to turn down certain contract requests because demand is so high and people are so receptive to this new lifestyle choice (YEAH!).

Founder Story #1 | @abeego 
In 2008 Toni asked the question, "what did we do before plastic wrap for food preservation?" In a desire to keep food fresh, Toni invented Abeego, the original beeswax wrap on two founding principles. Firstly, it’s logical. It breathes. If living food needed to be wrapped in airtight wrap the rind, peel or skin would be airtight. It’s not. Secondly, it’s inspirational. It looks good, feels good, smells good and fosters a healthier relationship with food. Welcome to the future of food wrap.

On the go! Coffee on the go is best enjoyed in a glass takeaway cup. JOCO cups are made from high quality borosilicate glass making them light weight and thermal shock resistant. Their superior durability also makes them dishwasher and microwave safe. Borosilicate glass is non-porous so it wont taint the flavour of your favourite beverage. Enjoy the purity of a JOCO glass reusable cup. #coffeesesh #ecofriendly #eco #ecolife #korudistribution
