The Green Living Show is one of our favourites, running this weekend from April 7th – 9th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. It’s such an uplifting event, with over 400 companies presenting ingenious products that are raising the bar to greater sustainability and better living. Here are some of our innovative finds that caught our eye this year:
A revolutionary new appliance that lets you grow fresh produce in your own home. With its vertical design, integrated lighting and top-of-the-line technology, you’ll be growing food year round, from kitchen to plate.
Dalcini Stainless Steel Containers
Made of high-quality stainless steel, these containers have no interior seams, no tight corners, and no complicated lips, seals or clasps (where harmful bacteria get trapped). They are 100% plastic free (including lids, seals, straws) and 100% dishwasher safe.
Crazy D’s All Natural Soda
A fizzy beverage hand-crafted in Toronto, this soda uses the science of nature’s prebiotic root vegetables instead of sugar to achieve a hint of guilt-free sweetness. Available in 3 flavours: Ginga’ Kick, Thrilla In Vanilla, and Rockin’ Rolla Cherry Cola.
Vegan Cashew Cheese by Fauxmagerie Zengarry
All-natural, dairy-free, cashew-based cheeses made in Glengarry, Ontario, featuring fresh ingredients like cold-pressed organic coconut oil, local organic garlic, and fresh herbs and spices. Never heated above 100 degrees F and lacto-fermented, the cheeses aid digestion.
Handmade Yoga Leggings by Inner Fire
Besides offering all of the qualities of standard yoga leggings — such as moisture wicking, breathable, quick drying and a wide waistband that stays put — these leggings, handmade in Vancouver, BC — are made from BPA-free recycled water bottles.
Black Out Bulb
A CSA-approved energy-saving LED that uses its built-in, rechargeable battery, during a power outage. It takes no special effort to install, fits any regular socket, and has an amazing average life of 50,000 hours. Offers soft or bright lighting to create any mood.
