Proud to be a dirt bag 😁
Huge thanks to @kicheko_designs for turning me on to these amazing compostable, eco-friendly comPOST mailer bags from @betterpackagingco !!! 🙌🏻 I’ve just ordered a batch and very soon all retail shipments of Mountain Moves clothing sent out from Canmore will be in these non-plastic mailers (don’t worry they are still waterproof 💦 to protect the clothes from the elements during shipping 😍). Made from corn starch with a binding agent, they will biodegrade in the compost pile 🌱 so throw it in with your food scraps and watch it break down naturally 😁
We can all do our part to reduce the amount of single use plastic that ends up in landfill, and this is one small step I’m taking that is SO worth the investment over cheaper packaging options 😍
New on the blog - 6 Canadian Made Products to Aid an Eco-friendly Lifestyle. We can all reduce our footprint for 2019, even if it's one baby step at a time. Do you have any more ideas for items we can replace with greener alternatives? Blog link in bio, & photo by the lovely @olsenolsendesign of their awesome dryer balls!
Our first magazine article got us feeling 🤩🥳

Broke in to this big cherry slab over the Christmas break for a project. I had this tree milled over the summer. It's 30" wide at the crotch and 8' long. Unfortunately there was also lots of rot in the pith (core) of the tree.
This particular project was the first time I worked with green (wet) wood. Because this slab was right from the middle of the tree, the wood was mostly quarter sawn and very stable which meant that the wood didn't warp like crazy as it dried.
How cute are these! Check out @wiggly_feet and grab your baby a pair to keep warm and stay fashionable this winter. Use code OLIVIA10 to save .
Another day to grab your Wiggly Feet and keep those toes warm! .
Each Wiggly Feet footwear product is made with a waterproof, non-slip sole for indoor or outdoor (when there isn’t a foot of snow) use. .
When you slip your hand inside these puppies your hand is enveloped in soft minky and a Sherpa sole to keep those feet cozy, and provide cushioning for the wee walkers. .
We also include a toe guard on each of our shoes to protect the toes of little crawlers, and the shoe from toe stub-bers when on pavement. .
Wiggly Feet are great for all seasons and we always stock non-minky options for our friends south of us during our cold winters up here. 😜
Me looking at this -35C like 🥶 I’m actually so happy my @trulocal box came just in time for Canadian winter to start so I don’t have to go outside. 😂
As some of you may know I’ve changed my eating habits quite a bit recently, and I feel significantly better than I ever have before. Many of the meals I used to eat made me feel bloated and slow. I got sick of it and I started reading more about nutrition from many different perspectives until I found what resonated with me and made me feel good.
As someone who is passionate about quality food and helping the environment, I’m proud to say truLocal delivers locally-sourced meat across Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia.
I ordered a seafood box which contained wild-caught sockeye salmon and Icelandic cod. Their fish is caught by hook-and-line, packaged in Kitchener, and not to mention MSC-certified (which means they ensure environmentally friendly and humane fishing practices). And if fish isn’t your thing, they have 40 other types of meat sourced sustainably from farms across Canada. 🇨🇦 -

First, thank you for the amazing sale yesterday! I am always blown away by your support! There are still a few pre-orders spots for travel mugs and a few things available.
Seconds, this is a video showing the "lotus effect" of the @liquid_quartz_sealer. I applied it on half the platter, let it cure, then put water to show you the difference between the treated and untreated side.
Liquid Quartz info:
The first of his kind, non toxic, water based sealer allows to turn unglazed ware into waterproof, food safe, and highly stain resistant functional ware. It creates an invisible breathable, but impermeable protective barrier.
Made from SiO2 (Silicon dioxide/ crystal quartz): a naturally occurring oxide and one of the most abundant minerals in the earth's crust. SiO2 is most commonly used in the production of glass, ceramic glazes and and in all clay bodies.
