Dreaming of a Green Christmas?
We have everything to need to start
or continue a low waste, less plastic lifestyle.
Bamboo is one of the most environmentally friendly crops that exists today. Bamboo is a plant, not a tree. A bamboo plantation has a yield up to 25 times that of a forest. Bamboo does not require pesticides or artificial fertilizers.
For each product sold, a part of the sales are given to Compensation CO2 to plant trees in Canada.
Always wash your straws with warm water and soap and the included washing brush after each use.
Make sure to let them air dry before storing them in a closed space or putting them in a bag or travel case.
Do not leave your straws in water or liquid for many hours because this may damage them or reduce their lifespan.
Do not put them in the dishwasher.

Welcome to Shades of Green, I’m so glad you’re here!
When I opened the store in 2009 there wasn’t many options for sustainable, earth friendly products in our community. It was a bit hard at first to source these kinds of products but now with so many people getting on board with the Zero waste movement there’s so much more available. We love to support Local and Canadian Made products as much as possible but when we do source products made outside of North America we make sure they are Made responsibly in Fair Trade practices.
Thank you for visiting the shop and wherever you are on your earth loving journey we are here to help. Small changes everyday can make a big impact.
