Don’t listen to Kermit, it’s not that hard to be green these days, especially when you visit the Green Living Show.

Full disclosure the show is one of my clients, but the fabulous exhibitors below are not (or not yet anyway LOL)!

It always amazes me when I walk the show floor every year and stumble across a company that is this awesome and that I never heard of until now. Plus, they are helping minimize our carbon footprint, and offering a more sustainable and eco-friendly product that works and in many cases looks super chic.

I am a firm believer that if a natural product works as well as something toxic, why wouldn’t you change?!  It is really a no brainer.

Take a look at some of the awesome finds below that impressed me this year (and put a bit of a dent in my wallet). One step at a time, these all-natural finds are turning me into a healthier and  more environmentally thoughtful person:

  • ORANGE FISH –  a shop with uniquely curated products that make you look and feel good. If you are looking for fun and functional items that are made in Canada, have a Canadian theme or you want something that provides a bit of inspiration then be sure to contact them.

  • ROK CORK – Not new, as I’ve written about them before, but their s/s16 collection is stunning. For those that may not have seen my earlier posts, all products are made from 100% sustainable, lightweight and eco-friendly cork. Seriously, cork!

  • BEE 23 – Natural skin care, body care and scents. The products are fabulous for every skin type and developed by an adorable woman!

  • REVELO FLEX E-BIKE – The Revelo FLEX is designed for extreme portability and convenience without sacrificing ride quality. It is foldable and electric – traveling up to approximately 30 kilometres before needing a charge.

  • ALVEOLE – Neighbourhood honey made from local honey colonies. So far there are 3 neighbourhoods in Toronto that are producing honey (Junction, Annex and Downtown Core). The company is taking reservations NOW for beehives for the summer, which they will install and care for. Did you know bees impact 1 out of every 3 bites you eat?!

  • JOCO CUP – Made from high quality, non-porous borosilicate glass, the JOCO cup is a ridiculously stylish and smart solution to enjoying your everyday brew without beating up your taste buds or Mother Nature.
