This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

World Water Day

We fill our pots, bathtubs, sports bottles, and swimming pools with it. We wash the car, the pets, our bodies and the dishes with it. We use it in manufacturing, and rely on it for power.

9 Ways to Be the Solution

If you are not part of the solution, then unfortunately, you may be part of the problem. With so many things in this world that you know should, or wish could, be different, take the time to find what is truly important to you and begin making that change. (more…)

Singles Hurt The Environment

Like with any relationship, it takes time and effort to develop a good one. How do you “meet” the perfect reusable for your lifestyle or the more intelligent multi-purpose products? Like with any hook up, ask your friends, colleagues and family to be “set up” or browse websites and visit stores that offer reusables and eco-intelligent products.

Not all Bananas are Created Equal

IWM: Jaime Slavin

We spoke with Jaime Slavin, Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian, food educator, and an advocate for health and well being. We found out how she made a huge shift in her own diet, where she likes to shop and eat in Toronto, and the secret ingredient to living with a partner who eats differently than you do.  


Things Every Entrepreneur Should Know

After more than 23 years as an entrepreneur running Borden Communications, I have definitely learned a lot of lessons the “hard” way – everything from managing office systems to over-extending my trust to clients.
