We spoke with Kym Klopp, owner of EcoExistence in Toronto, a resourceful retailer of eco-friendly, green gifts and lifestyle goods. Kym knows saving the planet can seem a little intimidating, but believes together we can make a big difference (and we agree!). We found out how she deals with (and prevents) difficult customers in her store, what gifts are flying off her eco-shelves, and what the woman who has everything (eco) secretly hopes to be gifted this holiday season.
We spoke with Sandra Rotholc, individual, couple, and sex therapist. With 17 years of clinical experience, her practice focuses on marriage counseling, anxiety, depression, communication issues, balancing work/life, and specializes in working with individuals and couples regarding sexual desire issues, pain with intercourse, erectile dysfunction and sexual enrichment. We found out how this mom feels about talking to her sons about sex, what the sign on her forehead says, and what three full days of the deed did for her.
We spoke with Graydon Moffat, creator of GRAYDON Clinical Luxury by Nature. We use and love her line of “crap free” holistic personal care products because she uses incredibly pure ingredients, her products are amazing (and actually work!), she’s local to Toronto, and she’s a great person. We found out how to simplify and save money on quality beauty care, the new fragrance that’s irresistible to men, and natural tips and tools to get the best night’s sleep.
We spoke with the newly wedded (and always awesome) Meghan Telpner, nutritionista extraordinaire, and Josh Gitalis, evidence based clinical nutritionist. This super powered couple is making it easy and exciting to live optimally, and heal and prevent disease through nutrition. We found out why they want you to break the rules, their fave tools for healthy living, and where they go to get “medicine.”
We spoke with Ellen Schwartz, founder of Project Give Back and co-director of Jacob’s Ladder. This super mom is changing the world and inspiring everyone around her to also try and make a big difference. Her 15 year old son Jacob was born with an incurable genetic disease, and the Schwartz’s have made enormous strides by living every day like it’s their last. We found out what you get when you give, the guaranteed way to make a child smile, and why Jake’s beating the odds and how we can too.
We spoke with Daniel Hoffmann, owner and organic farmer at The Cutting Veg (TCV). In addition to growing some of the most delicious + nutritious organic produce (including his famous Global Garlic Project), TCV also offers food coaching, workshops, internship programs, and agri-biz training. Here are Daniel’s thoughts on the art of garlic pairing, trading places with a rabbi, and his asparagus pension plan.
We spoke with Leslie Uke, the creator of HankyBook. Made from 100% organic cotton, with the sweetest designs, these are definitely not your grandma’s handkerchiefs. Here are her thoughts on why reusable nose blowers aren’t as gross as we think, how to avoid a rough ‘red nose’ when you’re sick, and how you can get your own HankyBook for free.
We spoke with Brian Phillips, the super cool CEO and Owner of worldSALON and worldPRODUCTS. His award-winning salon is a recognized leader in cutting edge eco initiatives. We found out how to safely colour greys, what hairstyle he thinks Stephen Harper needs, and which hair product rips out bum hair.
We spoke with Sven Segal (absolutely adorable, but we always fall for a guy with an accent), founder of Po-Zu, in London UK. Po-Zu is a line of biodegradable coconut footwear that is healthy for your feet, safe for the workers, and kind on the environment. Here are his thoughts on treading on coconuts instead of people, how he Po-Zu’s, and eating shoe polish.
We spoke with Jessie Sosnicki (as we do most weeks at the market), one of the coolest certified organic vegetable farmers we know. Sosnicki‘s farming practices leave the soil, air, water, plant life, animals, and people smiling. We found out why local organics cost more than imports, what she gets asked most at the market, and who drives the tractor on this family farm.
