THE BORDEN SCRAPBOOK

Our scrapbook isn’t just a place to showcase our rants, raves, healthy highlights and special projects, it’s actually our method of presenting, arranging and preserving what we do. For our small but mighty team, we do a lot. It might seem disjointed and unfocused, but trust us, everything we take on makes sense to us, and when it doesn’t we pull it out of our scrapbook. We love pasting in new finds and resources, inspiring people who are true forces for good (we call them “mosquitos” for a reason), things that outrage us, interesting perspective and lots of food for thought. We hope you will flip and click and scroll and make good use of what we share – that is why we spend the time to share. It’s organized chaos, and we hope it will propel you to be curious, explore and find solutions for you to make your everyday a little better, no matter what you are after or just happen upon.

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.


OUR {UN}BLOG

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.

Not All Website Themes Are Created Equal

Are effective and beautiful websites expensive? It depends. It doesn’t have to be. We are so often met with “I can’t afford a great website”, or “I’ve been working on my website and ready to launch soon”, and, “I don’t have time to deal with writing copy or hiring designers”, and we feel this … we are a small business too. Budgets and bandwidth are not abundant and available! Your customers are online, so you need to be too. Even if you don’t have…

Joey Storm

Every week we feature a good human from TWIC. This week’s member highlight is  Joey Storm … Joey is my favourite child, but please don’t tell Ryan and Andy. 🙂 She is my middle child, born in 2002, and I call her our family’s hero. If you have been to any of our live sessions or listened to any of my interviews about how I “got into” wellness, Joey is a big part of that story. As an infant, she challenged me to really get curious and reject convention that…

Not All Eggs Are Created Equal

Do all of the eggs you buy look exactly the same in the carton? How could that possibly be? When I buy eggs (which I very selectively do as part of my Lisa-tarian lifestyle), I buy them exclusively from humans that I can speak with and question at my local market … humans that I have grown to know, and trust … those who smile when you are discerning and ask questions, and who pride themselves on what they bring to market, and to your table. Eggs can be super nourishing. But…  NOT ALL EGGS ARE CREATED…

Monique Chan

Every week we feature a good human from TWIC. This week’s member highlight is Monique Chan … Monique is on a mission to revolutionize our food systems (thank you, Monique!). She is the Founder of Bruized where she creates wholesome plant-based “granola”, cookies, and limited edition products from up-cycled ingredients and imperfect produce that are unnecessarily discarded across the supply chain. So much food goes to waste, and instead of being thrown out for being ugly or having a surplus, Monique…
