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.

Organic Week, Get Involved

Canada’s National Organic Week, September 7-13, 2020 Organic food: it’s better for our planet, better for our health, and better for the farmers. Buying organic can seem like a big investment, but it is all about value. Something to keep in mind: Organic means that your produce is likely “kinder”, but it does not mean “better” and does not guarantee quality. Not all organic food is created equal.

The Air We Share

We all share EVERYTHING … how can that not motivate you to care more?  As we all go “back” … to school, to restaurants, to offices and gyms … as we will start to spend more time inside, as the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler, we want to focus on air … the stuff we breathe … something we all share.

Phase 3! Thoughts And Ideas

For those of you who have been receiving our monthly roundups for years, you might remember us sharing about the Wrong Bus Syndrome … a simple-yet-powerful analogy for how and why we find ourselves headed in the wrong direction by Wangari Maathai, a 2004 Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Everything Sucks

Everything sucks … if that is how you choose to feel about it! It seems as though our problems (individually and collectively) all come from our inability to think and act rationally, with consistency. Everything is a choice … it is our decision how we choose to face our days, even when we choose to believe that everything sucks.

Not All Masks Are Created Equal

The Government of Canada tells us “the best thing we can do to prevent the spread of COVID -19 is to wash our hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.” When it’s not possible, consider using a good hand sanitizer. We should also stay at home if we’re feeling ill, try to maintain a 2-metre physical distance from others when we leave the home, and “when physical distancing cannot be maintained, consider wearing a non-medical mask or homemade face covering, and avoid…
