The word sustainability has become widely used and that's good. It seems to be a natural reaction to things moving around us in a straight line of growth. When you say sustain it means to use and reuse a thing over and over again - to move in a circle. Now how does this concept translates to All The Good Things From BC's daily operations?
We are doing our best to mindfully curate products with timeless designs and often with more than one use. It often means that the products are made out of durable materials, or that they can be repurposed.
In more than a year of it's existence AGBC did not have to buy a packaging box. We get them from friends or simply reuse ones that make its way to our household. AGBC started using noissue compostable mailer too. They are great way to reduce unnecessary plastic around us.
At last but not least, AGBC strives to work with like-minded businesses. We are happy to support and sell things made with purpose, intention and love. Things that are made of durable, sustainably sourced materials such as cotton or bamboo.
Whenever possible we are trying to use BC or Canadian companies and thus increase demand for such products/services. E.g. our logo was designed by Chris Wilson or the canvas by Justin LeRose are printed by Wind Studio.
We take our commitment to sustainability seriously and act on it. By shopping with us you are helping to create a world where nature comes first and more and more people are becoming greener in their consumer choices. For a small business the message of sustainability is easier and more natural to deliver than it is for a mammoth corporation.
Thank you for being sustainable with us!
