You're Invited: Lavish & Lime's Grand Opening Warehouse Event

We're making the leap from cyberspace to real space with the opening of our new Lavish & Lime warehouse showroom in the funky Lower Lonsdale area of Vancouver's North Shore (272 East 1st Street) on Saturday, November 27th.

A special event will be held on opening day from 9am to 1pm - and you're invited! Local customers will have the opportunity to see in person the latest eco products from around the world and enjoy special discounts, free gifts, samples plus a natural skincare expert will be on hand to discuss toxins and our skin. The event coincides with eco boutique Lavish & Lime's third anniversary.

"We're excited to be able to give local customers the chance to see, touch, feel for themselves the products we sell online," said Lavish & Lime co-founder, Colin Campbell. "The more information people have, the more informed their purchases can be and from our experience, that means greater customer satisfaction every time."

Come help support the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre! Part proceeds from the opening event on November 27th will go towards supporting this unique facility - a fantastic local resource for connecting kids with nature.

We hope you can join us! Visit Lavish & Lime to preview our eco collection for Christmas 2010.

Eco-Friendly Wheat Golf Tees for Greener Golfing

While we wouldn't suggest dining on them, we would suggest outfitting any golf lovers you know with our biodegradable Wheatware golf tees. These eco-friendly golf tees are made of surplus wheat and will biodegrade in 90 days in fertile soil. The perfect gift for any eco-conscious golfer.

There are so many reasons for golfers to use these wheat golf tees and the additional wheat golf combo accessories pack - both now available in Canada at Lavish & Lime.

These include:

- made from a crop-based, sustainable and renewable resource
- no negative impact on the environment if these tees are lost on or off the course
- when you're done with them, simply throw them in the garden to compost
- tree-free; no trees were cut down to make these tees
- telp cut down on plastic pollution and reliance on plastics
- made in the US so the footprint is relatively small
- strong, durable and heat resistant

The Top Ten Reasons to use Glass Food Storage Jars

Getting back to glass has its benefits - especially for food storage. With growing awareness about toxins and toxic materials, more and more of us are looking for healthier, more environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic food containers, etc. for food storage, reheating and serving.

Here are ten top reasons you should store your food in a glass container.

1. There is no leaching of toxic chemicals into the food kept in glass storage containers. Glass is BPA-free, PVC-free and Phthalates-free.

2. Glass is earth-friendly - it's 100% recyclable.

3. There is no staining with glass storage jars as there can be with plastic.

4. Glass is transparent so you can keep an eye on the status of the leftovers in your fridge.

5. Glass is easy to clean - just pop your used glass container in the dishwasher.

6. You can put your glass storage containers in the freezer, in the oven and in the microwave (just be wary of any plastic lids).

7. Glass looks good and can go direct from fridge to table. There's no problem with serving food in glass containers thereby in many cases, eliminating the need for separate serving dishes.

8. Glass food storage containers are now available with colourful and secure BPA-free lids.

9. There is no after taste with glass as there can be for some people with sensitivities to stainless steel containers.

10. Treated with care, glass is durable and can last a long, long time.

For a contemporary multi-coloured set of glass food storage containers with lids, visit eco boutique Lavish & Lime. If you have any questions or thoughts about glass containers or storing food in general, please leave a comment below. We'd love to hear from you!
