How do you greenify your home? Look to the three R’s, of course.
Ginger pomelo dish soap by Caldrea ($13.95) is not only aromatherapeutic, but biodegradable and concentrated so you don’t have to use much to get the job done.
Brightly coloured and dishwasher-safe, Ecologie dishware is made of crushed bamboo and rice hulks. Picnic-perfect salad plates start at $4.95.
We’re not just talking about cans and bottles. Rick Bowerman creates one-of-a-kind pieces, like the coffee table pictured ($1895), from reclaimed beams salvaged from old Gastown buildings. — Kelsey Dundon
