Over the course of the past few years, there's been an uptick in the interest for more sustainable living. Luckily, there are shops around Toronto that make it easier for us to create less waste and treat the earth a little friendlier. One of those shops being The Green Jar.
Located in midtown Toronto at 1061 St. Clair Ave. West, The Green Jar is the brainchild of sisters Tannis and Mara Bundi. The two grew up in a minimal-waste household and found it difficult to carry on the lifestyle as they became adults, leading them to open The Green Jar in 2019.
The shop is a go-to for zero-wasters and those looking to live more sustainably.
Whether you're an eco-living warrior or new to the green scene, this St. Clair West store has everything you need. Reducing single-use plastics is one of the top priorities and the shop carries a range of products to support this initiative — think silicone food pouches, reusable stainless steel straws, and bamboo utensils. Other lifestyle products include items for your family such as bamboo teething rings, baby cutlery, baby bath gel, and school lunch gear. There are also to-go meals like salads and juices from Village Juicery.
On top of that, the shop also features a refillery. Here you'll find a curated selection of refillable personal care like shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, coconut oil, to name a few, and household products like dish soap, laundry soap, and beyond.
At The Green Jar, the team believes that all it takes is small steps to make a difference.
And they strive to make living with less waste as simple as possible. If you're unsure where to start, the store offers Ready To Go Kits that are packed with eco-living essentials and specialty kits for baby, home, school, travel, and body.
