Straight from the buying team, see what's NEW for May!

0 comments / Posted by Audra Curley

I am not going to go into any Covid talk, or vaccine talk, or talk about how sick I was when I got my poke and the fact that my arm is still aching from that tiny innocent looking needle. So strange to be so incredibly happy and relieved to feel so very bad! Don't let me scare you off. Did you know the more ill you become from some vaccines the better? Antibodies doing their thang. So, it’s just like winning the lottery when it’s your time, even though it may not feel like it. I may have to buy myself a little something special to reward myself. The buying team here at terra20 has some new and exciting products to introduce that can make me forget it ever happened. Retail therapy people. Works every time.

Maple Tea Co.

Feeling that March came in a little like a lion? A brand-new tea line from Maple Tea Co will help with that! The owner James is terra20 alumni, so we have a special spot in our hearts and on our shelves for this beautiful product. He brings us a delicious offering of organic and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) Certified teas. A proud younger sibling to North Brew Coffee, Maple Tea shares a likewise belief that ethically sourced ingredients and a desire to make a difference can and will drive global change. They source all tea directly from the farmers and donate a portion of all profits to the Youth Services Bureau right here in Ottawa. All that and 8 wonderful flavours come beautifully packaged. I think we can all agree. IT IS TEATIME.

Holos

Quebec based Holos has a simple story. Friends Steve and Chris, one entrepreneur and one health nut and holistic nutritionist, got together to blend their superpowers to bring us a delicious grab and go breakfast. The perfect mix of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, Omega 3's and probiotics formulated to give you long lasting energy to make you feel fantastic all day long! Four flavours to choose from and easy to make, just add the pre portioned pack to any jar, add your favourite milk or milk substitute and soak overnight. That's right, no cooking. Overnight the magic happens. It minimizes bloat, unlocks more nutrients and creates a meal that is softer on your digestion. Made with organic ingredients, vegan, gluten free and it’s made in Canada. Looks like Holos will be right at home on terra20 shelves!

 

Attitude Curl Shampoo and Conditioner

Calling all curls! Get ready to take care of those gorgeous manes. Attitude brings you Curl Shampoo and Conditioner, that's right, just for you. Three varieties no less, because all tresses are not equal. Doesn't that make you feel special all you curly haired ones? From Montreal based Attitude this company is a t20 customer fave. They plant a tree for every product sold! Now that really is planting the seeds of a more sustainable future.    

Planta Mixing Bowls

Has anyone decided to eat their way through the pandemic? Our lives have been centered around baking, cooking and learning the art of sourdough. Now that you’ve perfected that, you probably need running shoes but new Planta bamboo fibre and melamine mixing bowls by Now Designs would be WAY more fun. In a set of 5 because who isn’t baking brownies and whipping up some cookie batter while their bread rises?

Danica Pour Over Coffee Set

My mornings? Let me transport you there, they are calm and quiet. I wake, looking refreshed, I have perfect hair. I sling on a beautiful robe and head to the ever clutter less, spotlessly clean kitchen to brew a fresh steaming coffee in the Danica Contour Ceramic Pour Over set. Caffeinating is chic and contemporary, clean and consistent. Perfect coffee for a perfect day….So maybe it doesn’t go exactly like that. I may have exaggerated some of the specific details of my regular morning routine, but I sure can dream it as I sip that coffee made in the matte black glazed ceramic pour over set. It almost makes it real. Almost.

Naked Swab

With the wrap up of Earth Month, terra20 is bringing you Naked Swab to remind you that this party just got started! We know you’re all trying your best to drop single use products. Here’s one more you can wave goodbye to, disposable cotton ear buds! Naked Swab brings you a reusable swab made from medical grade silicone with a bamboo shaft. Wash and use, wash and use, wash and use. You get the picture. Available in a pack of four the swabs come in a handy bamboo case, so you don’t lose them in the bottom of your purse!

Toad & Co.

Toad and Co is one of terra20's best-selling apparel brands. You can see why, comfy, casual and most importantly sustainable. A collection built for 2021’s new casual at home chic that we are all vibing right now. These duds aren’t just for weekends anymore! Toad & Co is a business that came from humble beginnings, just a woman in a garage in Colorado with a whole lot of fleece and a sewing machine. The company blossomed and is now adorned with Eco certifications, supports a slew of causes and has a warehouse that employs adults with developmental challenges. They know better than anyone that the garment industry is the fourth largest polluter of air and water in the world. Their message is clear. Go sustainable or go nude. Toad & Co are serious about minimizing their environmental impact because, well, they don’t want you to go nude. They have a list of restricted substances that they refuse to see used in their garment production. They vet all their stockists to make sure they hold similar values and work towards social and environmental justice. Sound familiar? While we were vetting them, they were vetting us! We see you Toad & Co and we love you too! Spring ’21 is a dreamy collection. Camping or cottage clothes anyone? CHECK.

Toad&Co Camp Cove Romper ($119.99)

Blue Q

This American company is made up of a band of creative, witty designers and thinkers whose life’s work is to make you smile. They call themselves a cult but like in a good way. Their bags are made from 95% post-consumer plastic. That’s right. Something from your recycling bin just may have been made into your new tote or pencil case. Not only that, 1% of the sale of all Blue Q bags supports environmental initiatives around the globe. Pretty neat. So go ahead, channel your inner cat lady and feel the love.

Blue Q Jumbo Cat Pouch ($12.99)

Illume

Illume is a brand built on pure imagination. Scents meant to transport you. Sign me up for that vacation please. The Spring line which just hit the shelves is full of fruity, fresh scents perfect for any lock down…we all need to make our nests feel like spring. Scents like Baltic Beach, Norse Isle and Salt Cavern. I have only been on a Baltic Beach once, sand dunes, glorious sun and amber in the sand. Happy to re visit. Never been on a Norse Isle (I’ve watched Vikings, does that count?) Never been in a Salt Cavern but excited to be transported there. Unless of course it’s one of those weird salt filled rooms you see at the mall. Some of these candles even come in beautiful reusable vessels that can be used long after the candles are gone.

Illume Candle Vanity Tin Citrus Crush ($14.99)
