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

0 comments / Posted by Audra Curley

Here we are, it has finally arrived. April! We can say hello to some warmer days and some warmer hearts as we welcome springtime. Spending more time outdoors will definitely brighten up my mood. Is it just me or is everyone dying to throw open their windows, tidy the garden, paint a room, de clutter, kick to the curb their three messy teenagers…ok well maybe you’re not all feeling that last one? Perhaps I keep the teens and stock up on new products this month at terra20 instead…so many options.

Danica Studio Tea Infusers 

Danica Imports has been a go to terra20 brand for quite some time and our customers love it. They have been around since 1964 and have grown and morphed into what they are today, a home décor design giant with fantastic style. Their head offices are in Vancouver (yay for picking Canada to call home!) along with design and distribution and their manufacturing facilities overseas. They make beautiful product with sustainable materials and help us reduce waste while staying stylish. There’s more, a percentage of their profits go to Education Without Borders, and they support Foodbanks Canada. Thumbs up Danica, we can all get on board for that.

This season we bring you the Danica Tea Infuser Bottles made of double walled glass. The bottle allows the tea to stay hot while remaining cool to the touch. The diffuser sits inside to house your tea leaves. A sustainable bamboo lid holds it all in. Now you can steep on the go, skip while it saturates, be in motion while it marinates. Oh, and don’t forget, you can infuse water with fruit as well when those days turn even warmer. You can shimmy while it soaks...

Ecologie Beeswax Wraps 

Another excellent brand from our friends at Danica, Ecologie Beeswax Wraps. Say goodbye to nasty plastic wrap and single use plastic. Say hello to beeswax coated cotton wraps in cute patterns, great for storing and wrapping almost anything. The best thing about beeswax wraps is that they breathe. Unlike plastic that creates layer of moisture that causes mould to grow these wraps can be reused and reused to keep your food fresh longer. In a handy 3 pack in the sweetest patterns. I’d like a set of each please! And just a word of advice, they do not dig the hot water…found out the hard way.

Now Designs Napkins 

These napkins are a picnic waiting to happen. Second Spin napkins get their name from the thread used to produce the fabric that has come from textile industry off cuts that are re spun into new fabric. Smart? Brilliant! A little reduce, reuse, recycle action folks. Just a little napkin with a big environmental impact. And really? Don’t you feel like you’re living in a Downton Abbey episode when you use a cloth napkin? Four fabulous colours to choose from. So yummy looking, please try not to eat the napkin. 

Fatso

Born in the back of a health food restaurant Victoria BC, Fatso has become a terra20 staple. Many a water cooler morning found us talking about the latest and greatest thing we had eaten with our Fatso. I swear by green apples dipped in the Peanut Butter Salted Caramel. Seriously. To. Die. For. And just when you thought you had tasted heaven and you could quit finding something to beat it? Along came three new Almond and Seed butter varieties. Say hello to Classic, Maple and Salted Caramel. Dig in, we love you Fatso. 

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.
