June 5, 2022: World Environment Day 🌎

Sustainable consumption and production, combined with circular approaches, can boost economic development, mitigate climate change, have positive impacts on health and pollution

Today, share your actions for the Earth with #OnlyOneEarth or #UneSeuleTerre and encourage at least one person to do the same! Launch a beautiful mobilization chain with me!

My commitment for today and every day: make as many people as possible aware of simple actions that can make a difference for our beautiful planet, such as reducing single-use plastics.

You too can make a difference! Need ideas? Consult the practical guide #UneSeuleTerre: https://www.worldenvironmentday.global/fr/get-involved/practical-guide

Is dad a chef? 👨‍🍳

If your spouse or your father often cooks at home, I envy you! 😉

To encourage him to continue, offer him beautiful eco-friendly and practical items for Father's Day! 😘 Because reusable bags and bowl covers aren't just for women. I also have several more neutral fabrics, perfect for these gentlemen! 🧔‍♂️

I invite you to shop by fabric on the store: https://www.tailleetretailles.ca/categorie-produit/magasiner-par-tissu/ and look at gray or blue plaid fabrics, breads, mouse gray, pizza margarita, orange, royal blue, sunshine yellow, coffee or whaleboats, among others.

When I go on vacation...

Friday game 🎲: complete the sentence.

When I go on vacation, I put in my bag Taille & Retailles…

… crayons for the kids in the restaurant! 🖍️
(Okay, I cheated 😈: not anymore, my daughters are getting too old for that… 📱)

And you? What will you put in your reusable bags for the holidays? 🧳

Are you a fan of swimming in the summer? 🏊‍♀️

I do! I tolerate heat very badly. 🥵 It gives me a migraine. 🤕 So the air conditioning and the swimming pool are really important to me. Although I know it's not too green. 🤷‍♀️ You have to choose your battles in life.

On the other hand, we do not purposely consume more than necessary when using the pool. 🔌 Do you know the tricks to reduce electricity, water and chemical consumption for your swimming pool? This article gives you several: https://mireijin.com/impact-ecologique-piscine/

If you have a large lot, and you are thinking of installing one, or replacing the existing one, think of the natural swimming pool. It's like having a little lake at home! 🏞️https://www.ecohabitation.com/guides/1215/tout-sur-la-piscine-naturelle/

Good summer refreshment! 🍹

My favorite for the summer 😍

Do you like to eat popsicles all summer long? 🍦 Me too! This is why I chose the covers Mr Freeze as a favorite to present yourself for the Etsy VS spring market.

Here is my top 5 good reasons to love them:

5. They have 2 layers of fabric on each side, so they are really insulating 🧤 #finislesdoigtsgeles

4. They make a great guest favor for summer friends parties 🎉, zero waste to boot! #no packaging

3. They are colorful, so children love them, and adults too 💚 #coeurdenfant

2. They make a great home educator gift. 👩‍👧‍👦 Imagine the party when the 6 children enjoy their frozen treat #viveletealagarderie

1. They are made of scraps, so avoid throwing away pieces of fabric #pasdegaspillage 🚫🗑️

Come pick yours at the Etsy VS Spring Market next weekend! https://www.facebook.com/events/291107249767915

Utilise tes savons sans gaspiller 🧼

Es-tu Séraphine à tes heures? 🤑 Moi, ce n’est pas tant pour le côté monétaire (bon, quand même un peu…), mais surtout pour ne pas gaspiller du bon matériel. 🗑️

Alors quand j’ai des bouts de savons, je les rassemble tous dans mon Soap dish, et ils sont bons jusqu’à la dernière goutte! 💦

J’ouvre aussi les bouteilles à pompe pour utiliser ce qui colle aux parois… Je gagnes au moins 2 semaines de crème de jour avec cette astuce! 😮

Et toi? As-tu des trucs écolos-éconos à nous partager?

Aimes-tu les abeilles? 🐝

Aujourd’hui, le 20 mai, c’est la Journée Mondiale des Abeilles. Tu le sais sûrement, leurs populations sont en déclin pour plusieurs raisons. 💔

Une façon de les protéger accessible à tous, c’est de leur offrir de la nourrir tôt au printemps, en laissant les pissenlits et autres fleurs printanières fleurir un peu partout. 🌷

Défi pour toi : Montre-nous ta belle pelouse amie des abeilles! 🐝🌻

🧑‍🌾 Farmers markets are back!

With the good weather, we are gradually seeing the reopening of farmers' markets across Quebec. 😃

Did you know that buying local is also making a conscious choice for the environment? 🌳

⚜️ Local products = less transport 🚚, therefore less greenhouse gas. Long live the products from here!

Tell me, what is your favorite farmer's market or local producer?

PS Don't forget to bring your net bags Taille & Retailles and your reusable grocery bags to do your shopping! 😉

Participes-tu à l’économie circulaire? 🔄

L’économie circulaire, c’est plus qu’un concept à la mode! C’est vraiment la voie de l’avenir. Nos ancêtres l’avaient compris, il ne nous reste qu’à se le réapproprier.

Avec mes produits et mon entreprise, je touche à plusieurs sphères de l’économie circulaire :

  • 🗑️ Gestion des déchets : mes produits sont réutilisables plutôt que jetables après usage
  • 🗓️ Achat durable : mes produits sont conçus pour durer plusieurs années
  • 🧩 Éco-conception : je conçois tous mes produits de façon à réduire l’usage de matière
  • ⚜️ Consommation responsable : je favorise les distributeurs locaux pour mes achats, et j’utilise des retailles lorsque possible (ex. ratine des lingettes démaquillantes, pantoufles sous-verres, couvre Mr. Freeze)
  • 🪡 Allongement de la durée d’emploi : j’offre des services de réparations et altérations de vêtements et autres produits textiles

Et toi? Quelle est ta contribution?
