At Generation Green we want to be able to offer the best selection of products possible, as well as be able to offer our personal opinion, which means we have to try a lot of products! (I know, it’s a tough job!) We definitely all have favorites, and “can’t live without” products! Here are our favorites this month…
Dallas’s Pick – Swell Bottle
Sherry’s Pick – Pure Anada Mascara
Savannah’s Pick – Belly Buttons & Babies Sunscreen
It may be cliché that my July pick be sunscreen… But let’s be real, this past weekend was scorching. And spending it camping at folk fest means minimal shade… I am one to avoid sunscreen and bring on the tan, but by Saturday and full body sunburn I knew it was time to smarten up. I applied my Belly Buttons and Babies sunscreen and survived the 30+ and sunny weather for 2 more days. A natural sunscreen is super important as 60% of what you apply on your skin goes into your bloodstream. Drugstore and conventional sunscreen are filled with plenty of chemicals and who-knows-what that is positioning your body, yuck! Belly Buttons and Babies sunscreen is filled only with basic and natural ingredients (that you can read) to protect you from the sun. And thanks to it, as my sunburn fades, I am happily entering brown town. We carry a couple other brands as well to give everyone options… Made for Skin and Mama Pacha are superb options as well and these guys are even produced in Winnipeg. So I encourage you to buy locally and naturally!
Ana’s Pick – Kicking Horse Coffee
I have become quite the coffee fanatic in the last year or so and I must confess.. I am picky. I may even go as far as saying that I am the most picky java consumer out there. When I discovered Kicking Horse coffee, I was first hooked after just reading the bag.The descriptions make your mouth water before you’ve even thought about brewing it. Seriously. I am a sucker for a good dark roast and I couldn’t pass up Grizzly Claw after reading these 4 words: Rich. Dark. Chocolate. Decadent. Hello!! Yes please! And the rest is history. I’m in love! At Generation Green, Kicking Horse coffee is sold in 1lb whole bean bags, which allows you to grind your coffee just before use, at just the right grind for the most satisfying cup of joe. But wait, the best part- the beans are certified organic AND fair trade (not to mention roasted in Canada)! What could be better? Whether you’re pulling an all nighter before an exam, coming back to life on a Monday morning, or camping in the Whiteshell, Kicking Horse is sure to make you do your happy coffee dance…that’s a thing, right?
