Amphora Ceramics 

Amphora Ceramics was started in Victoria, BC in 2020 by artists Celeste Kerridge and Elena Richardson. The company grew from the pair's passion for pottery. Each piece is handmade with love and intention, with the goal of making high quality functional ceramics.

Make Nice Company

Make Nice Company was started by Bonnie Yang in Vancouver BC. After making the switch to zero waste products at home, she found that there weren't waste-free dish soap options available, so decided to make her own. Make Nice dish soap blocks are 100% natural and vegan. The company is Leaping Bunny Certified (certified cruelty-free).

What is Leaping Bunny Certification?

Displaying the Leaping Bunny logo requires compliance with the rigorous Leaping Bunny standards to end animal testing. Companies are required to follow their cruelty free standards and comply with third party verification of their business practices.

What is circular manufacturing?

Like a circular economy, circular manufacturing archives net zero-waste through reducing, reusing and recycling material that would typically go to a landfill. One of the ways that Abeego achieves this is by using wax wrap scraps to make their mini-campfires and fire-starter kits. By applying the principles of circular manufacturing companies are able to save money, function more efficiently and reduce their environmental impact.

What is B Corp Certification?

“B Corp Certification is a designation that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials.
