Sometimes, the oldest tricks work the best, and the effectiveness of the Avocado Sock is no exception. It’s an organic, back-to-basics product that encourages the consumption of healthy avocados in an over-processed and plastic-filled world. This has been a very rewarding project from conception to a reality. It is giving back to local communities by employing local manufacturers, using sustainably-sourced products. The Avocado Socks are knit in Alberta using 100% Shetland wool from a 200-year-old Scottish wooden mill. The Avocado Socks are finished by a social enterprise in Vancouver that employs and trains people with employment challenges, using all environmentally friendly products.

GreenPan™ is a Belgian brand with an international reputation. It is the brand of two childhood friends: Jan Helskens and Wim De Veirman. When they discovered that traditional non-stick pans released toxins when overheated and PFOA was used to produce the non-stick coating, they started looking for a new alternative. GreenPan™ was the first to introduce ceramic non-stick cookware into the market.
Their pans with Thermolon™ ceramic non-stick has given customers a whole new option when it comes to healthy cooking. Today, GreenPan™ products can be found in retail, department, hardware, grocery, mass market and specialty stores in over 100 countries around the world.
