Living in Vancouver for so many years made us fall in love with everything it has to offer. Whether it be the nature in our backyard, countless types of foods and restaurants, active and healthy lifestyle choices, or the number of small businesses that make up more than 90% of companies in BC. We can really agree that it is the best place to live!

First look!

Gift a Green "Just Because" ($9.99)
These unique greeting card include seeds and soil so you can grow your own microgreens.
Curly cress, or garden cress is a fast-growing, edible herb that is botanically related to watercress and mustard, sharing their peppery, tangy flavor and aroma. It prefers considerably less water in the sprouting stage than most other microgreens seeds. If the seeds get too wet, you will end up with a very low germination rate. Cress has an interesting shaped leaf that is green in color. The peppery flavor is intense.

Forest Garden Forest Lavender Soap ($5.25)
Forest Garden is from Chase, in the Shushwap region of BC. My grandfather used to live in Chase, so I'm quite familiar with the area. Forest Garden makes high quality, all natural body products from renewable fair-trade ingredients.

Em'Say YVR Coaster ($12.50)
Em'Say is a company that designs funky concrete products for your home. There are 4 designs in the YVR Coaster set. This concrete coaster has a cork backing and is sealed.

FLOWERINK Stationery Seeded Card ($8)
This 4x4 card is more than just a greeting card. The paper is embedded with tiny wildflower seeds! Simply plant your FLOWERINK card in 1/8” of soil, water daily, and watch your beautiful wildflowers bloom.

Forest & Waves Silkscreen Printed Card ($6)
This card was silkscreen printed by hand in Vancouver. I found a great blog post showing the process for screen printing a custom invitation. It's a very technical and laborious process. 

Whiff Craft Wake Up Your Face Energizing Essential Oil Spray ($14)
Clear your head and get refreshed with this cooling, energizing spray. This is our flagship product that started the company. Many faces have been awakened!
This essential oil spray contains spearmint, eucalyptus, lavender, and lemon. It's quite refreshing. Whiff Craft is based in Victoria, BC and carries a huge products line, including natural deodorants, remedy roll-ons, and aromatherapy sprays.

The April Vancity Box included six products, valued at $55.75. I'm really happy with this box. I always like it when Vancity Box puts together a box of items from a variety of makers, and this one hit it out of the park. I was introduced to five new local companies today, and I look forward to checking out their online shops to see what else they have to offer.

If you want to give Vancity Box a try, you can save 15% off your first box using promo code CDNBOXADDICT15 at checkout. Sign up before April 20th to get the May box!
