Green is the new Black

Just a little bit west of Monarch Park on Danforth, you may have noticed that there is a shop window that often displays a selection of Japanese socks and sandals. It occasionally mixes things up with a fresh exhibit of eco-friendly kids clothing and accessories. I've often wondered what this is all about, so I'm very happy to share a new secret discovery: this is Kai Kids and they're a great, family run business (who actually live in the neighbourhood) which specializes in ethically-made, eco-friendly gear for families.

Although they're not usually open to the public, this Saturday, October 17, they're doing what the Brits call a pop-up shop and what I call a trunk show. They'll be opening up 1390 Danforth from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. for some planet-friendly and non-toxic 'green' shopping.

Products are mainly for kids from birth to 4, pregnant women and nursing moms and includes skincare products, toys, clothes, bedding etc.

Design star Barbara Nyke, who specializes in eco-friendly design, will be holding a free information session on designing healthy rooms for kids.
