Shopping Local and Ethical Without Busting Bank

 

We’ve all heard it. “I want to support local or ethical, but I just can’t afford it.” This is basically how big box retailers thrive – they churn out mass volume for cheap labor and cost, and families on a budget flock. This isn’t to shame, because all of us do it. I love my Target runs or saving up coupons to get everything my daughter needs from Gap. I’m writing this because most of us have a heart for being more ethically conscious, and wanting to provide a cleaner, less-polluted world for our kids, but need some help doing it. So if you are from BC or Canada in general, here are some helpful tips for how to afford ethically made products.

Municipal Leaders and Tech Entrepreneurs Unite for 2nd Annual Fraser Valley Tech Forum with a Focus on Intelligent Communities and Funding for Valley Entrepreneurs

On Thursday, September 20th, key regional stakeholders and industry experts are participating in the second annual Fraser Valley Tech Forum co-hosted by the Sumas Regional Consortium for High Tech (SRCTec) and the District of Mission. The event aims to attract industry, government, academia, tech influencers, and community stakeholders to come together and foster growth and innovation within the local tech sector.

The Roots of Impact

At the beginning of the 2018 school year my daughter started working in grade schools toward a very meaningful initiative. Upon being asked to participate in the Roots of Empathy program I was unclear about what it would look like, however, my interest peaked, and we scheduled a meet and greet with our potential instructor. It went very well and on our first day I got my daughter ready in her little ‘teacher’ uniform (cue the proud tears of delight!) and we set out for our first session working with grade 7 students. She was 4 months old and I could see that she was a little overwhelmed with entering a new, busy environment. I held her tight as she clung to the neck of my shirt with a white-knuckle grip and intensely wide eyes. Our instructor guided us through an educational session about her capabilities, milestones and her general demeanor. I was delighted to see that the students were both curious and very respectful of her need for comfort and quiet ‘indoor voices’. Upon getting home and reflecting I was excited to continue our Roots of Empathy journey and all that we would subsequently experience as a community of shared learning.
