If you're looking for contemporary eco-friendly products to help you live life a little greener, Lavish & Lime is a great place to start.
We’re a husband and wife team that – like most new parents – started thinking more about ingredients, materials and the impact we’re having on the environment when we had kids. We found there were lots of eco-friendly products out there, just not readily available – in Canada.
After returning to Vancouver from London, UK, we decided to take a leap and in 2007 launched Lavish & Lime, offering contemporary products with the level of style we’d become accustomed to in Europe. Uncertain of the response, we started cautiously with eco-friendly as one category. It quickly became our focus.
Lavish & Lime is about shades of green. We’re not tree huggers and we’re definitely not litter bugs either – we’re somewhere in between and firmly believe that even small steps make a difference. If we all do a little, it will help a lot. That’s what the ‘Lime’ is about. The ‘Lavish’ is all about giving and enjoying nice things. Eco doesn’t have to be boring and beige anymore.
Our Review Panel
Don't just take our word for it. In our ongoing search for the latest and greatest eco products, we've brought on board a panel of people we consider to be experts. Meet our review panel.
We source unique, contemporary products that look good. They just happen to be good for you and the planet too – because they should. Green is no longer a fad, it’s a way of life and the smartest, most efficient way to do things when all true costs are taken into account. To us, buying a reusable sandwich wrap that can last an entire school year is a smart eco-choice because it saves you money and reduces the number of baggies going into the landfill.
Everything at Lavish & Lime has been selected because of its inherent quality and style. Each product must successfully pass through one of three filters: eco-friendly, natural/non-toxic and made in Canada. The 'three ticks' label on our product pages lets you know why we chose a product at a glance:
Eco-friendly - either made of sustainable (bamboo, cork, etc.) or recycled materials or encourages people to reduce and reuse.
Natural/non-toxic - this category recognizes healthy materials and manufacturing processes are linked to our own health and well being and that of the environment.
Made in Canada - buying Canadian not only helps support the local economy and jobs, it also reduces the carbon footprint and provides a level of consumer comfort regarding production and labour standards.
Some of the products we carry on our site are made in China. Our research has brought us to the conclusion that concerns should be more about the standards of the manufacturer and less about the physical location of the manufacturing. Companies who engage in ethical business practices and commit to ensuring high quality products are the ones we have chosen to deal with and we will continue to do so. We only sell products which we would use ourselves and consider safe for our family. As such we are confident in offering them to our customers.
