#HolidaysAtNU | Warm up to the delicious taste and smell of mulled apple cider. Our elves in the NU kitchen have created this #numazing mulling spice mix! Add it to a bottle of Hall’s apple cider and the peel and juice of two oranges. 🍊Let it simmer for a few minutes... and enjoy! It will warm your heart. 😊 Swap the apple cider for red wine and you’ll have a Glühwein! 👏

One more reason to come to the store and #shoptheNUway! 😉

Better safe than sorry 😊. Get your #zerowaste gifts in time for Christmas!

If you can’t make it to the store, place your orders online before Friday night at to make sure you receive them on time! 🎄

It’s the most wonderful time of the year in so many ways! But the Holiday season can also be stressful as we strive to make it perfect and joyful for everyone. Forget perfection, slow down and practice some self-care. 😌

Get your weekly supply of juicy oranges waste-free in one of our @credobags produce bags. They’re made of 100% natural cotton mesh that is woven and stitched in Montreal. 👍
Tip: roll them, tie them and you’ve got a beautiful / sustainable / practical / Canadian-made #zerowaste gift! 😊🎄

#HolidaysAtNU | On Christmas Day 2015, Valerie’s mom offered her the book @zerowastehome. Little did she know that Valerie would read it in one day, adopt a zero waste lifestyle the next day, and open Ontario’s first #zerowaste grocery store with Sia from @zerowastecouple 18 months later!
Zero waste lifestyle products are great gifts because they make us rethink the way we live and consume. And it can be life-changing. This book truly was! 🙏

540,000 tons of wrapping paper and gift bags are thrown out in Canada each year 😱

So this year, let's wrap differently! The Japanese tradition of gift wrapping with #furoshiki is beautiful and sustainable. We have partnered with the local social enterprise @ecoequitable who made our furoshiki from donated fabric!

Need help wrapping? Ask us for a demo at the store! We have a few furoshiki experts on staff who are happy to help. 😊
