Are you as obsessed with 'all things avocado' as we are?! Avocados have taken over and become a main stream symbol. Not only are they used in our fave appetizer (guac!), avocado toast and to provide all the 'good' fat we could ever want, they're being used in everything from greeting cards to skin oil.
In honour of National Avocado Day (July 31), we're showcasing 'all things avocado' from 8 Canadian shops.
2. Original Human Co.
Original Human Co. is a cruelty free and vegan skin care company based in Calgary, AB. They create facial serums using high quality ingredients that are "tailored for dry, breakout-prone, sensitive or dry skin but can also be mixed, match and layered to fit every original human". There's no one-size-fits-all approach here!
Avocado oil is one of the key ingredients in their Marula facial serum which is designed for drier skin types.
3. Good Gifts
Good Gifts is an online marketplace based in Toronto, ON that's founded on six words: Do Good. Gift Good. Feel Good.
They offer a unique selection of handmade, ethical products that all support international artisans and their communities.
This cute crocheted avocado baby rattle was handcrafted in Kyrgyzstan.
4. Black Dog Bakery
Black Dog Bakery is a mobile cookie, cupcake and cake decorating service based in Calgary, AB. They bring the baked goods and teach you how to decorate them! Perfect for girls night, birthday parties, showers or team building. They also offer custom cookie packages like these adorable avocado cookies.
5. Baskets By Basket Case
Baskets By Basket Case is an online gift basket shop based in Cold Lake, AB. They curate beautiful gifts for any occasion and believe all the little details matter (love that!). They even hand-dye the ribbon they use to tie up their gift baskets using avocado peels. So amazing!
