Salt Spring Coffee Co. - Vancouver, BC

By shokutsu on December 5, 2008 - 12:48pm

In stark contrast to the monolith that is the Starbucks empire of coffee shops, the Salt Spring Coffee Co. boasts a mere four outlets in its entirety, all of which are based in the province of British Columbia. And this is for a company that was first started in 1996. Priding themselves on being mindful of fair trade and organics when it comes to the whole coffee bean-to-cup continuum, and the values of sustainability while still creating a good cup of coffee, it’s clear they are operating at an entirely different level from the Seattle-based mega brand. Their outlet on the beautiful University of British Columbia campus on the western edge of Vancouver would seem to be representative of their vision. Wedged within a new residential area, nestled next to a community centre and a spacious playground, with its wooden chalet-like design and relaxed atmosphere, and customers inside usually a mix of energetic students, teaching faculty taking a break, and of course nearby residents and their children - the building is very welcoming to one and all, and does not feel at all like a commercial enterprise.

Green Business Web Review Winner Shops Organically on Granville Island

By uncleweed on January 23, 2008 - 1:59pm

VANCOUVER - January 23, 2008 - A Granville Island shop specializing in organic fabric fashions was a bit surprised when a photographer, a contest winner and a guy with a cheque for $500 came into her store, Organix. While hardly a lotto windfall, all that was missing from the scene was the giant cheque and the confetti!

Alexa, Pat and Dave at Organix

The contest, promoted by newly-launched BC Green Directory, encouraged site members to review green-minded businesses and organizations listed in the comprehensive website. Each quality review resulted in an entry to win the loot to spend at any one listed shop, service or charity.

As the green directory review contest winner, Vancouver web designer Alexa Booth faced a compelling choice of 1600 different green minded vendors at which to spend her prize - and she should know as she entered over 30 in-depth reviews.
