At this year’s Green Living Show, taking place April 7 – 9 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Downtown Toronto, you’ll find some truly ingenious products that combine innovation and sustainability.
Some of the top innovations you will find on the Show floor include:
Soda without the guilt. Crazy D’s All-Natural Soda, a fizzy beverage hand-crafted in Toronto, uses the science of nature’s prebiotic root vegetables instead of sugar to achieve a hint of sweetness. Crazy D’s sodas are available in three flavours: Ginga’ Kick, Thrilla In Vanilla and Rockin’ Rolla Cherry Cola.

Healthy Dog Treats by Wilder & Harrier (Pet Care)

Known as cricket flour, this powder is a superfood, full of important nutrients like Omega-3, which are hard to find in most animal protein, essential amino acids, vitamin B-12, iron, calcium and fibre. It is also very high in protein – actually twice as much as beef – and low in fat and calories.

Made in Glengarry, Ontario, these cheeses feature fresh ingredients like cold-pressed organic coconut oil, local organic garlic and fresh herbs and spices.

Glengarry also lacto-ferments the cheeses for 24-48 hours to culture probiotics that aid in digestion and help maintain a healthy intestinal micro-flora.
