Eco zero waste foodsafe reduce plastic in the kitchen

Hi, my name is Marria, I live in Winnipeg, MB Canada with my husband, a 13 year old cat and a 3 year old rescue Beagle. I’ve always loved to sew and started this venture out of personal need for vegan reusable, easy care, solutions. Thank you for supporting hand made and choosing to reduce waste. In December 2020, I donated $2 from every veggie guard sale which totalled $125 (rounded up) to Villa Rosa Inc, which is a non-profit in Winnipeg that offers pre and post natal care to expecting and new moms.
Our shop helpers include, Jessie, who cuts 95% of our products out of bolts of fabric. Jessie fits her cutting time in between the comings and goings of two young boys. She uses her earnings to pay for private school tuition. Emily, is a full time Sewist and in warmer months a vendor at outdoor markets. Emily first started with PH when she was a full time student. Her love for sewing is evident in everything she does. Our other main helper, Adaelia, is our pro package maker. She loves a paper cutter! She is also a fulltime student and mostly volunteers for PH to keep her hands busy when she needs a break from all the pre-med classes.
Last, but not least, Earl (Mr. Practical) is our graphics and packaging designer. His expertise has opened the world of wholesale to us as we can offer packaging that a retailer requires.
