Canadian Pride

 

The Green Beaver Company is family-owned and proudly Canadian since 2001. We choose as many Canadian suppliers as possible for our ingredients since we want Canada to thrive. This also helps us reduce our environmental footprint and benefits communities across Canada.

We even work with local bees from the Hockley Valley Honey Farm.  Our products are made with wild, organic ingredients from Canadian land. No neocides are used on this farm and thus, ensuring species’ survival. Many favourite crops such as fruit and vegetables would be missing.  These include apples, almonds, carrots, pumpkins, onions and even broccoli! (1)

Mother Nature is our inspiration. We use organic ingredients from sustainable farming, grown in Canadian soil. The products are healthy and reduce the use of pesticides. By using our products made from organic ingredients, we encourage farmers to adopt organic farming, reducing the amount of pesticides sprayed on our land. This supports our partners to save the bees that are currently threatened by pesticides and their effects. Buying locally reduces pollution because less fuel is needed, and as well produces less greenhouse gas. We want to preserve our pure, fresh Canadian air.

Furthermore, being Ecocert, we must recycle our packaging and use FSC certified paper to protect our forests. We are involved in various environmental projects. One of our recent projects is to help the protect beavers and their habitats by installing a water regulator.  This device allows beavers and humans to live in harmony. We also work with several other environmental groups such as The Lower Mainland Green Team BC, Pollution Probe, Lake Ontario Keeper, Environmental Defence, Toronto Vegetarian Association, Swim Guide, Ottawa River Keeper, The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals, Lavender Ontario and many more.

Health and healthy living are also one of our main concerns and that’s why we share with several research groups and action groups across the country. Being Canadian, we develop products tailored to the needs of Canadians.  We know how to tackle dry, itchy skin caused by harsh Canadian winters! Likewise, we’ve created a variety of toothpastes and deodorants that are safe for the whole family using many local ingredients.

Our mission:

We rely on pure, natural ingredients to bring you safe alternatives to common household cleaning or personal care products that are good for you, the environment, and future generations.
