BC’s most eco-friendly tote bags made their debut on Sept 30 at our 10-year celebration/AGM and are now available to buy through our office. We have teamed up with local artist Jeffrey Boron to have two of his images printed on 100% Made in Canada totes. The bags are made of 100% post-consumer waste (re-milled cotton from clothing) and have a very low carbon footprint. All profits go to support GOERT.
The bags are large enough to carry groceries, art supplies, and even potted plants and are a stylish eco-friendly product that you can be proud to carry or give as a gift. The bag folds small for storage, and the handles are long enough to hang the bag from your car headrest.
Jeffrey Boron, a well-known professional artist, works in acrylic and oil, attempting to capture the play of light and colour on the natural world. Many of his smaller plein air pieces are painted among the hills and meadows of southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands that still retain remnant stands of Garry oaks. “As an artist I want my paintings to bring to the viewer a sense of the joy I feel when painting them, as well as highlighting the wonder and beauty of those small spots of nature that we live amongst but so often overlook in our busy lives.” Please have a look at his gallery of artwork suitable for home or office or his blog for his newest and smaller pieces. Jeffrey believes in the work we do and donates 25% of his art sales to GOERT.
We are developing a line of products specially chosen to reflect the beauty of Garry oak ecosystems. If you are an artist and would like to see your images on GOERT totes, or would like to suggest an artist, please contact us.
