Breathe easy with a ToxBox

In the spirit of information sharing, we like to sometimes focus on solutions for existing / older homes. This seems more relevant than ever as so many of us are staying home or otherwise conscious of pausing plans. This post focuses on healthy indoor air!

The ToxBox filter isn’t new, but it is an amazing Canadian product deserving of a bit of profile right now. Does your home have a conventional furnace? The ToxBox is for you.

Trade Show Cancellations

We wrote yesterday about the cancellation of the Green Living Show in Toronto this weekend due to measures being taken to stem the spread of COVID 19. We now know that the Ottawa Home & Garden Show has followed suit.

These are not postponed events, they are full cancellations, meaning they will not occur at all in 2020.

We do not yet have a statement about the Ottawa Cottage Life & Backyard Show, scheduled for mid-April. We assume it too is likely to be cancelled, but will confirm here when we know. Updated to note: this show has now also been cancelled.

Finally, we will obviously keep a close eye on developments and the latest guidance on gatherings in determining whether it makes sense to continue with our planned EkoModel Open House in late April.

In the meantime, best wishes to everyone. Stay healthy.







Join us at the Healthy Brain and Body Show

This inspirational show has returned to Ottawa for a third year, and we’re really looking forward to being there this coming weekend. Focused on everything related to health and wellness, the show will feature more than 100 booths, speakers, demos, sample and more.

Free to attend, this event supports H.E.L.P, helping our military and first responders affected by PTSD. Donations will be accepted at the door.
