 Meticulously crafted, these solid maple bowls are wood turned by a contracted shop in the USA. They are shipped to us in the rough, which means that they are not sanded and are unfinished. When we get them, we preform the appropriate drop tests and other tests according to toy manufacturing laws. The bowls that pass these tests are then carefully hand sanded smooth, both inside and out. Once smooth, The inside of each bowl is lovingly painted by hand with a brush using certified non-toxic paint followed by two coats of certified non-toxic gloss. The outside of the bowls are also coated with certified non-toxic gloss so that the maple is completely protected in the event of an accidental liquid spill. The gloss also makes them easier to clean and helps to prevent discolouration of wood and paint when washed in mild bleach solution.

One Tree Planted is a 501c3 nonprofit that plants
trees around the world. Their mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time.
Every $1 donated helps plant 1 tree. It's that simple. They also aim to raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.  They believe that businesses can be advocates for sustainability.

And so do we. As a business that relies on trees for its handcrafted goods, the least we can do is to ensure that we are using sustainable practices including making sure that the pine, aspen and maple we use are reforested for the next generations to enjoy. 

And as One Tree Planted so nicely puts it, 
By supporting tree-planting, businesses show that they are leaders in creating a healthier world in which humanity, nature, and wildlife can thrive. 

So why did we choose to go with a USA based tree planting charity instead of Canadian based? The answer is simple. This charity is able to plant 1 tree for $1 US dollar here in Canada. Canadian charities start at $3.99 per tree. Sure, it means that we cannot use anything we donate to the USA charity for tax break purposes - but that is not the point. We want to help replant what we use so that future generations can enjoy the trees too. With this charity along with your help, we can do more with less.

Most items are handcrafted for you when you order it. This time of year we do have some ready to stock items. Local pickup is available for last minute gifts.
