A Thank You to Kama Soap

Kama Soap has been a staple at the Fiber Options Naturals and Ecoeverything Stores for over a decade. The fragrant scent of the all natural soaps has become the familiar and inviting aroma that our customers associate with our stores.
The soaps are handmade with all natural ingredients on Saltspring Island. If you visit the Ganges Market in the summer time, you may recognize the brand, as they have been a staple vendor there for years as well. Our customers LOVE Kama soaps. The moisturizing and long lasting properties of the soap (along with the amazing scents) are what keep our regular soap customers returning again and again. While the Mint Tea Tree seems to be the most popular, Kama Soaps creates a plethora of over a dozen decadent kinds of soaps. All are made with different herbs and grains to add colour and texture, and a large amount of essential oils so that you are not left guessing which soap is which!
We are profiling Kama Soaps here on our blog for two reasons. We would like to first acknowledge the amazing quality of product that Sharon and her team have provided us since 1998. As well, we would like to provide them with a formal thank you for their contribution to our Victoria Earth Day 2009 Green Goodie Giveaway. They partnered with us to provide over 200 customers with free Kama Soap Tote Bags, and free Kama Bars of Soap! The Earth Day Celebration was a huge success, as it created awareness about Earth Day in an extremely fun way!
Kama Soaps are available at Fiber Options Naturals Tofino, and Fiber Options Naturals Victoria. Small and Large bars are available, as well as an assortment of bath salts, soaps on a rope, and specialty baby and complexion bars.
If you would like to order products through Fiber Options Naturals, please do not hesitate to call us at 1-800-381-2138 or email us at

Values Based Business Network

Fiber Options Naturals Victoria is a charter member of the Victoria Values Based Business Network, or VBN for short. We would like to profile this great organization in our blog, as it has provided us with great networking and educational opportunities since its start in 2004. The VBN is southern Vancouver Island's only organization specifically designed for progressive businesses. It is a place where we have gone to meet, mingle with, and learn from other sustainable and values based businesses in town. The VBN provides monthly networking opportunities as well as many educational events such as workshops and panel discussions. Fiber Options Naturals wanted to give back to this great organization, and so a few months ago, our Victoria Store Manager ran for a VBN board position. She was elected on, and has been excited to be working with them ever since. Community involvement is a huge part of Fiber Options' Values, so it could not have been a better fit to have a Fiber Options' representative serving on the VBN board!

Well - this is a little late, but we had to share the details anyways!!! On Earth Day (April 23rd) the winner of the Green Collective's Earth Day $1200 Shopping Spree, Elizabeth Peters, got carted around from store to store via a Kabuki Cab to spend her winnings! The 12 participating Green Collective stores each donated $100 to the event, making for a $1200 Shopping Spree at the 12 hippest and greenest stores Victoria has to offer! If you are not familiar with what this event was about, please check out the previous two postings!!!

Congratulations again to Elizabeth, the winner of the prize!
