We Attend the DVBA AGM

Today Fiber Options Naturals Victoria attended the annual AGM for the DVBA, or Downtown Victoria Business Association. Fiber Options Naturals is a proud member of this wonderful organization. The event today was held at the Laurel Point Inn in their gorgeous dining room. The room was a buzz with local business men and woman, small business owners, and local politicians. The DVBA has been an amazing resource for small businesses like Fiber Options Naturals. It's programs help fund and develop initiatives such as the annual Canada Day celebrations, or the 'LoJo' ad campaign and branding, which we are a part of, being located on Lower Johnson!

Here is an excerpt from their website describing just exactly what the DVBA is all about...

Established on January 13, 2005, the Downtown Victoria Business Association (DVBA) is Victoria's voice and advocate for a vibrant and prosperous Downtown. Our mission is to make Downtown Victoria the destination of choice for Greater Victoria residents and visitors - for shopping, dining, entertainment, and other services.
The DVBA participates in collaborative initiatives to market, beautify, and enhance the Downtown business area, and to provide a clean, safe, and welcoming business environment. We are a non-profit, membership-based organization, funded by a levy assessment on properties within our boundaries

Fiber Options Naturals at The Hair Garden Salon

On Thursday June 4th, Fiber Options Naturals Victoria attended an open house at The Hair Garden Salon. The event was a part of the VBN's Member Hosted Open House series. It was an evening of networking in the intimate and gorgeous setting of The Hair Garden Salon. The Hair Garden is owned and operated by the spunky and passionate Jennifer Davies. The Salon is located in the Railyards, and is a home based business. It is an eco-friendly, ammonia free zone, where the features of 20% off Mom Makeover Mondays, and "Baby Sitter on Board" are exceptionally great for mums looking to be pampered in a kid friendly zone! We had a great time with this fellow VBN and Green Collective member. We think it is a great service that Jennifer is offering, so we decided to feature it on our blog!

Supplier Spotlight : Brandwear Basics

Recently, we have received many comments on how 'great the new colours are' of the new Spring/Summer merchandise that has arrived in our stores. While we have many great suppliers using many gorgeous colour palettes, the splashiest of the splashy very well may be our Brandwear Basics line!

Brandwear is a relatively new line to our stores. Focusing on basics for everyday men and women, the line offers our customers affordable and eco-friendly staple pieces for their wardrobe.

Why are we carrying Brandwear Basics? Many, many reasons!!!....

- Brandwear in our stores is made out of Bamboo - a renewable resource
- It is Made in Canada!
- Even better....it is made in Vancouver...so it is a local BC based business, employing BC residents!
For more information about this line, please feel free to contact us at contact@ecoeverything.com

Style Conscious Student Models

On May 23rd, fashions from Fiber Options Naturals were showcased in the Style Conscious Fashion Show held at Mt. Doug Secondary in Victoria BC. The show, organized by VIDEA, showcased fashions made of environmentally friendly fabrics and clothing made in socially responsible ways. We had three students visit us from Mt. Doug Secondary and Lambrick Park Secondary to get outfitted in our lastest Spring Eco Apparel.
We felt inspired that high school students were becoming introduced to eco-friendly alternatives and we truly commend VIDEA, Mt. Doug Secondary, and all of the other participating high schools, for organizing such a fun - yet educational event.

Here are some pictures from the fittings with the models at Fiber Options Naturals! We had fun with the urban canvas we have behind our downtown Victoria location!
Fashions showcased...
1) Cream Summer Dress by Nomads
Feather Headband by Thug Fairy Headbands
2) Blue Cap Sleeve Top by Nixxi
Black Knickers by Nixxi
