The BEST Leggings!

Our favourite leggings have arrived!
Effort's basic black bamboo leggings have made their way back to our stores as the staple item for fall. The leggings are an amazing blend of 92% bamboo and 8% spandex. Most bamboo clothing is blended with cotton, or organic cotton, so being that these are almost 100% bamboo makes them unique! The natural properties of bamboo make it a no brainer to make bamboo leggings a must have for your fall wardrobe! Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial, extremely durable, and holds dye colours extremely well. Meaning that you will have these leggings for years to come, AND they will be the same pure black colour as when you bought them. Our staff can attest to all of these amazing qualities, as they have become one of their favourite items! Check out Fiber Options Victoria, or Ecoeverything Tofino for this new item, or call us toll free at 1-800-381-2138

Extended Summer Hours in Victoria

For the rest of the warm summer days, our Victoria location will be open from 9:30-7 pm from Monday-Saturday. Sundays we will remain open from 10-6. Come visit us bright and early, or on your way home from your work day!

Hemp Blend Bath Robes Now In Store!

Effort's brand hemp/cotton blend bath robes are now in stock. Hemp is the perfect material for a bath robe. Like bamboo, hemp is extremely anti-bacterial, meaning that you do not need to wash your hemp robe as often as a 100% cotton or poly blend one.

The Effort's hemp/cotton bath robe is a one size fits all item that features side pockets, french terry fabric, a belt and belt loops. It is also made in Canada!

Available at both Tofino and Victoria locations.
