Discover TGL Summer 2024 Box

I am delighted to introduce the Summer 2024 Box, a carefully curated collection that highlights six remarkable small businesses. From eco-friendly swaps to mindfully crafted goods, I am sure you’ll love what’s inside! Let’s dive in! 

Oversized Turkish Towel 

House of Jude

Georgetown, Ontario, Canada

Introducing: the Oversized Turkish Towel from House of Jude. Ethically crafted from 100% Turkish cotton and hand-dyed, this towel has a modern knotted fringe which adds the perfect amount of texture! Whether you use it after a bath, at the beach or pool, as a sarong, a cozy blanket, or a stylish scarf, this towel seamlessly adapts to your needs. The unique weave dries quickly and it’s naturally antibacterial so it will never have that damp towel smell! These towels are incredibly absorbent yet lightweight, allowing them to be folded up quite compact, making them a great summer adventure companion! 

Waterproof Wet Bag 

Your Green Kitchen

Nakusp, BC, Canada 

Prepare for summer swim trips with the Waterproof Wet Bag from Your Green Kitchen. Fully lined with waterproof material, this versatile bag is perfect for wet swimsuits, cloth diapers, and other damp items. Your Green Kitchen is dedicated to creating handcrafted zero-waste items, making sustainable living both practical and enjoyable.

Handcrafted Ceramic Sponge Holder

LDO Clayworks 

Calgary, Alberta, Canada 

This season's featured artist is Lori Ostergaard, owner and maker behind LDO Clayworks. In the Summer Box you’ll find a beautiful yet functional ceramic sponge holder, handcrafted by Lori in her home studio! 

What started as a fun night class, and a way to try something new turned into full time love for Lori - “I am grateful that I am able to picture a functional piece of pottery and then throw a lump of clay on a pottery wheel to shape it into something that can be used every day.  Each sponge holder has been made from local clay in a home studio on a pottery wheel and then glazed by hand. Since they are made by hand, each is unique.”

The sponge holder allows your sponge to air dry naturally and ensures it stays fresh and lasts longer! Along with the ceramic holder you’ll find a natural loofah sponge set in the Summer Box which pairs perfectly with the holder.

Dishwashing Loofah Sponge (Set of 2)


Toronto, Ontario, Canada 

Incorporate a new eco-friendly habit into your routine with this set of Dishwashing Loofah Sponges from Plantish.

With a soft side for lathering and a scrubby side for stubborn stains, they provide an excellent alternative to plastic sponges. Completely compostable, these loofahs also serve as an excellent addition to your garden at end of life! Plantish is a small business based out of Toronto, Ontario and focuses on creating low-impact, zero-waste plant-based items.
