Along with showers and flowers, warmer sunshine and longer days, April celebrates renewed life and on April 22nd, over one billion people in 175 countries will be celebrating the 49th annual Earth Day! This year’s Earth Day theme is ‘Protect Our Species’, bringing awareness to the rapid extinction of species around the world, and its link to climate change, deforestation and pollution.

So what can we do? We may not be able to fix the world alone but we can help. We can do the small stuff… recycle, eat local, treasure trees and choose used. Together we will make a change.

In celebration of Earth Day, we have found two great Moms in our community who are not only helping parents, but helping to nurture our planet too!

Bay B Boutique Children’s Store

Bay B Boutique in Halifax’s North End buys gently used clothing and helps to recycle these perfectly usable items, keeping them from our landfills. The owner, Hayley Mills, has been operating this boutique since 2015 with continual growth and success each year. In addition to helping our planet, Bay B Boutique helps parents afford quality clothing at discount pricing and offers store credit or cash for kids clothes that are still in great shape.

Each year, there are tens of thousands of clothing and kids items that are reused and recycled through Bay B Boutique to reduce our waste. In addition to the recycling of items through the store, the boutique ensures to reduce its own waste as much as possible by donating unsold items at the end of each season to the Nova Scotia Foster Family Association. This earth friendly, waste-free business strives to protect the environment in every way.

In celebration of Earth Day, Bay B Boutique will be offering a 25% discount on everything in the store! Stop by on Tuesday, April 23rd to Sunday, April 28th to take part in this special Earth Day offer!


Bay B Boutique Hair Salon

Partnered inside the boutique is a family hair salon, using all-natural hair products. Are baby’s locks getting long? Katie Oster offers first haircuts in a child-friendly environment for only $5. This holistic salon offers eco-friendly hair-care products that are safe for the whole family and specializes in a calmer, soothing atmosphere for children. How about parents? This family-friendly salon recognizes that healthy humans are a big part of a healthy planet. They offer FREE child care in the store while you are getting rejuvenated with a haircut or other hair services – a real treat for new Moms, especially!

Everyone benefits from a healthy planet so let’s make everyday our Earth Day!
