When I first started creating natural products for my cleaning business back in 2005, it was out of necessity. There were no true 100% natural cleaning products available at that time and I wasn't about to settle for the so-called naturals that were being sold to us.
That goes for my personal and household products too. I crave transparency when it comes to purchasing products for myself, my loved ones, my home.
I need to know where my ingredients are coming from. Is that person harvesting the ingredients being given a fair wage? Are the farmers part of the Fair Trade Agreement? Is the ingredient being ethically sourced or is our need for more of it negatively affecting its future? Can I find this ingredient grown or created in Canada?
My desire to know what is in my products shaped the way I handcraft. My creations contain truly organic/natural and sustainable ingredients, ethically sourced through local (within Canada) small businesses. Having clients be so awesome with their support while requesting and testing my creations gave me the confidence I needed to create an arena to showcase them. Wanting to offer potential customers the same quality of product I give to myself and my clients came the idea of .........
ingredients purchased when needed products created when ordered
support local loyal to small business
zero waste business ethical & sustainable sourcing
no annual fees no minimal purchase.
How it Works
1. The first day of every month a product list is posted
2. Place your order by the 2nd Sunday of the month
3. Week 3 is all about the creating and packaging
4. Week 4 everything is ready to be picked up or delivered
Every month a product list is created, keeping favourites, adding seasonal products and introducing successfully tested creations - during this time members have an opportunity to be testers for product requests (you are limited to 2 testing sessions per year) posted on product page, paying only the cost of ingredients and packaging during the testing process. If you would like to see a product on the list, let me know, I will do the research and see if it is something that can be added.
The second Sunday of the month is the last day for ordering (some items have a limited number available as they are created at the first of the month to allow for curing/standing time such hard soaps and herb- infused products). At anytime you can request an order form but it has to be received by midnight of the second Sunday. You will receive an invoice with the option to pay with PayPal or wait until pickup/delivery to pay with cash.
During the 3rd week your order is created from scratch and packaged. The 4th week pick ups and deliveries arranged.

At the Green Goddess Campaign Collective, you will find 100% organic/natural products for women, men, teens, children, babies, your pets, your home and your business and as the months pass the list will change and grow.
When you became a member you are in charge. Through your suggestions (wish list) products are researched, tested and if successful, placed on the 'I'm available' list. Through your purchasing power you shape the direction of the Collective. If something isn't selling it is removed. If a product does not 'wow' in the testing mode it goes to the 'round table' and through a collective conversation we find ways to improve the product.
As a collective, we work together to create a community focused on supporting simplicity, zero waste, sustainable and ethical sourcing while offering products that are safe for us, our loved ones and the environment.

low cost without compromising on quality
fresh products using fresh ingredients
participation in a zero waste mandate
supporting small Canadian business owners
With no overhead costs, I can offer lower prices on my products while still purchasing quality ingredients that fit the standards of Just Another Natural Nut. Your order will be freshly handcrafted using just-ordered ingredients (I don't buy in large quantity to save money and have the remainder of ingredients sit on the self indefinitely).
Since my products aren't on shelves waiting to be purchased, I don't need to 'wow' with packaging. As a zero waste advocate and business, most of the information on products purchased is located here, on the website, limiting the amount of labeling needed on the containers.
As a small business owner, I made the commitment in 2005 to only purchase from other small business owners with the same standards I have for myself and my business. I will never source my ingredients and containers from big box stores, limiting my reach to within Canadian borders.
