Buy This Cup, Plant a Plant

Buy This Cup, Plant a Plant | 7-Eleven Saving Grace with Coffee

We all know that our love for coffee runs deep and strong (pun intended). We need some sort of caffeine to get through the crazy week ahead with early mornings, school routines and extra activities. We’re always on the go! I solely rely on my coffee at home and travelling… But what if I told you that when you purchase a coffee at 7-Eleven Canada you’re not only caffeinating yourself but you’re also somehow planting a tree!

Cool; right! Well that statement is true. Every time you purchase a hot beverage cup at any 7-Eleven Canada location, you are in fact contributing to a plant being planted at a local restoration site.

This program is dedicated to restoring Canadian areas that need it most, like the lovely landscapes in Fort McMurray, which were damaged by forest fires in 2016. With the help of local restoration groups, they have replanted fire resistant plants, so that when and if any forest fires trail through again, this area will fight against the fires and act as a fire retardant around the city. Very cool stuff!

I mean not only is this program hugely appreciated but I also appreciate the delicious taste of their coffees. I remember often when Owen was a little baby, Drew would run across the street for my sleep deprived morning coffees and it almost became routine and felt good to have in my hand. It was his romantic gesture while being a new mom. 7-Eleven Canada’s Exclusive Blend coffee blend won a Golden Bean trophy from the North American leg of the world’s largest coffee roasting competition; The Golden Bean. With their ongoing effort to being more environmentally friendly, you can always try get refills of their Exclusive Blend coffee (or any hot beverage) for 50 cents when you bring your own reusable mug!

  

On my way out or needing a quick caffeine fix at home it’s always nice knowing that what little I do contribute is going towards something really amazing for futures to come. That with one single recyclable cup, you’re making a difference on our planet, helping restore regions of growth for generations to come. I encourage you to give back to your communities and even though you may think that forests are full of plants, it takes many years for these plants to grow and honestly we can never have too many plants!

Good news for you, starting November 19th until November 24th 7-Eleven Canada will be hosting a Canada wide FREE coffee week for 7Rewards members!! Download the 7-Eleven App to participate and fill up a small cup for FREE and take home their Exclusive Blend!

For more information on 7-Eleven Canada’s Buy This Cup, Plant A Plant program, please visit www.7eleven.ca/restore and follow along their journey step by step and all over Canadian landscapes. Keep in check with areas that are blossoming and what ways you’re contributing! It’s nice and reassuring when you find companies like this that give back! #PlantAPlant

TELUS is giving kids across Canada a brighter future with the Friendly Future Foundation

The more I learn about TELUS and the more I spend time celebrating this company I realize more and more just how outstanding they are. Not only as a service provider for our families but also helping our families, youth in need and different charities across Canada. It’s not every day that we can be amazed at companies that put back into the communities where they operate as much as TELUS does. For that I’m so proud to stand behind them!

Our Family Stay At Pacific Sands Beach Front Resort | Tofino

It’s not very often that our family finds the time to go on vacation. With Drew’s hectic work schedule and Owen in school right now it’s almost impossible to find time to sneak away. Somehow the stars aligned and we managed to do it. All thanks to BC Ferries and Pacific Sands Resort. We had the best time the four of us hanging out and just relaxing taking in all the quietness. It truly was exactly what this family needed!…

Buying & Selling with ReShopper

I have a challenge for you. Look around your home, your kids rooms, your garage…and tell me, how many boxes of unused or outgrown items you have that belong to your children? If your like us over here, then your answer will probably be A LOT. We accumulate so many children’s items over the years, that they have either stopped loving or have outgrown OR just stop needing. Until recently we would stare at it trying to figure out what to do with it. Debating selling it or keeping it just in case? In reality, we most likely won’t use. …

Highlights from Blog Podium | Toronto 2017

Last weekend is still rolling around in my head! Myself and my blogging, mama friend Codi from Creative Wife Joyful Worker packed our bags and flew on Flair Airlines from Vancouver,B.C to Toronto en route to our favourite blogging event, Blog Podium. Also, meeting us there from Nova Scotia was my childhood best friend & maid of honour Katie from Wild Rose Buds. Now, it was really hard to compact everything we learnt in one day, so here it goes! …

Keeping My Family Safe | FortisBC Carbon Monoxide

It’s a scary thought to hear Carbon Monoxide is a “Silent Killer”. When you think about it, it really is and that’s hard being a mother trying to prevent the unimaginable from happening when you don’t even know it’s happening around you. In every home we’ve lived in we always had a CO detector to help us find the signs so I never feared too much. But, the more I started to read about it, the more I thought about the things we can do to help prevent the worst from happening. Many of these are preventable measures that can be done easily without much effort like booking annual inspections with eligible contractors found on Fortis BC’s website. As a mother, I know I like to control any situation that may stand in the way of my family’s safety. Which is why I’m talking more about CO poisoning in our home and creating more awareness!…
