Sunday Morning Coffee

Sunday mornings I usually take time to catch up on stories I may not have time to read through the week. I thought I would share some that caught my eye this week.

It’s October…one of my favorites. No one sums the feeling up better than Anne…let’s make it a good one. 🙂

Local bloggers wreak havoc at IKEA… #IKEAHalifax – Curtains are Open

There was lots of excitement this week over IKEA opening in Dartmouth Crossing. I read a few media reports, but nothing captured it as hilariously as Curtains are Open who was part of the media tour a few days before the grand opening. I know many of the bloggers she talks about…this was just such fun! Great job Colleen. 🙂

It was a lovely evening that found a number of ECM bloggers at the Media Preview of the Brand New IKEA store in Dartmouth Crossing. We were there to have a look at IKEA’s largest sustainable store to date, be wined and dined in the infamous “Maritime Kitchen Party” tradition, listen to a little music, and mix and mingle with some folks from Head Office as well as invited guests.

LighthouseNow: “A library of bags” coming to Lunenburg

Another community producing Boomerang Bags…I love it! I always use my reusable bags when I go to the grocery store, but there is the odd time that I am in a shop and don’t have one with me…this is perfect! Great job. 🙂

A group from the Lunenburg area is putting a twist on the idea of reduce, reuse, recycle. Teresa Quilty and Katherine Barrett, both from Garden Lots, are working to bring a concept called Boomerang Bags to the South Shore. Boomerang Bags are made out of recycled material and are meant to reduce peoples’ reliance on plastic.
