Kind Matter Company

A sustainable Living store in Milton Ontario

Laura Newton is the FIRST entrepreneur in Milton Ontario who stood up and opened a much needed shop that sells a variety of products that are entirely made with a low waste living lifestyle in mind.  Laura, on the left is one of the first eco warriors in town who wants to help you go low waste.  That's me in the middle, with Eleanor Hayward.  We were just lucky enough to grab a picture with Laura while visiting her busy shop.


From bamboo toothbrushes, reusable draw string produce bags and a variety of refillable products, her shop is a regular drop in point for anyone who is committed to lowering their plastic waste.  When you shop here, you are voting with your dollar for a world with less plastic.  


Need a low waste gift for someone?  Laura also has some amazing gift options for someone wanting to go waste free but needs a few pushes in the right direction.

Lala Soap

A Low Waste Shop, massage spa and refil station all in one

Lori runs Lala Soap Company on Charles Street in Milton Ontario, and her passion for low waste and organic living has been part of her essence for many years.  Having grown up in a rural household, she has been able to bring those life lessons to her customers and guests.  


I am in love with her deodorant.  it comes in a glass jar and she will refill it for you.  Also, she offers bar shampoo, refillable Brommers Castile soap and diet free all natural bug spray.  One of the future trends that this region is set to see is an increase in bugs and other invasive species.  I like that her diet free bug spray does the trick while keeping my young children free from many chemicals that are associated with mainstream bug repellent.

Visit them for great DIY projects

Lala Soap is the only place in Milton (that I am aware of} that has the shop set up for some pretty awesome low waste DIY beauty projects.  Lori not only offers drop in dates where you don't need to make an appointment to come in (see our Calendar under the upcoming events page), she also runs birthday parties and other celebration events.  How cool would it be to have your daughter's birthday party be low waste and informative?  Click below to reach her page.
