Our Earth Week feature was liked and shared and we cannot thank you enough! Your generous donations to the Georgian Bay Biosphere are greatly appreciated and the steps you took to clean up your neighbourhood were fantastic! If we all do our part, we can make a difference.
We are so fortunate that we have several businesses within the Parry Sound community that are also doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint and bring you natural and eco friendly products that are good for both the environment and you. Below is a list of local business that we wanted to spotlight including links to their websites so you can find out more information and connect with them directly.
