Thank You for Supporting TBAY❤️AUS

Group photo of everyone at the fundraiser wearing TBAY <3 AUS shirts

Thank you to everyone that came out for our fundraiser in celebration of Australia Day. Your support helped us to surpass our fundraising goal and raise over $11,000!

Australia’s bush fires have created one of the worst natural disasters in Australian history. More than 15 million acres have burned, 1 BILLION animals have died, over 2,000 homes have been destroyed, at least 25 deaths have occurred, and thousands of people have been displaced. It will take years to recover from this disaster caused by the climate change crisis.

$15 from each t-shirt will be donated to the following Australian charities: 

WIRES Wildlife Rescue

Red Cross Australia 

Items for the fundraiser are still available, and we have even introduced a new CAD❤️AUS shirt, so if you haven't grabbed yours yet, you had better hurry!

Camp? Cottage? Cabin? The Canadian summer home debate.

Where do you summer? Camp, the cabin, the cottage, the lake, the chalet, the shack or – my, aren't we fancy – the summer house?

The whole phenomenon of heading to our summer getaway on the weekend is a central part of the Canadian experience. It doesn't matter how much we argue about they're called, our summer getaway spots bring together families, friends, and Canadians. 

The Word of Choice for Summer Home across Canada 

Camp - (We're based in Northern Ontario, so this of course tops our list)! 

  • 78% Northwestern Ontario 
  • 28% New Brunswick 
  • less than 10% in the rest of the country 

Cottage

  • dominant in Prince Edward Island (67%) ), Nova Scotia (78%), and Eastern and Southern Ontario, peaking at 89% in Toronto (where a few also refer to "the lake," which is more widely embraced in Manitoba, along with cottage and cabin).
  • Pretty well every region admits cottage as an option, but that doesn't mean they have to like it.

Cabin 

  • 85% in Newfoundland
  • 72 % in Vancouver-Victoria area
  • 0% in Ontario 
  •  66% in Alberta
  • 58% in Saskatchewan

Chalet 

  • barely registers outside Quebec, but 21% of English-speaking Montrealers use the term

We're interested to know, any takers on the shack???

Click here to shop Camp/Cottage/Cabin Tank.

 

Here's to summer! Hope you get to enjoy it out at the camp, cottage, lake, cabin, chalet, or shack!

Ungalli Clothing Co. + Local Collective

 Image result for divider for blog 

 

When we started Ungalli in 2014, it was simply a pipe dream. We wanted to save the world by making clothing from recycled water bottles. We got some weird looks about our idea to say the least. 

Fast forward 5 years later: our pipe dream is our full time job, we've won awards for Ungalli's sustainable initiatives, we ship worldwide, and have recycled almost 500 000 water bottles into clothing!

The only reason our pipe dream came to life was because of the support we received from our community in Thunder Bay. For every nonbeliever we met along the way, there were 5 of you ready and waiting to support us. You know who you are, and we thank you for ALWAYS having our backs. It means the world. 

With great excitement we are proud to introduce the logo for our new Thunder Bay Retail Store, opening March 1st, 2019.

Inspired by the support we've received while starting Ungalli, our store has been designed with space for other local entrepreneurs + creatives to sell their products. A one stop shop for the best of Thunder Bay.

 

 

A growing list of the brands you'll find inside our Local Collective:

1. Ungalli Clothing Co. 

2. Wild Badger

3. Gold Sparrow 

4. Tuija Hansen Fibre Design

5. Northies Brand  

6. Chicks N' Hens Designs 

7. Bloom Forward `

We are still accepting vendor applications. Please get in touch if you are interested in part of our Local Collective.

 

 

We hope you'll join us, along with our fellow entrepreneurs at our grand opening on March 1, 2019.

Here's to chasing your pipe dream!

Thank you for growing with us Thunder Bay,
