Did you know? DavidsTea is a Canadian company! We are big fans of their stunning visuals displayed on both their Twitter and Instagram feeds. As regular customers will know, they always feature a couple of teas in their stores, with the blend rotating each day. To help boost store visits, they post well-designed promotional images once a week on their Twitter letting their followers know exactly what free samples they can try that coming week. They are also pros at interacting with customers and are just about as excited as you are when a shipment is on the way.
Are you a foodie? Do you like to garden and grow your own fruits and vegetables? Legacy Greens is a green grocer in Kitchener, Ontario and their Instagram feed is perfect for you! We love the bright colours across their pictures, seeing produce growing in the fields, and their product features. They are also great at supporting other local businesses in their area. Go Legacy Greens!
#Quetico is a paddler’s paradise, a pristine #wilderness park that’s almost as big as Prince Edward Island! If you’re lucky, you might paddle by a moose grazing on pond lilies, spot a bald eagle soaring overhead, or hear the far-off howl of a wolf. There’s a Quetico moment around every bend. At night, you’ll drift off to the peaceful lapping of water, the sigh of pines and the prospect of another Quetico #sunrise. #PaddleON #canoe #canoeing #backcountry #atikokan #northwesternontario #nature #naturebeauty #lake #NationalPaddlingWeek
