About Us

Sunstone Lifestyle is based out of Sioux Lookout, Ontario and is a sustainable lifestyle + home goods shop. Here we endeavor to source high quality, earth friendly products that are intentional and practical. We believe that simplicity and balance is essential.

We research to ensure that the products we sell you are made of ingredients that are ethical both environmentally and socially. These products are naturally made from resources derived of the earth, so to contribute to an earth centered balance we plant one tree for every product sold. 

When shopping with us you are supporting a small Canadian business that also supports local! Our collection of goods are sourced from primarily Canadian makers who also share our values. Our carefully curated collection of innovative and ethical products offer simple solutions for everyday living including: laundry detergent, shampoo and conditioner bars, dryer balls, and food storage. Whether checking off your own shopping list or shopping for a thoughtful but practical gift, we are confident you will find what you need here. 

I'm Sam, the Founder + Owner of Sunstone Lifestyle. This shop began when I started to ask questions and when I started to listen. Climate change, deforestation, carbon footprint, plant based, and zero waste? In between all of my questions came the source of my motivation: plastic pollution. I finally understood how detrimental plastic was to our environment – fossil fuels to derive it, pollution to produce and transport it, and it never breaks down? It kills our sea life and is polluting the water? 

Then the guilt set it. I saw plastic for where it was, everywhere. Packaging, products, and materials. The remote northwestern Ontario town we are based out of had limited low waste options, if any at all. I was overcome with guilt and fear for the future, which is known now to me as eco-anxiety, so I made a goal: replace one plastic item at a time. 

Limiting plastic, or just reducing waste in general, is hard to do in a Western society that is built on automatic convenience. So many things are made out of plastic. So many disposable items that we really don't need. 

As I continued to replace plastic items, I challenged myself to make a bigger difference locally. That is how Sunstone Lifestyle was founded. I’ve captured the helpful hands of my husband, the enthusiasm of my sons, and support of family and friends along the way. I want for not only my family, but for our community, to have ethical and low waste product options. With our community of customers we have planted over 1,000 trees globally in partnership with One Tree Planted. 

As a growing business we are committed to both meeting your product needs and planting trees as we do it. Thank you for stopping in, so happy you did!
