trees are essential—
Trees help draw carbon out of the atmosphere and they vitally contribute to our health and wellbeing. Everything we do at Sustain is for the betterment of this planet and our health. It is important to us to find meaningful ways to give back and throw a lifeline to the Earth—one of these ways is with the help of TreeEra, who plants 500 trees in Canada annually on our behalf. By supporting Sustain, you are also supporting initiatives to restore the land, reduce our carbon footprint, and combat the effects of climate change.Learn more
The moment you walk into Sustain you feel like you've just taken a breath of fresh air. Literally. Celine and Jonathan, the owners of Sustain, are so well versed in all areas of zero-waste, wellness and a thoughtful green lifestyle. All products are intensely researched and tested by Sustain. You never have to worry about making the cleaner, or safer choice for you and your family, Sustain has already done that research for you. I trust Sustain's products and am constantly inspired by their lifestyle, education and advocacy for planet Earth. They never stop learning, growing, and sharing their wisdom. They encourage healthier, sustainable and planet-friendlier choices and pave the way for the rest of us to make a difference in our everyday life.

Sustain is one of my favourite places to learn and to shop in Muskoka. Celine and Jonathan are a wealth of knowledge for me and my health journey. From answering questions about organic coffee to eco-friendly paint. This store has it all. I recently did a small renovation on my house and am so grateful to the owners and this store for helping my family and I to stay healthy.

Look around our home and everything had been influenced by Sustain. Becoming an eco-friendly family is a process. Sustain makes it so easy and my family is healthier for it. We are plastic-free and working on being zero-waste (stainless steel containers, glass jars, cloth reusable bags for bulk, produce, bamboo toothbrushes, wooden kitchen tools, beeswax food wrap). Our cleaning products are organic, non-toxic, refillable and they are incredible. Our skincare and hygiene products are wonderful and chemical-free. I use their Living Libations essential oils for my skincare. My skin is amazing with only two products. I’ve only touched on some of the amazing products our family uses on a daily basis from Sustain. Celine & Jonathan only carry products that they would trust to use for their own family. Sustain makes our life simple (less products, less waste) and healthier (non-toxic, organic, natural). Sustain has great coffee in their café. Stop in and tap into the wealth of knowledge, tips, recipes and quality products Sustain has to offer. Trust me, it will change you and your family’s life for the better!
