It’s no secret that reshoring – the term used for a resurgence of homegrown manufacturing – is a hot topic. And no one knows more about it than Kathy Cheng, President of Redwood Classics Apparel.

As Redwood Classics leads the push for reshoring apparel manufacturing here in Canada, Kathy is often asked to provide her thoughts on why this is such an important movement. Recently, she chatted with Now Toronto about George Brown College’s brand new sustainable fashion program.

“Brands are finding there’s quality control in being made locally. Communication is easier, problems are solved more quickly, shipping time and the use of fossil fuels in getting the product to you are reduced,” Kathy told Now Toronto.

Have you ever heard of a singing room? When it comes to beauty products, it’s probably not what you’re imagining. Our friends at TO112 use a singing room to infuse their products with literal good vibrations. Read their latest blog below to find out just what this is all about.

We believe that everything has vibrations. Positive and negative energies are constantly buzzing all around us, infusing everything we do. Have you ever been around someone and felt negative vibes? Even if they’re not saying a word, the energy they give off generates a unique pattern that can be felt by astute observers. If you’re in tune with your surroundings, these negative energies can sometimes be overwhelming.

That’s why we decided to take the phrase “no bad vibes” to the next level. All of our liquid To112 products have been charged with the potent sound frequency of 528 hertz. According to award-winning author, filmmaker, pharma-whistleblower Dr. Leonard Horowitz, this cherished frequency can resonate love, encourage DNA repair and improve health as it brings balance and love to the body with every personal cleansing ritual. It’s important to take time to cleanse your body and your spirit of the negative vibrations that swirl around, trying to take over and change your mindset.

Ridding ourselves of bad vibes is so important to us that we store all of our products in our revolutionary Singing Room. Constantly vibrating at 528 hertz, the Singing Room ensures the maximum potency of our products, ensuring that each Cleanse-Condition-Console ritual our users undertake comes with the added benefit of literally bathing in love.

The Singing Room is located at To112’s head office and salon at 809 Queen Street in Toronto, Canada. It is located underground and features no windows so as to not be energetically interfered with. Rose Quartz, the crystal of unconditional love, and Aquamarine, crystals that have strong love and protection properties, are placed in the center of the space to infuse their healing energies into the products. A surround-sound system plays constantly to keep the room vibrating at 528 hertz and channel those vibrations into all of the liquid products.

What does the Singing Room sound like? Think of it like humming – but in a constant tone of the Solfeggio frequency of Mi and on continuous play for maximum absorption. We also cleanse the Singing Room daily with sage smudging to release any negative energy or unwanted intentions.

While the vibrations generated by the 528 hertz frequency may not be a physically transforming thing, they are metaphysically moving. If you’ve ever felt yourself giving into negative energies, starting your own cleansing ritual is a great way to live in harmony with your surroundings. You can even start an incense ritual, which we have written about extensively on our blog.

Banish those bad vibes and start Spring with a positive outlook. Begin with your own cleansing ritual that is based in science AND love.
