The future starts with you.

Empowering the collective good to solve Lake Winnipeg's environmental crisis.


               Lake Winnipeg is the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world, yet it is      one of the most polluted. At almost 25,000 km², Lake Winnipeg’s shores connect to Treaty 1, Treaty 2, Treaty 3, and Treaty 5 land.

Saving Lake Winnipeg in 4 Steps

Optimizing natural Eco-system functioning to up-cycle runoff nutrients 



Cattails (Typha plants) contain nutrients (Phosphorus & Nitrogen) that contributes to eutrophication in Lake Winnipeg. Sustainable harvesting traps these nutrients before the plants decompose and prevents their release into the water system.


Fibres are extracted from the plants and processed into the materials that make our products. Products are pasteurized to remove any potential pathogens and pests. We track our footprint at each step along the way.


Give new life to recycled nutrient. The consumption is in itself an act of environmental stewardship, lending to long-term remediation efforts. Our products are 100% biodegradable. Everything we take from the earth, we are sure to put it back.

The Science

What is eutrophication?

Lake Winnipeg’s massive watershed extends throughout the prairies and beyond, receiving agricultural runoff that is dense in nutrients (Nitrogen & Phosphorus). These nutrients help plants thrive, but an overabundance leads to overgrowth – a problem that is especially bad in Lake Winnipeg, causing a certain species of algae to bloom. These algal blooms lead to fish kills, neurotoxin production, and aquatic dead zones.

How does harvesting Typha help?

In wetlands, Typha act as natural filters and are very good at absorbing nutrients before they enter fresh-water lakes. Harvesting Typha helps improve overall water quality by permanently removing nutrients. No uptake value is provided if these plants start to decompose and release those nutrients back into the water system.

How is this sustainable?

No pesticides, fertilizers, or additional water input is required for our products to be made. The removal of Typha  directly benefits the aquatic ecosystem by providing improved habitat for wildlife and increasing vegetation biodiversity. The end result is healthier wetlands emitting less methane and with greater carbon capture capabilities. As well as enhance water filtration and flood mitigation.
