Solus Decor have collaborated with Border in a Box to create a sensory garden for BBC Gardeners’ World Live.

Solus Decor worked with Border in a Box to provide the water element of the sensory border at BBC Gardeners’ World Live entitled the Jar of Life.  The border had a focus on wellbeing using sensory plants with inviting scents, taste, touch and feel. Border in a Box incorporated the Solus Decor water feature as part of the design to contribute to the feeling of calm and wellbeing in this sensory space.

Solus donates water bowl to Project Empty Bowl

Project Empty Bowl

One of Solus’s founding principles is social responsibility. We believe it’s important to support and nurture the city in which we live and as such, have just participated in another Vancouver fundraiser, Project Empty Bowl held on June 11th. Here we happily donated a Solus Water bowl for auction.

If you’re not yet familiar with Project Empty bowl, it’s an annual fundraiser put on by A Loving Spoonful which is a volunteer-driven, non-partisan Society that provides free, nutritious meals to people living with HIV/AIDS in Greater Vancouver.

The evening was joyous with food, music and friendship all for the sole purpose of raising funds so that A Loving Spoonful can put specially prepared meals on the tables of those unable to provide for themselves due to their medical condition. Each attendee at this event receives a special handcrafted bowl as a reminder of their generous contribution to this very worthy cause. We like to think our Solus water bowl was also symbolic for this purpose.

The Solus water bowl was auctioned off and won by Jay Boucher of Vancouver. We’re happy that our donation helped towards the $95,000 raised. Have a sneak peak at our new water bowls in action!
