Pressing Pause During Covid-19

Pause

Hello Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy but clear heart that I have decided to delay Jarr's launch in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. While Jarr is poised and ready to go, I have made the final call to press pause and stay home...for now. 

It's been especially hard for me to delay Jarr's delivery service knowing that delivery is exactly what so many of you need at this time. The reality is, I have two children at home full time who will not be going back into the classroom at the end of the week as planned. Pressing pause is what is right for my family and I am incredibly grateful I am able to make this call.

So, instead of jumping into Jarr, I am slowing down at home, spending more time cuddling, cooking, reading stories and listening to spectacular imaginative play (as well as trying to figure out WHAT to do with kids all day every day!).

While we are not delivering groceries yet, we will be here helping you through the current realities of how to reduce your packaging waste at this time. Stay tuned to our blog and social posts for inspiration on living lightly during Covid.

I also want to take this time to thank all the folks on the front lines who are actually out there in the world. Those providing health care, making/growing our food, keeping grocery stores open and all the others who are supporting our society with essential services, I am so deeply grateful for the important work you are doing. For those at home feeling all of the emotions of this uncertain time, I want you to know I am here with you, as so many are. We are on this path of reimagining together and we will do it together, even if it's from afar.

Thank you all for your patience while we move inward. When we are through this, Jarr will be on the other side.

I can't wait.

Wishing you and your loved ones health and happiness during this time,

Emily Sproule
CEO and Founder
