Robin Hoodies is based in an Acadian community in Southwest Nova Scotia. The Acadian people are descendants of French settlers who in the early 1600s arrived in this area where they lived in harmony with the Mi’kmaw People. The forest that once covered all the Maritimes and beyond is known as the Acadian Forest. Starting in 1755, the Acadians were dispersed mainly to the thirteen New England colonies because of war between the French and British. Unfortunately, today both the forest and the people are found only in a few places - like this one. Almost all the models featured on our website and social media pages are young Acadians.
In recognition of the forest and the people, we have named our new soaps and shampoo bar with the Acadian words for some of the trees and plants that make up the Acadian Forest. We have also added a line to each description that serves as a reminder of the pollution created by single-use plastic and of the fact that these soaps are a way of cutting back on that pollution.
