The Eco Market in Kitchener was the very first marker we ever did and it was such a memorable experience. We had no idea what to expect and honestly didn't know if anyone would like our products or even care about what we were doing. Needless to say, we received so much love and support from our very own community and I couldn't think of a better welcoming into the world of markets and craft shows.
The team over at The Eco Market did a vendor spotlight article on us that we are pretty excited about and hope you will show it some love. Some of the key points in the article highlight exactly how we incorporate sustainability into our business.
How do you work to keep sustainability at the core of your business?
All of our products are handcrafted and support a slow fashion mindset. Many of our products are made from recycled materials, including newspaper and war scrap metal. Other products are made out of natural and eco friendly materials, including bamboo and jungle vine. We are careful when selecting products to offer our customers, making sure they are sustainable in nature and following fair trade principles.
Tell me about you. What got you here to a green business? Why?
I am a single young mother with 2 children. I have a degree in environmental management and have professional experience working with companies to improve their carbon footprint. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and when I decided to start my business, I knew that the concepts of sustainability and having a social aspect had to be a major part of my business model to keep me motivated and passionate about what I was doing.
