My passion for sustainability started when I took several environmental classes during my Tourism Degree at Capilano University. Wanting to learn more, I enrolled in BCIT's Sustainable Business program. There, I completed research on textiles waste, motivating me to want to make a difference in the fashion industry. With no prior fashion production knowledge, I completed Factory45, an online accelerator program that takes sustainable apparel companies from idea to launch. Last year, I successfully launched NOVEL SUPPLY CO, a conscious local apparel company. Apparel is inspired by the West Coast lifestyle and is made locally in Vancouver, BC.
