Meet Shelby. A hustler for harmony who is usually day dreaming about nutrient dense smoothies and bamboo toothbrushes.
Holding a degree in land and food systems and currently pursuing another in social work,I am a social justice junkie with a big ol' soft spot for keeping our planet beautiful. My New Neighbour is a creative way for me to indulge my Enneagram 1/idealist tendencies and explore the ways we can be more intentional with our everyday decisions. From buying ethical clothing to using waste free cosmetics, I'm thrilled to be a part of the conscious consumer movement.
Meet Teagan. A creative minded type ‘A’ personality with a love for all things design.
I truly believe that with each purchase we make, we are making a statement about our values and are creating the kind of world we and future generations will live in. I love seeing the growing commitment of Canadians to shop local and am dedicated to encouraging the community to purchase items made with a purpose.
Meet Vian. A passionate photographer and web developer.
As a photographer working in the local fashion industry I hope to see a greater focus on supporting local business where we can, and being more conscious about how we spend our money, when we can't.
Together, We seek to combine our passion for ethical living by initiating a dialogue about the lives of the people and places we carry with us through every purchase. We will be exploring the “how-tos” of buying locally and ethically in Canada. We will be exposing how our purchases can ultimately change another individual’s life from trapped to empowered, from terrible to terrific, from survival to revival.
