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 detail oriented creative with a passion for supporting Canadian made.
As an avid shopper growing up, being enlightened about the dark side of the garment industry was an overwhelming revelation. From that life altering moment forward, I knew I wanted to support companies operating with intention and respect for people and the planet. With a background in Information Design, I help make My New Neighbour an aesthetically pleasing and easy to use resource so more people are empowered to make purchases that generate a positive impact. Whether it’s sharing pieces by Canadian makers or championing linen garments, I’m excited to spread a message of a more ethical lifestyle!
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.
