    In episode 22 of the Proudly Made in Canada podcast Connor sits down with Holly Singer, owner of Milk Jar Candle Company.

    Connor and Holly reminiscence about first meeting each other when Local Laundry collaborated with Milk Jar on our first collab candle, Sweater Weather, a maple-butter candle celebrating Canadian winters. The two get mushy when Connor refers to Milk Jar as our ‘sister company’ knowing that Local Laundry and Milk Jar have always been big supporters of each other's brands.

    Holly shares an inside look into how Milk Jar first got started, how she ditched nursing school to follow her dreams and how Milk Jar gives back while operating a purpose-driven company aimed at reducing its own and its customer’s carbon footprint.

    Recently Local Laundry and Milk Jar Candle have launched their second collab candle, Hang Dry. Hang Dry, the scent of the summer, is the newest addition to the collaboration family. Holly explains the name Hang Dry came from the nostalgia of summer linens drying the yard, giving each garment a distinct warmth and smell from the summer sun.

    PMIC - Episode 21 - Salima Stanley-Bhanji CEO of Humainologie

    Salima Stanley-Bhanji, CEO of Humainologie. Humainologie uses art, including film, to spread empathy, increase inclusion, and reduce discrimination.

    Salima laughs about her decision to leave the lustrious beaches of Australia to come to Calgary. Although Salima shares that after coming to Calgary to complete her law degree and acquire some work experience, Calgary never let her go. There were many similar ties between her home town and new digs in Calgary plus some familiarity in the cityscapes.

    Connor and Salima discuss how Humainologie has been navigating through COVID-19 and recently launching an online portal and component for Humainologie’s gallery. Throughout the last 4-5 years, Salima has created over 30 films. One of the most significant films was a seven-series film with the Canadian museum for human rights in Winnipeg that was filmed across Canada taking on on a variety of different topics.

    Salima shares her thoughts given the social change experienced by the Black Lives Matter movement. Because Humainologie is in the realm of anti-discrimination work they love to see so many people become interested in educating themselves and becoming strong allies in anti-racism. For Salima and Humainologie it’s promising to see so many people inspired into action!
