    Creating Global Impact with The Earth Group

    Creating Global Impact with The Earth Group

    The Earth Group exists entirely to provide school meals to children globally, while minimizing our impact on the planet wherever possible. I chat with co-founder Kori Chilibeck on how his company is on a mission to changing the narrative, with profits of the products purchased going directly to the UN World Food Programme. We discuss the infamous 100% aluminum water bottles that I got to use on film sets with the return of single use products, how they work with local Albertan farmers to grow and sell fair trade teas and coffee, and why supporting businesses such as the Earth Group will allow us to work towards a sustainable and ethical world. 

    Check out the Earth Group's website at https://earthgroup.org to learn more about their mission and products.

    Sustainable Fashion with Celine Kabaker

    Sustainable Fashion with Celine Kabaker

    Fashion is one of the largest industries in the world, so it's both expected and apparent that there is a lot of time, energy and labour that goes into the market. However, due to the rapid increase in fast fashion, it has quickly become one of the largest polluting industries in the world.

    On this episode, I sit down with Celine Kabaker, owner and creator of ALMOST THERE, a sustainable fashion line focused on creating ethical and inclusive women's clothing. Celine's company is based in Los Angeles and she has combined her years of top tier fashion experience and passion for the environment into creating a brand for the people & the planet. 

    We discuss fast vs slow fashion, types of sustainable fabrics, the process of hiring and sourcing, giving back, how Almost There began, and Celine's background in fashion!
