Hi there. I’m Ange, a socially conscious single-mother coparenting my four-and-a-half year old daughter, Charlotte. I’ve lived in three countries (including a stint in Nashville, Tennessee), but currently live in Toronto, Canada. I love spicy food, fair fashion, politics, non-toxic beauty, reading all the books, local food, organic coffee and so much vodka (they make it here in Ontario now, and it’s pretty effing good #drinklocal). I work hard, play hard enjoying the arts & culture scene, cooking, cycling, swimming and (gulp) dating. Swipe right.

Six years ago I was finishing my graduate studies in London, UK when I started Sasstainable to have a passion project and a creative outlet. I have over ten years of experience working for charities, social enterprises and luxury retail. I’ve devoted myself to understand the unique opportunities and challenges facing values-based businesses, to design purpose driven products and scale social and environmental impact. My career has taken me to Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Detroit, LA and New York, working with conscious companies and purpose driven brands. Sasstainable gives me a platform to partner with conscious companies as a brand architect, consultant, influencer, speaker and writer in sustainability. Whether parenting or working, I seek to fulfill my purpose, live out my values and make a real difference. Usually while drinking coffee (and a little vodka after 5pm).

So how did I end up here? After completing my BA Arts and Contemporary Studies, I was granted Ryerson University’s Top 30 Under 30 Alumni award in 2009 when I inspired tens of thousands of young people on a North American speaking tour that encouraged them to become global citizens. In 2013, I graduated MSc Environmental Management at the University of London, where I fostered my passion for corporate social responsibility and committed to helping conscious companies reach their best customers and tell their unique stories. I’ve served on the board of directors for Zooshare Biogas Co-operative and Toronto Green Community. And most importantly, I live with a legacy of love for the natural environment that was fostered with my grandparents on their rural property in Raglan, now a designated Natural Heritage System area in the Ontario Greenbelt. I’m now a spirited mix of city mouse and hippie these days.

I share my story with you here because I have the audacity to believe it is possible to make the world a better place, no matter where you come from, or where life leads you. So, I’m looking to partner with people who share that vision. Let’s connect and collaborate.
