Thanks for joining me. I’m Angela, and I’ve worked hard to understand the unique opportunities and challenges facing values-based businesses. I have over eight years of experience working with charities, social enterprises and luxury retail. I’m the entrepreneur and founder of Sasstainable; advising conscious companies as a brand architect, consultant, speaker and writer in sustainability. I work full time for an incredible company, Koru Distribution, Canada’s largest wholesaler of premium sustainable lifestyle products.

Some fun facts: after completing my BA Arts and Contemporary Studies, I was granted Ryerson University’s Top 30 Under 30 Alumni award in 2009 and inspired tens of thousands of young people on a North American speaking tour. 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 currently sit on the Board of Directors for Zooshare Biogas Co-operative. My passion for the environment grew out of my family’s rural property in Raglan, Ontario, now a designated Natural Heritage System area in the Ontario Greenbelt.

I concentrated my professional experience and undergraduate education in the charitable sector, with a focus on socially conscious initiatives, social impact and youth engagement. Then, I studied and worked in corporate social responsibility, sustainability, climate change and strategic planning, marketing and communications. I help established companies create strategic change and start-ups scale strategic growth.

I’m also a published freelancer, contributing articles to the independent online magazine, Eluxe Magazine, and a multi-author site, Feelgood Style, among others. I continue to use creative writing communications and social media to make a contribution to social consciousness and sustainability, and leverage it professionally in my consultant and entrepreneurial roles. And I work hard, play hard: I enjoy Toronto’s arts & culture scene, cooking, cycling, yoga and fashion. I’ve lived in three countries, but currently live in Toronto, Canada with my amazing three-year-old daughter, Charlotte.

I’m always looking to partner with people who share my vision for a better world. Let’s connect, and collaborate.
