What's Your Story? Eco-ethical
What's Your Story? features the different characters that roam the streets of Toronto. Every Monday and Thursday, a new person shares their story, likes and dislikes about the city, a little secret and more.
What neighbourhood are you from? Jarvis and Isabella
What do you 'do'? I own an eco-ethical clothing store on Yonge Street called, Green Is Black.
How long have you been in Toronto? 3 years
What's your story?
In high school, I made all of my clothing out of reclaimed material and also did some modeling. Post-secondary wise, I went into social services in non-profit and I just decided to make the switch to for profit. I felt like I could give people the choices that I thought were available and the ability to vote with their dollar for what they believe in. The store is a good combination of my interests.
Favorite thing(s) about Toronto:
The neighborhoods. I like how it's divided into neighborhoods. And the people.
Least favorite thing(s) about Toronto:
You have 24 hours to spend with someone who's never been to Toronto before - what do you do?
I would take them to brunch at Pulp Kitchen and then, I would take out an AutoShare car to visit all of my favorite neighborhoods like Kensington and Leslieville. For lunch, I would take them to Camros for BeauVega dessert. I would take them to dinner at Live and then, take them out dancing to one of the many neat clubs.
One thing that your friends/family don't know about you:
Sometimes, I might not go out if I have a really great book. I might say I'm not up for it.
