Here is a little about our Guest:

Laura Newton, Founder of The Kind Matter Company, helps to guide families through their journey towards living a low-waste, sustainable lifestyle. She promotes being mindful and intentional with the items we bring into our homes and provides realistic tips and tricks to reduce waste.

Laura's passion to do better by our planet set her path to create a space for her community to come, not only to source items that support a low-waste lifestyle but where they would be introduced to talented local makers creating beautiful eco-friendly items. The Kind Matter Company has evolved quickly into more than just a place to shop. The stores hold space for people to explore their own role in the well-being of our planet, encourages a safe place to ask questions, share ideas and work collectively towards a better future.

A little about our Moderator:

Anna Hart - Athletics Evening Supervisor and Events Coordinator

Hart Creative Co is a small business with a strong focus on eco-conscious goods, natural fibres, and community. Anna started Hart Creative after she began to swap out common single-use items in her household for their re-usable, natural counterparts. When Anna couldn't find an eco-swap locally, she decided to make it. It is through much research of textiles, product design and testing that she has created a wide variety of eco-conscious items for household and personal use. Community is important to Anna, making sure she supports local shops when sourcing her materials, and supporting other eco-makers and shops in her journey. She truly believes in the greater idea of sustainability and community over competition.
