On this episode, Kaya shares her recent experience to Kenya, how she went from studying tourism to sustainability to becoming her own business owner. She digs into what our clothing is made of, fast fashion and why hemp isn't for hippies anymore.
We jam on minimalism, purging and defining your own style. We share our favourite childhood outfits, why you don't put Becel in bulletproof coffee and getting sucked into the vortex of reality TV.
Kaya talks about the surreal experience of winning the United Nation North America Young Champion of the Earth prize, her trip to Kenya and her goal of creating a closed loop clothing line and factory automation. Not to mention Ellie Goulding. You'll have to listen in to find out more.
Follow along as Kaya goes to Germany and New York as part of the United Nations press tour. #NBD

Novel Supply Co
From their website:
A small, locally-inspired conscious apparel company based in Vancouver, BC.
Our apparel is designed with the West Coast lifestyle in mind. We love weekend adventures to cozy cabins, exploring the local mountains, bike crawls, craft brew, seawall strolls, street art and hunting for the best cup of joe in the city.
We care about this place we call home and want to leave it in better shape than we found it for future generations to come. That's why we make the most conscious choices when it comes to fabrics, inks, thread, packaging and shipping.
