We are so excited to finally be able to announce that Brave Soles is part of the 2018 cohort for the Agents of Change program at the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) in Toronto.
Here's what this means in plain English...
The Agents of Change: Climate Solutions is a joint effort between the Government of Ontario and the Centre for Social Innovation. It's designed to help startups from a variety of backgrounds with one common goal: to build businesses that are going to help in the fight against climate change.
Some of us are fashion businesses, some of us are agriculture initiatives and one of us is even figuring out how to make massive amounts of bread from beer :)
All of us are excited to have the opportunity to join forces and collectively work together for a better future we can all share in.
Over the next year, we will be working closely to learn how to drastically cut down our greenhouse gas emissions, how to improve our supply chain management and how to build a sustainable business that can flourish because we are putting people, planet, and prosperity on a level playing field.
We don't just want to say we believe in building a sustainable fashion industry - we want to prove to ourselves and our world that it is possible.
We are honored to be part of this new adventure, and you are part of that story.
We will keep you updated as we learn and grow through this process and continue to create change through beauty and courage.
Thanks for believing in us and thanks for having such great taste in shoes!
