Hello and welcome! I'm Candice, the heart and soul behind The Eco Hub. It's a delight to see you here, especially if you're on the hunt for intelligent, practical solutions for a greener lifestyle.
My commitment to the environment began three decades ago when I embarked on my career as an Environmental Journalist with The Weather Network. That role introduced me to numerous inspiring figures in the sustainability sector, many of whom weren't receiving the attention they deserved in mainstream outlets. Motivated by this, I took a leap of faith, leaving my position to pioneer Canada's first eco-centric TV program, 'A Greener Toronto.' That was nearly 18 years ago. Since then, I've been instrumental in crafting three additional eco-themed shows and a comprehensive 13-episode documentary series addressing climate change. To date, I've been involved in producing over 5,000 segments centered around sustainable living for various television and digital platforms.
The inception of The Eco Hub was driven by my desire to enlighten and inspire individuals to adopt mindful habits that contribute to a healthier home and a thriving planet. This platform culminates my 30-year journey, offering insights, guidance, and strategies to embrace an eco-friendly lifestyle. I'm deeply grateful for the incredible team and community pivotal to The Eco Hub's success. Your presence here means the world to me, even just a brief visit. Drawing from my extensive experience, we can chart a path towards sustainable living.
