Lindsey Goodchild has always been passionate about enabling a more sustainable society. A graduate from Ryerson University’s post-graduate Certificate in Sustainability Management program, she realized that there was a huge disconnect in translating theories and putting them into practice.

Lindsey then courted Dessy Daskalov—with beer and poutine—to convince her to become her business partner. For Lindsey, finding a partner who shared the same level of passion and ambition as she did was a huge step forward.
