-- Who's teaching? --

Katelin Leblond was born and raised in Victoria B.C. Growing up on the west coast, Katelin has always been connected to nature and aware of the importance of environmental stewardship.

In 2009 Katelin graduated from Royal Roads University with a BCOM focusing in Entrepreneurial Management. After graduation she moved to Nova Scotia to be with her, now husband, who was posted there as a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Becoming a mother increased Katelin's desire to lessen her carbon footprint and she began exploring ways to live more sustainably. In January 2014 she learned about Zero Waste living and was inspired to transition her family to live this way. Today, she advocates living simply and is working to change the misconceptions surrounding Zero Waste to make the lifestyle more accessible.
