Welcome! I’m Candice the founder of The Eco Hub & I’m so happy you stopped by to say hi! If you’re looking for shortcuts and smart ideas for healthy, green living that fit into an already full life, you’re in the right place.
A bit more about me: I began my eco journey 20 years ago as an Environmental Journalist at The Weather Network. While covering that beat, I got to meet so many wonderful people in the green space, many of whose stories were not being covered in the mainstream media. So, I left my job to create, host and produce the first eco-themed TV show in Canada, A Greener Toronto, which was almost 16 years ago. Since then I have created 3 more eco-shows and a 13-part documentary series on the issues surrounding climate change.
I decided to start this website to help and educate and empower people to make simple, mindful choices that lead to a healthy home and planet.
The Eco Hub is my life’s work and I am so proud of all the people that make it such a huge success. Thank you for being one of them, simply by stopping by. This website is a collection of my 20 years of experience, where I give you, my readers, tips and advice on how to navigate eco-friendly living. I believe that one person can make a difference and collectively we have the power to make the change needed to sustain us and the planet we call home.
