The Eco Hub is a digital media company founded by journalist Candice Batista. At its core is a website that connects conscious consumers to brands and companies that care about people and the planet.
Our goal is to empower Canadians to make informed and thoughtful decisions about the things they purchase daily. We believe that consumers have the power to drive large-scale environmental and social impact through their everyday purchases.
We make careful and informed decisions about the products and stories we feature here on The Eco Hub; we’ve done all hard work for you.
Our ultimate goal is to provide you, our readers, with the resources you need to find chic, stylish, sustainable, affordable, made in Canada alternatives to everyday items.
We are dedicated to bringing you the latest in news, trends, healthy living and wellness and want you to live a healthy, mindful, gorgeous life without sacrificing a thing!
As a celebrity Ambassador for World Animal Protection, I work to end the needless suffering of animals, influence decision makers to put animals on the global agenda, help the world see how important animals are to all of us and inspire people to change animals’ lives for the better.

We also work closely with Nature Canada, as one of their Women For Nature Ambassadors, we help to raise awareness and work to permanently conserve and protect nature and conserve Canada’s land and waters and saving species from extinction.
Nature Canada aims to accelerate our positive impact on the natural world with the collaborative partnership of 150 women of influence. Women for Nature is the collaborative voices of Canadian women with vision – women of influence who chose to demonstrate their passion for nature and pass their values on to others to drive change. Women for Nature is a philanthropic initiative comprised of professional women from across Canada – this unique partnership of motivated and influential women champion Nature Canada’s work to their network of colleagues and friends. Together we will be more effective in our efforts to save wildlife, protect nature and inspire young leaders for nature.
Nature Canada was founded in 1939 to honour Mabel Frances Whittemore, an educator and nature lover whose main goal in life was to share her passion for nature with others. Our mission is to protect and conserve wildlife and habitats in Canada by engaging people and advocating on behalf of nature. We are a member-based non-profit organization of 40,000 supporters and more than 350 naturalist organizations across Canada..
